Con Cariño: Works by Tiffany Moreno

April 5 - June 8, 2019


“Con Cariño” is an exploration of the natural tension between loss and healing. Humor and heartbreak are juxtaposed in imagery that feels both familiar and foreign. Strange characters and common objects are steeped in cultural iconography and playful phrases that create dissonance. But rather than a sheepish chuckle in an awkward situation, this work is meant to be tongue in cheek in the face of pain.



Opening Reception: Friday, April 5, 7-9pm


Gallery Talk: Saturday, April 13, 4pm

Empowerment Through The Arts Conference


Tiffany Moreno Artist Presentation

Con Cariño: Finding the Humor in Heartbreak

In this artist workshop, Tiffany Moreno will introduce her most recent body of works titled “Con Cariño” which explores the natural tension between loss and healing. The session will begin with a discussion about cultural dichos (sayings) that loved ones might share to make you laugh during a time of sorrow and loneliness. Then, participants (mother-daughter pairs) will have the opportunity to collaborate and paint on a shared canvas their own representation of an image or saying that symbolizes finding strength in times of pain.


In this particular conference, we will focus on the arts and the celebration of our cultural identity as women and Latinas.  Find YOUR inner artist, dancer and writer as we dare to express ourselves!
