Another ‘small step’ in San Antonio. As we did, among others, in Spain, UK, Poland or Germany, we love to be envolved on art exhibition and show our olive oil as a modern product.
Yesterday, Saturday, November 11th, we offered a tasting session at Hortensia Bueno exhibition hosted by Lone Star Art Space, Jesús Toro art space gallery and studio, located at Lone Star Art Distric, one of the most exciting area of San Antonio.
All the visitors were very surprised for this action: they’ve never seen that before and the brand ILOVEACEITE US, is based in San Antonio. Next art meeting will be at Pop Shop America.
Thank you Ben Bekchart, Hostensia´agent in the US, for inviting us.
Hortensia Bueno is a Mexican artist enchanted by magical realism. In her world women are sensuous, self-assured and full of love. These women are real, sometimes mystical, but always magical. They posses a “je ne sais quoi” that will make heads turn. Hortensia’s world is also filled with tropical reptiles, birds reminiscent of her early work in southeast Mexico when she was part of a team that restored the mural paintings in archeological sites. Churches, dogs and cats similarly come into being in her art in a playful manner.
Hortensia studied at “La Esmeralda”*, the National School of painting, sculpture and engraving in Mexico City. She studied painting and sculpture between 1980 and 1986. Her work has been shown and sold in Mexico, United States, Canada and Europe.
