IMG_3416The Studio at Gulf and Pine Welcomes Cuba Sojourn:

An “Island Journey from East to West” Art Exhibition Featuring 15 Cuban Artists

Exhibition Opens February 1; Special Reception Scheduled for February 13 from 5-8PM

The Studio at Gulf and Pine is thrilled to announce the opening of its newest exhibit, Cuba Sojourn, an Art Exhibition showcasing the work of 15 celebrated Cuban artists, presented by Friendship Association, a non-profit organization whose objective is to promote a spirit of friendship between the citizens of the United States and Cuba. Cuba Sojourn provides the opportunity to experience and purchase original works that are rarely seen in the U.S and to hear first hand from organizers about Cuba’s art scene past and present.

This is the first time many of these artists have been able to exhibit outside of Cuba, which has been made possible by the recent restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba. The month-long exhibition and its reception is the culmination of a cultural mission organized by Friendship Association volunteer and Editor of Ediciones Nuevos Mundos Soledad Pagliuca, and art collector and Longboat Key business owner Lucy Miller.

Pagliuca and Miller traveled by car, motorcycle and horseback, meeting with Cuban artists and selecting diverse paintings for the exhibit for fifteen days. Paintings are in a multitude of styles including abstraction, magic realism, still life, and representational landscapes.

The exhibition is open to the public February 1-March 1, Wednesday through Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at The Studio at Gulf and Pine, 10101 Gulf Drive, Anna Maria, Florida. A special reception will be held February 13 from 5:00 pm. – 8:00 p.m. The reception is open to the public and will give attendees the opportunity to meet and greet with exhibition artists. Traditional Cuban cuisine and a cash bar will be available. The event will be catered by The Sandbar Restaurant culinary team.

“This is a seminal moment in the history of our two countries and this is one of the most important exhibits we have ever had the privilege to host, “ said Ed Chiles, whose family owns The Studio. “My mother, Rhea Chiles, created The Studio ten years ago and it quickly became the anchor of cultural activities, classes and events on Pine Avenue. We are both incredibly proud to see The Studio showcasing this important event at this very important time in the history of our two country’s relationship.”
