geishaSouth Texas College’s Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery presents “Delicate Statements: Works in Pastel,” featuring artwork by Luis Fernando Hernandez. The exhibit opens Monday, July 1, 2013 and will be on view through Friday, Sept. 13. The Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

Luis Fernando Hernandez was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico, and has received artistic training in oil painting, watercolor, pencil, carbon, pastel, drawing, wash, color pencil, and acrylics. He was personally trained by master miniaturist Sergio Martinez Sanchez from 2008 – 2010. Hernandez continues his training in the dry pastel technique while working as a Director at Greco Consulting in Veracruz, Mexico.

“Hernandez’s soft and precise application of color allows the viewer to be easily drawn in,” said STC Art Gallery Associate Dawn Haughey. “He is very skilled in his technique and uses it to create a feeling of femininity and cultural pride.”

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.
