“The Landscape Painter As Historian” is the title of the presentation by Heritage & Arts Town Liaison, and long time receptionist at the Town Hall Joan Palmero. Joan is an art enthusiast. Her goal is to introduce as many people as possible to what she calls “her friends”– that is the artists of Latin America beyond Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
Although born and raised in Belvedere, she has spent all of her adult life connected to Latin American culture. She lived in Mexico City where her children were born, and remained tied to the country and its people following her return to the United States.
She served as a Spanish/English translator for several years, and was a docent at the Mexican Museum for 6 years. She now does presentations on aspects of Latin American art that catch her eye.
This presentation of two well-known and respected Latin American artists revealing
two incredibly beautiful but very different painting styles and the history they preserved. The presentation will close with a brief potpourri of other artists (a “cameo appearance”). Audience participation is heartily encouraged.
