Work of EYS Art Teacher Fernando Hinostroza Featured in NYC Exhibit

The work of Nido EYS Art Teacher Fernando Hinostroza is being shown at the SMV Gallery on Times Square in New York City.

The SMV supports the Latino Art Community by hosting several exhibitions each year, and Fernando was one of three Chilean artists selected for the honor. The 6x6 Ceramic Tile exhibit opens February 21 and brings together 75 works and artists from 25 different countries to express diversity within the continuity of a shared art form. With only the limitations of using ceramics and the 6"x6" format, Chief Curator Ezequiel Taveras believes, "we are opening a window measuring 6"x6" that grants entry to the various languages and artists, where each has had the freedom to express—without limitation, through the use of a single substance and a common format—their distinctive ideas, concepts, and approaches, and in so doing, rather than creating distances, bring us together in a shared love of the material, the clay, the soil".

Fernando has been at Nido since 2000 and his work has been featured in numerous collective and individual exhibitions over the years. Fernando studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC and Universidad Católica (PUC), and is currently a part of the Huara Huara Taller in Santiago. Our students are lucky to learn from a successful and nurturing professional artist that encourages our smallest artists to use their imaginations and express themselves creatively. More information about the exhibit can be read in the Washington Post article here.
