Kentuckians have practiced the art of weaving for more than 200 years. Techniques represented in Even Coverlets Get the Blues range from overshot, double weave, and tied-biederwand to hooked rug making.
Arte Cubano highlights a universally agreed-upon characteristic of the island’s art: an incredible diversity. Cuban art is so rich in large part because of its diverse cultural blend of African, European, and Latin/Caribbean influences. Add to these traditional roots the revolution of 1959, and Cuban art occupies a unique aesthetic place in the contemporary art world.
Arte Cubano opens March 9, 2019, at the Kentucky Museum. An opening reception will be held on March 15, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., with opening remarks and refreshments at 6:30 p.m. as part of the Bowling Green Gallery Hop.
Visit the Kentucky Museum during the March 15th Gallery Hop to see four new art exhibits: Arte Cubano, Even Coverlets Get the Blues, Jacqui Lubbers: A Legacy in Weaving, and the US Bank Celebration of the Arts Show.
