ROSLYN HARBOR, NY.- In response to a burgeoning Latin American population on Long Island and the surrounding environs, Nassau County Museum of Art is presenting "Latinas!", a major exhibition of Latin American art. "Latinas!" is planned as an important bridge to establish a one-world concept wherein people of all backgrounds can share their varied cultures with respect and pride. Latin art has exploded and become one of the leading voices to explore the richness of the Latin spirit and culture. In this exhibition, art created by women and images of “Woman” by women and the “other”, heighten awareness of the rich distinctive ethnic and historic roles women played to capture the imagination, particularly their inextricable connection with sustaining and nurturing life. The exhibition opens on January 10 and remains on view through February 28.

Artists represented include Fernando Botero (Colombia), Ana Maria Martinez (El Salvador), Vik Muniz (Brazil), Carlos Luna (Cuba), Adriana Varejao (Brazil), Victor Rodriguez (Mexico), Roberto Matta (Chile) and Fidelio Ponce de Leon (Cuba), and much more. The works are drawn from the museum’s extensive holdings of Latin American art and from important public and private collections.

The Subject is Women: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism
The Subject is "Women: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism" offers a lavish viewing of works by women and works depicting women. The exhibition will demonstrate how artists of these movements and eras depict women — and how women artists depict their own gender.
