Opening reception Tuesday, September 6th, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The exhibition runs from September 6-30, 2005. Hector H. Hernandez will exhibit a selection of large-scale paintings and drawings as well as small-scale prints which convey a feeling of optimism within continuous struggle to improve the world we live in. Hernandez works on murals, portraits and landscapes. "My inspiration comes from people who want to see a painting or a mural that reflects their culture and ideals. When I paint, I choose themes that are related to culture, landscapes and the human figure," he said. In fact, his works represent various themes including, diversity and celebrating one's culture. "My work carries out the message of celebrating our cultural heritage and the diversity that exists in today's society. This is done by delivering a positive message and using one's education like an instrument of transformation," he added.
