Since Soho Galleries opened its doors in November 2008, it has hosted three major exhibitions of Cuban art. This November, to coincide with its sixth anniversary, Soho Galleries will present Back to Cuba, a show highlighting several important Cuban artists and their recent work.
Jorge Antonio Jacas Vivanco (Santiago de Cuba, 1957) is a member of the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC ). He has participated in 47 group shows and 20 individual shows in Cuba and abroad. His many awards include the Award for Best Design (Feria Internacional Expo Caribe, 2005 ), Group (Ceramics Biennal Amelia Peláez , 2008) and the individual work “Paso Tres” (Ceramics Biennal Amelia Peláez , 2011).
In 2004 Jorge Jacas represented Cuba at the 8th Biennial of Ceramic Art in Belgium, and in 2009 he exhibited an individual show and was a member of the Jury at the Ceramics Biennal Amelia Peláez. His work is on permanent display in the National Museum of Contemporary Ceramics in Cuba, and is included in public and private collections in Germany, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Spain, United States, France, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Holland, Jamaica, Martinique, Mexico, Switzerland, and Venezuela.
Featured at the show will be a selection of his three-dimensional ceramic pieces, as well as two-dimensional works meant to be hung on the wall like canvases.
Jorge Jacas will be attending the show and will be available to discuss his work.
Sandra Dooley’s work is familiar to art collectors in Cuba and around the world.
Her combination of fabric and acrylic paints on canvas creates a multi-dimensional effect that breathes life into her subjects.
She has been exhibiting her work since 2000 in Cuba, Canada, Germany, Mexico, and the United States.
Back to Cuba opens at 7:00 pm Friday November 14, and runs through January 2015. Soho Galleries is at Calle 60, #400A, x 43 y 41, Centro, Merida. Tel: 928-5710.
