Leatherby Libraries hosts reception for new exhibit

October 5, 2010

Rueben Martinez describes how the artist of "Cindy #5," Vladimir Cora, paints with two hands. The painting is among many Cora pieces in the exhibit.

 The opening reception for one of the largest art exhibits ever displayed at Leatherby Libraries will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct 7, in the library’s second floor lobby.

“Pensamientos Illuminacion de Arte” features the lush and colorful paintings and sculptures of Herman Silla, Aydee Martinez, Vladimir Cora, Nicholas Hernandez and Emilia Garcia. The exhibit is in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and is hosted by the Leatherby Libraries and Presidential Fellow Rueben Martinez. The exhibit includes more than 50 pieces of art.  

Martinez is owner of Libreria Martinez and Art Gallery in Santa Ana and loaned many pieces from his private collection to the exhibit. The reception is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Laurie Cussalli at 714-532-7742 or gates@chapman.edu.
