The plastic arts always honor the Supreme Guateque of the Cuban Peasantry

On its first day of online celebration, the 53rd edition of the Cucalambeana Fiesta gave Internet users a painting exhibition that portrays the soul of the Cuban countryside in all its splendor and naturalness; a comfort in the midst of a healthcare landscape that invites to reinvent life itself.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- Othoniel Morffis Valera, director of the Las Tunas Provincial Center for Visual Arts, said that the National Landscape Saloon reached the public from digital platforms. This time, the group of works by Daimí Silva, the exhibition by Silvia Quintana and the oil painting on canvas by Jarol Rodríguez were awarded prizes in photography.

These days, other collateral works by painters Eduardo Rivera Milanés and Wílber Ortega, invited to the event, are also shared. Accompanying the landscapes are the saloons of Illustrated Décima, Rural Woman, Traditional Dishes and Handicrafts, and Memories of the “Cucalambeana.”

Ricardo Arada, a methodologist of Plastic Arts of the Provincial Center of Cultural Centers, reported that of Illustrated Décima 24 works were compiled from the municipalities of Las Tunas, Jobabo, Puerto Padre, Jesús Menéndez, Majibacoa and Manatí. In Crafts, they add 79 with a great variety, ranging from pieces of fabric, fibers to mud. When referring to the exhibition about rural women, he highlighted the 50 photos that discover them in their work, social and community environment.

The plastic arts always honor the Supreme Guateque of the Cuban Peasantry, which on this occasion pays tribute to the 191 anniversary of the birth of Juan Cristóbal Nápoles Fajardo and to the 95th birthday of the folk dance group Petit Dancé, from Las Tunas.
