 Visual Art By Augusto C. Bordelois

Marting Lecture Series to Feature Author and Artist, Augusto C. Bordelois

The Daily Burden: The evolution of Augusto Bordelois’ body of work and his creative process, as influenced by social contexts from his beginning in Cuba to the present.

Augusto Bordelois states, “Before I am going to embark in or return to a series of paintings, I write some poetic prose or very short stories to put myself in the mood of the series. They are not descriptions or explanations of the visual artwork but background music to make me focus on a theme.” This is how the Daily Burden came to be formed, where Mr. Bordelois put together a collection of 38 writings with illustrations.

Mr. Bordelois graduated from the University of La Habana where he studied English Language and Literature as well as sculpture, costume design, classical drawing, painting and ceramics. Today he is a well known artist and author with art pieces in private collections all over the world including Asia, Europe and the Americas. He also currently has art featured in 1 Point 618 Gallery and the O Gallery in Ohio and the Knoerle & Baetting Gallery in Switzerland.

His studio is located in The Little Red Schoolhouse in Berea, OH where he is dedicated to offering affordable high quality art instruction for the community. In addition to being a private art teacher, he is also a member of Young Audiences of North East Ohio and the Ohio Arts Council.

The Marting Lecture Series in the Humanities was established in 1989 in conjunction with the re-dedication of Marting Hall, home of the Division of Humanities on the Baldwin Wallace University campus. Each semester a different discipline in the division presents a distinguished guest lecturer. The Marting Lecture Series has received generous and vital support from Isabel Marting and Elizabeth Marting Treuhaft.
