Rostros de mi niñez

10528755_769122633111232_293728390_oSouth Texas College’s Technology Campus Library presents “Rostros de mi niñez (Faces of my Childhood),” an exhibit featuring photography by Verónica G. Cárdenas-Vento. The exhibit opens Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 and will be on display through Dec. 4. An artist lecture will be held at 6 p.m. on Oct. 2 at the Technology Campus Library, located at 3700 W. Military Hwy. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

In this exhibit, Cárdenas-Vento focuses on the many faces of childhood and has chosen to specifically highlight the children of Mexico.

“Through this selection of photographs I want to bring you the raw faces of childhood as I see them,” Cárdenas-Vento said. “It is a collection that ranges from the serious, mad and silly facial gestures that makes this phase of life so unique to photograph for me.”

Cárdenas-Vento earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from the University of Texas at Pan American and an associate’s degree in architectural drafting from South Texas College.

“Cárdenas-Vento’s photographic work speaks of the innocence and intrigue of being a child,” said Dawn Haughey, STC Library Art Gallery associate. “Most of the time our busy lives and schedules take us far away from being able to see anything through the eyes of a child. This exhibit allows us a few minutes to jump back into this exciting and carefree state of mind.”

STC’s Library Art Gallery exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.
