Exhibitions - Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with LCMA

Join the Lake County Museum of Art as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month showcasing three talented Hispanic artists: painter Yvonne Feavearyear, sculptor Carmen Rojas Gines, and photographer Juan Carlos Besares.

Yvonne Feavearyear has contributed to the Florida art show circuit for many years including a stint as a resident artist at Café TuTu Tango in Orlando. She chronicles her life experiences with the use of bold, vibrant colors and patterns declaring, "must be the Cuban in me!"

Carmen Rojas Gines grew up in Puerto Rico under the influence of her paternal grandmother, Magdalena (a Haute Couture Designer), which helped develop her passion for the arts. She works in her Ocala studio where she is developing new expressions in sculpture, painting and glass work.

Cuban-born Juan Carlos Besares began his visual passion just out of high school while working in community theater in Miami. After more than 30 years of theater, Mr. Besares jumped behind the lens of his camera on a journey of self discovery. His goal is to connect reality with a visual image and break it down into an emotional expression.
