February Art Show: "Cuba: a country of contradictions"
by WWC professor and student
Walla Walla College invites you to the opening of a new show, “Cuba: a country of contradictions,” by art professor Martha Mason and art student Anne Haley on Monday, Feb. 5, from 5-7 p.m., in the Clyde and Mary Harris Gallery.
Last spring Mason and Haley were invited to join a 10-person tour of artists to Havana to attend the international Art Biennial. The group visited many sites of the biennial and were able to interact with and draw children on the streets. “Our impressions of the people were wholeheartedly positive,” says Mason.
“We were able to observe the sophisticated culture of traditional Havana as well as very contemporary and European influences by attending museums, going to concerts, and getting to know some of the insiders of the art scene in Old Havana,” Mason adds.
Through photographs, prints, drawings, and paintings, Mason hopes to share with others the lingering impressions of their Havana experience.
“Cuba: a country of contradictions” opens Monday, Feb. 5, and runs through the month of February. The gallery is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 2-5p.m., and on Wednesday from 5-8 p.m.
