When: Sat., March 12, 7-11 p.m. 2016
Hailing from Corpus Christi but now firmly ensconced in the arts and culture of San Anto, Ana Fernandez paints in the romantic (yet totally realistic) manner of someone who has truly absorbed the Tex-Mex kitsch, absurdity and beauty of life in urban South Texas. Her work celebrates, through symbol-laden street scenes and voyeuristic looks at house fronts de la gente, the color, power, pride, resilience and penchant for drama (good and bad) of her culture. These works sing with the vibrancy of tejano life. This Saturday’s CAM exhibition opening at Silkwörm showcases Frenandez’s recent watercolors.
