The Illuminated Garden Comes To Oklahoma

Ana Maria Hernando

While Argentinian artist Ana Maria Hernando now lives in Boulder, Colo., she remains closely connected with South America. She continues to make regular visits to women on the continent who provide both inspiration and material for her works.

Hernando’s new exhibit at Oklahoma Contemporary features paintings, drawings, prints and resin plates grouped on the wall and floor. The title, El Jardin Illuminado or The Illuminated Garden, refers to the garden and flower themes in her work.

In addition to details about for-profit concerts, public town-halls, art gallery showings and the like, KGOU’s events calendars regularly include information on so-called “benefits” and fundraising events.

In this week's OneSix8, we highlight four such events where you can donate time, energy and even dollars and cents for a cause.
