opening: March 28th from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.

The Pan American Art Gallery presents “Cuban Photography –
Revolutionary to Contemporary” from March 29th – May 17th with an opening
reception on March 28th from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. This extraordinary collection of
photographs features the early work of Joaquin Blez; works from the
beginning of the Cuban revolution by Osvaldo Salas, Raul Corrales and
Roberto Salas; contemporary works by René Peña, José Manuel Fors,
Marta Maria Perez Bravo, Juan Carlos Alom, Cirenaica Moreira, Eduardo
Hernandez and Julian Martí.

Our exhibit begins with the work of Joaquin Blez in the 1920’s
covering the art-nouveau period in Cuba. We then feature the work of the
photographers of the Cuban Revolution, known as “Cuban Epic
Photography”, a period that transformed the purpose and role of photography, stepping
away from traditional photojournalism by reflecting the feeling and
sentiments of the period. Moving into the contemporary realm, we feature
a breadth of work from the mid nineties to the present; the contemporary
works showcase a variety of techniques (from collages to reverse
negatives) and an equally diverse subject matter, from self portraiture
to the manipulation and combination of images to tell an intricate story.

The Pan American Art Gallery is located in the Turtle Creek Neighborhood
of Dallas at 3303 Lee Parkway, Suite 101. The Gallery is open
Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m. -6 p.m. and Saturday noon – 6 p.m. Call

Specializing in art from the Caribbean basin, the Pan American Art
Gallery features avant-garde and contemporary Cuban works, as well as
contemporary and folk art from Haiti and Jamaica.
