Using both made forms and manipulated found objects, Anthony Cervino’s carefully composed forms often allude to the rituals, rites of passage and totemic beliefs that convey both sentimental and cultural meaning. Cervino’s sculptures invite personal associations and the passionate psyche of childhood — adventurous play, maternal comforts, imagined heroism, lurking bogymen and prayerful longings — but they also offer a critique of societal hierarchies, misplaced faith, wistful nostalgia and other constructs of personal identity and a cultural ethos.

Juana Estrada-Hernandez

March 16–25, 2023
Artist’s talk:
Tuesday, March 21 at 5 p.m.
Hislop Family Auditorium, Holmes Hall

Maiz is Who You Are, Who We Are

Juana Estrada Hernández was born in Luis Moya, Zacatecas, Mexico and immigrated to the United States when she was seven years old. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas and her Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Estrada Hernandez is a recipient of the Southern Graphic Council International Graduate Fellowship Award, SITE Scholars Award, Center of Fine Arts Dean Travel Award, UNM Student Conference Award Program and Ralph W. Douglas Endowed Memorial Scholarship. As an artist, Estrada Hernandez utilizes her experiences growing up in the United States as a young immigrant to create work that addresses social and political problems surrounding latinx migrant communities. Her creative practice stems from her love of drawing, Mexican folklore, pop-culture, Mexican culture and her family’s migration stories.
