Picture pages: In Mexico and Latin America, informational pamphlets called "fotonovelas" are common means by which the people learn about moral and health issues, like the dangers of smoking or the importance of condom use. The exhibit Pizcando Sueños - Harvesting Dreams, on loan from the Rural Women's Health Project in Gainesville, has chosen a group of fotonovelas celebrating the beliefs, values and culture of Mexican farm-working women. The collection particularly focuses on how mothers and daughters should relate, encouraging a relationship that's always open and understanding. The above photograph belongs to a fotonovela called La Otra Cara del Amor (The Other Face of Love) that discusses domestic violence and the importance of communication among family members. (reception Friday, Dec. 6; on display through Jan. 11; Crealde School of Visual Art)
