The XXX event on Visual Arts in Camagüey

Traditionally held at the end of the month of September, the Fidelio Ponce Visual Arts gallery event has been being carried out this week due to the weather conditions left by Irma hurricane in Camagüey province and other ones throughout the nation.

The XXX Salon event was inaugurated at the Republic gallery, along with the exhibition of 42 works in competition which were made by 32 local artists from Villa Clara, Granma, Sancti Spíritus, Ciego de Ávila and Camagüey provinces, respectively.

Expert LiannyMontalván, who is the president of the Provincial Council of Painting in Camagüey province, said that space is featured by the main presence of painting and a variety of tridimensional works which proves the diversification of concepts on visual arts.

“The theoretician event is dedicated to the 50 years of the Artistic teaching and it is promoting the debate about different themes that are linked to the Caguayo Foundation about art promotion, as well as the challenges and realities of the institutional collecting and Camagüey as a precursor of the Cuban art, the artistic practices and the dynamic of the institution.” LiannyMontalván said.

The debates and the academic and professional exchanges included the exhibition of the audiovisual materials among them, the graduates from the branch of the Art Higher Institute (ISA) of Camagüey province and the Alas and roots collective exhibition, along with works carried out by students and professors from the Vicentina de la Torre Arts academic.
