Ana Maria Hernando / January 26, 2006
Thursday, Noon, Tweed Museum of Art

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Ana Maria Hernando studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts there, and later at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, earning a degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1990. She now maintains a studio practice in Boulder, Colorado, where she has taught at Naropa University. Hernando's work involves painting, embroidery, and the use of mixed media elements and installation formats. Inspiration for her work comes, in part, from her ethnic heritage, including the embroidered designs of mantillas, mantones and tablecloths made by anonymous women. Hernando's lecture is presented in conjunction with an exhibition of the artist's recent work at the Tweed Museum of Art from January 26 to March 19, 2006.

Presented by the Department of Art and Design in cooperation with the Tweed Museum of Art. Lectures are free and open to the public. To confirm times or for further information, call 218-726-8222 or 218-726-8225.
