Martin Cervantez enlisted in the Army Signal Corps in July 1986 as an illustrator, and it has drastically shaped his life ever since. Martin’s artwork and perspective are a direct result of these trying experiences. As a previous Artist in Residence at the U.S. Army Center of Military History, Martin was responsible for capturing the history of the army through his art, but since his deployment, he has found that he can utilize art as a therapeutic tool for recovery and self-discovery. Resilience and Rebirth is a visual exploration of Martin’s art therapy journey, and how its continued use has contributed to a whole new body of inspiring work: the Rebirth. The artist describes this transition as a “Rebirth through relocation, redefined vision, and relevance to my own experiences”. 

Learn more about Martin’s story and the power of art therapy at the reception Saturday, July 13, 6-8 p.m. Receptions are free and open to the public.

Martin will be instructing two classes in July at Windy Knoll Farm in Nokesville for ages 13-Adult.
