Fri 11/10 @ 5-9PM
Earlier this year a group of Cleveland artists and movers and shakers in the arts community visited Cuba, and in return Cuban artists have been coming to Cleveland to work all year under the auspices of the Cleveland Foundations Creative Fusion program.
The Cleveland Print Room hosted two of them, Pilar Rubí and Sandra Ramos, along with local Creative Fusion artist Greg Martin, a tintype specialist whose work is familiar to regulars to CPR.
The results of Rubí’s and Ramoss work here, and Martin’s collaboration will be part of the next show at the Cleveland Print Room, titled Cuba Now. It will also feature the work of five Cleveland artists who have been to Cuba in the past year: Herb Ascherman Jr., Billy Delfs, Tom Hart, David Jurca and Steven Standley.
To make the opening Fri 11/10 more festive, Latina Descarga — Jackie Warren on piano, Sammy DeLeon on vocals and percussion, and Puatricia Bussert from Venezuala on guitar and vocals — will be playing sets in the gallery @ 5-6:30 and 7:30-8:00pm.
The show will be on view through Sat 11/25.
