Jacqueline Unanue, Chilean artist, opens a show at St. Asaph Gallery

 09/20/2016 - 17:16

As spectators filed in on September 16, the windows of the round gallery stayed open to let in a dying summer breeze, inviting the confusion of Jacqueline Unanue’s recently hung paintings with more windows. Though they may not be windows in a traditional sense, these selected works from two new series do serve a similar function: they let in the light and colors of a space external to us.

Abre exposición de Jacqueline Unanue, artista chilena, en St. Asaph Gallery

 09/20/2016 - 16:34

Mientras el aula redonda de St. Asaph Gallery se llenaba con espectadores, sus ventanas quedaban abiertas a las brisas del verano moribundo, detalle que al primero me permitió confundir las pinturas recién colgadas entre ellas con unas ventanas más. Y aunque no sean ventanas de la forma tradicional, las obras de las dos series nuevas de Jacqueline Unanue sí sirven una función similar: nos traen la luz y los colores de un espacio exterior.

OP-ED: Sr. Lee Iacocca, por favor visítenos en el Filadelfia Latino

Me encontré con este libro de nuevo esta semana, inicialmente lo recogí hace varios años en una tienda de Barnes & Noble en Filadelfia.

Es un libro que el ex director general de la Corporación Chrysler, el Sr. Lee Iacocca, escribió, después de su cambio mágico y también polémico de la empresa fabricante de automóviles, quien es una de las "Tres Grandes" en Estados Unidos.

OP-ED: Mr. Lee Iacocca, please come visit us in Latino Philadelphia

I came across this book again this week, after I first picked it up several years ago in a Barnes & Noble Store in Philadelphia.

It is a book the former CEO of Chrysler Corporation, Lee Iacocca, wrote, after his magical and also controversial turnaround of the car manufacturer company, one of the "Big Three" in America.

[OP-ED]: Why I failed to become an Engineer..

 08/16/2016 - 17:33

Well, there were already 2 in my family. 

My brother Agustín, Electrical Engineer, and my brother Raúl, who just retired from his noble profession, after a long and meritorious career as a Mechanical Engineer.

At age 16, I wanted to be, if not "somebody", at least somebody else.

Make my life count for something —not like in an act of heroism— but, in a more earthly purpose, to avoid being a blatant redundancy.

Or perhaps, God forbids, a plain-vanilla, mediocre, self-conceited brat.
