Ana Maria de Martinez (El Salvador), "Teatro de naranjas" (Theater of Oranges) 1991. Oil on canvas, 40 x 40 inches . NCMA Permanent Collection.
ROSLYN HARBOR, NY.- Latin American art has exploded and become one of the leading voices to explore the richness of the Latin spirit and culture. In response to a burgeoning Latin American population on Long Island, Nassau County Museum of Art presents "Latinas!", a major exhibition of Latin American art in which art created by women and images of women in art heighten awareness of the rich distinctive ethnic and historic roles played by women, particularly women’s inextricable connection with sustaining and nurturing life. The exhibition opens on January 10 and remains on view through February 28.

Artists represented in Latinas! include Fernando Botero (Colombia), Ana Maria Martinez (El Salvador), Vik Muniz (Brazil), Carlos Luna (Cuba), Adriana Varejao (Brazil), Victor Rodriguez (Mexico) and many others. The 30 works included in the exhibition are drawn from the museum’s extensive holdings of Latin American art and from important public and private collections.

Nassau County Museum of Art is located at One Museum Drive (just off Northern Boulevard, Route 25A, two traffic lights west of Glen Cove Rd.) in Roslyn Harbor. Hours are 11 am to 4:45 pm Tuesday through Sunday. Admission to the main building, the Arnold & Joan Saltzman Fine Art Building, is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (62+) and $4 for students and children ages 4-12; includes admission to the MiniArtMuseum for Children. Members are always admitted free. There is a $2 parking fee on weekends (members free). The Museum Shop is open all museum hours.

Spanish language tours are available. For information, or to arrange a tour, call (516) 484-9338, ext. 12 or write to rforlenza@nassaumuseum.org
