Martha Jimenez and her expo "The Woman Without Neighbours" in Camaguey

The artist Martha Jimenez -a member of the artistic avant-garde and affiliated with the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba- will enable this Friday 18 the opportunity to enter another corner of her creation by opening her exhibition of serigraphy Entitled "The Woman Without Neighbours".

The "New Muse" Gallery, of the Julio Antonio Mella Provincial Library, will host 13 works conceived with this technique, another aspect of creation in the fruitful career of the artist, who awarded the Prize conferred by UNESCO, in the edition corresponding to the year 1997.

Without abandoning her usual treatment of themes and characters of deep popular roots, the proposal is also animated with ways of doing classic cuts, in what represents another attractive variant within her production.

It will be the first time that Jimenez puts her serigraphs to the consideration of the Cuban public, already appreciated in the fifth Edition of the International Symposium of Terracotta, realized in Turkey during last year. There she was recognized for the quality of her proposal with the award given by the jury of the event.

Graduated as Art Instructor in the specialty of the Fine Arts, towards the end of the 60's of the last century, and possessing a fertile endorsement as a teacher at different levels of artistic education in the territory, Martha was founder of the twenty-year-old Group Fidelio Ponce de Leon, made up of amateurs to the discipline in the territory and a workshop given to the children of the community where their work is located, in the vicinity of the Plaza del Carmen, in the capital city.

She shared these tasks with her work of creating ceramic pieces, paintings and sculptures of large format, located in several places of Camaguey. Her works integrate galleries and private collections in different parts of the world.

The opening of the exhibition "The Woman Without Neighbours" is integrated into the programs that take place in Camagüey, as a greet to the arrival of the Cuban Culture Day.
