Aguila o Sol” (Heads or Tails): A Celebration of Art and Good Fortune is a retrospective exhibition resulting from 15 years of artistic efforts that aims to provide the viewer with a feast of color and movement. Yvette Fuentes presents a variety of artworks in media that ranges from indian ink to sophisticated mixed media and from figurative to abstract art.

“Aguila o Sol” (Heads or Tails) is a phrase that expresses Yvette Fuentes’s artistic philosophy and her perception of the art world. “Aguila o Sol” refers to the notion that artists and their work are subject to whims of Lady Fortune. As long as artists are able to transform their creative energy into works of art they will be rewarded. “Believing in hard work, and believing in ourselves is the best way to achieve our goals,” she asserts, adding “I am not good with words, let my paintings speak for me.”

The exhibition opens with a reception featuring live music & refreshments.  More information about the artist can be found online at yvettefuentes.com.

This exhibition is presented at SOMArts through participation in the Affordable Space Program, which provides below-market rental space, production and publicity assistance to nonprofit organizations. For more information visit our rentals page.
