Las Clavellinas, settled about 1,000 years ago, is one of the oldest villages around San Miguel. Despite sporadic water and electricity supplies, a group of Village women, otherwise without work, have formed a family garden and sewing workshop to improve their economic conditions. To help them, the artist Honore Kaplan has created a series of collage and oil pastel portraits of significant San Miguel women involved in community projects. These are now on show at the Gerry Hill Gallery at Reloj 46. A significant percentage of the proceeds will be donated to help the women of Las Clavellinas in their venture, which Mayor Lucy Núñez hopes will become a model for other similar programs.
