Ana Fernandez

In Residence: Sep 12 – Nov 19, 2018

Exhibition: Nov 15, 2018 – Jan 13, 2019

For her Artpace project, AM/PM, Fernandez utilized the traditional technique of fresco to create paintings that act as a window to her life and memories. Painting on non-traditional surfaces such as trash cans and truck mirrors, Fernandez’s exhibition playfully situates viewers in a decidedly South Texas landscape within the gallery.
