Nan Hass Feldman’s delightful images will be on display in the North Hill Art Gallery beginning October, 21, 2019.
In the winter of 2018, Feldman visited the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Oaxaca, Mexico. There she was able to view a collection of 3,000-year-old Pre-Columbian figures. “The humanity and humor in these small clay figures was my inspiration,” she says. She photographed them, sketched them and finally brought them to life in her signature style. Since titles are important to her, she researched Mayan names and created a moniker for each one.
Join us to hear Nan talk about her experience in Oaxaca and to see the paintings it inspired.

What is life like in a small Honduran village? What would motivate its subsistence farmers to pull up stakes and seek asylum in America? This illustrated talk centers on a remote town in the moutains of Honduras where American volunteers have helped its residents overcome the challenges of extreme poverty. The narrative describes the many challenges they face – lack of educaiton, poor health, polluted water sources, and an uncaring government – and follows the villages’ progress as they work with teams of American doctors, teachers and engineers to resolve those problems. It also introduces a dismaying new problem – climate change – and speculates on how it may affect the region’s future and its flow of emigrants to the U.S. Join Earth Watch volunteer Mark Hopkins for this talk and photographic essay.
