In Celebration of National Native American Heritage Month Women's Rights National Historical Park Presents Exhibit by Peruvian Artist Pedro Huamani

Seneca Falls, NY - In celebration of National Native American Heritage Month, Women’s Rights National Historical Park will be exhibiting the works of renowned artist Pedro Huamani from November 4 through 30, 2017. A reception will be held for the public to meet the artist at Women’s Rights National Historical Park’s Visitor Center on Saturday, November 4th at 2 pm.

Pedro Huamani’s exhibition features paintings that examine the mysticism of zoomorphic and anthropomorphic influence in pre-Columbian Peruvian art. Through his vivid colors, traditional style, and unique representations, the artwork transmits the power of supernatural beings from this ancient culture to the present.

The creative imagination behind Huamani's artwork combines his own experiences and dreams with the legends and spirit of ancient Gods to invoke a disturbing modernity. It is his desire to make an exceptional artistic representation of the ancient Peruvian inhabitants and bring back their culture of mysticism and an exotic world.

Huamani's art has most recently been exhibited at Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg, MD; the Hispanic Heritage Conference at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD; the Sandy Spring Heritage Folklife Festival in Sandy Spring, MD; Crossroads: Magic+Water in Silver Spring, MD; among many other exhibitions in his over 30 year history. Pedro Huamani’s work “The Musician: Pre-Columbian” was awarded Best in Show at 2015's Color: vivid, vibrant, and vital exhibition at R. Dixon Gallery in Seneca Falls, NY.
