Hola! Cuba: faces and places of the countryside, towns and cities of Cuba will be presented by three San Francisco photographers:Â Stacy Boorn, Alice Heimsoth and Chris Kibre.
July 4-26 at A Womanâ€™s Eye Gallery.Â Â
At once lively and timeworn, dignified and dilapidated, Cuba is a country of contradictions.Â We invite you to enter into the magic of Cuba through the very diverse perspectives of three women photographers.
Trapped in a time warp and reeling from an economic embargo that has grated for more than half a century, this is a country where you can wave goodbye to Western certainties and experience the unexpected.Â Classic American cars, musicians and young National Ballet students, cobble stone streets, fog laden valleys, tobacco fields, and old Havana are among the colorful and engaging subjects of the exhibit â€œHola! Cubaâ€.
An artist reception will be held Saturday and Sunday July 11-12th from noon to 5:00 PM.Â This wonderful party will coincide with the AWE Gallery Finale Party.Â After eight years A Womanâ€™s Eye Gallery is closing its doors, thanking its patrons and welcoming first time visitors with refreshing sparkling drinks, edibles and new work in both the AWE Gallery and the AWE Annex.
Cuban cigars will be among the door prizes and surprises.
On the final day of the show and the AWE Gallery, July 26, there will be a grand party including poetry, music, Cuban eats and drinks and notable sales!
