Patricia Mano Tolentino Opens “Promised Lands” Exhibit

Santo Domingo, May 29, 2018 – Dominican artist Patricia Mano Tolentino, with the support of the Embassy of Israel in Santo Domingo and the “Museo de las Casas Reales,” will present the exhibit “Promised Lands” which consists of 21 works in various formats depicting intimate and day-to-day landscapes in Israel.

The exhibit is part of the program scheduled by the Embassy to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the independence of Israel.  It will be open from June 6 to 18 at the “Museo de las Casas Reales” in Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone, and from June 21 to July 4th in the Cultural House of the north coast’s oceanfront town of Sosúa, near the city of Puerto Plata.

According to Mano Tolentino the exhibit is a “presentation of paintings and drawings depicting Israel, a country, nation, a divine pact. As a citizen of these lands, I will present a sensitive and testimonial journey from the deepest, passionate, mystic, and sublime parts of the country.  That’s how I’ve perceived my works.”

She also points out that the exhibit, inspired in the nation of Israel “hopes to be a collection of intimate, authentic, intense, sacred and recognizable landscapes.  Its landscapes are an expression of commitments, hope and sacrifice.”

“We know that in these lands we will find the roots of modern human history, religions, laws, that accompany or guide us through our daily living.”

Patricia Mano Tolentino, a member of the Dominican College of Visual Arts, received her degree in architecture from the National Superior Architectural School La Villette, in Paris, in 1985.

For more than 20 years she worked as an architect in France as an associate and director of urban and architectural projects.  She has also worked as an architect in the United States, the Dominican Republic and Israel.

Since the end of 2014 she has completely devoted her time to her paintings, participating in various collective exhibits in Israel and the Dominican Republic.

In 2017 she presented two individual exhibits at the Cervantes Institute in Tel Aviv and in Santo Domingo’s “Casa de Teatro,” also in the Colonial Zone.
