Anna Maria Hernando

5:30 p.m., Tuesday October 15

Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center will celebrate the opening of the The Illuminated Garden exhibition by Ana Maria Hernando  from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 15, 2013.  Additionally, Ms. Hernando will be joined by Kenneth Robinson for a poetry reading from the “The Salka Poetry Project” on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. Both events will be held in the Eleanor Kirkpatrick Gallery, 3000 General Pershing Blvd. in State Fair Park.  The reception and the poetry reading are free and open to the public.

Hernando is an extraordinary artist whose work delights the eye, lifts the spirit and refreshes the mind.  Born in Argentina, her work is inspired by the transparent acts she finds everywhere:  in the work of women, in the movement of flowers and in a loving hand. 

“One pressing image is that of my grandmothers embroidering tablecloths, washing and ironing.  Later these embroidered beauties would be used, get stained and covered with food.  The hours of loving work have become background.  These acts of transparent love, which might seem senseless and cannot be quantified in accounting books, inspire me,” said Hernando
