Marti, A.The first visiting artist of 2013 was Agenor Martí Fernández from Miami, Florida. Born in Havana, Cuba, Agenor paints and draws, and has a particular interest in maps. He has traveled extensively and spent a 3 year period living in Finland.

During his residency, Agenor was able to spend some time researching the history and landscapes of the region and incorporate both in his series of work that he completed during his stay.

A selection of Agenor’s original paintings are now available for purchase in the Gift Shop (prices range from $30-$125). The image at right is a self-portrait by Agenor.
