The Visual Arts department announces the opening of its first visiting artists exhibition of the academic year, "Land of Eternal Spring." The title comes from an interpretation of the word Quauhtemellan, the language of the ancient people of Guatemala, and the exhibit features paintings by Maynor Campos.
As a child of a mother who was a seamstress and a father who made furniture, Mr. Campos was influenced by the art and creativity all around him in Guatemala. He attended the National School of the Arts in Guatemala City, and there he says he discovered his personal painting style, a rich blend of folk art-like color and contemporary strokes. Mr. Campos moved to Boston in 1999 and since then his work, which is characterized by vibrant colors and rich landscapes, has reflected his experiences and observations of daily life in Guatemala.
The exhibit runs until October 31 in the Kane Gallery at Fenn, which is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. For further information call Tete Cobblah at (978) 318-3506 or the Fenn main desk at (978) 369-5800.
Here, Upper School students visit Mr. Campos after their sports practice.
