Martha Petrona Jimenez's works will embellish Convention Center in Camaguey

Camaguey- The triptych "Advent", authored by the prominent ceramist and painter Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez, will become part of the heritage of Santa Cecilia Convention Center in the city of Camaguey. Of the three works, one was donated by the artist to the referred cultural institution.

"Connoted by an excellent expressive enunciation, is qualified the triptych of the remarkable artist Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez. It is composed of three-dimensional large pieces, the focus of a poetic projection, and an assented workmanship. "Advent", as it has been called by the artist, is a system, a way that unites in concept the aesthetic prominence that each painting holds", as said Yaniel said Perez Guerra, curator and specialist in Visual Arts.

This proposal is conceived in three movements, in three different parts. Each one is different from the shape, style and color treatment, but in their aesthetic set  they are in the same discursive line. They are equidistant works according to plastic quality; and they are independent, in terms of composition, but their languages move in similar orbit by the fact of being based on the same content. 

The specialist also said that "Advent" is certainly a laudable delivery, authentic, especially prepared in a time of unquestionable creative maturity. It is therefore a very brave proposal, pulsing the dimension of an artist with exemplary probity of art.

The Santa Cecilia Convention Center, formerly building of the Popular Meritorious Society of Santa Cecilia, is located near the Church of Our Lady of La Merced and the Birthplace Museum of Ignacio Agramonte. Currently it is subordinated to the Office of the Historian of the City (OHCC).

This building was designed to give the Popular Society of Santa Cecilia a place for meetings and other social actions. According to specialized literature in history of architecture, it is one of the best examples of the eclectic style in this city, with remarkable classicist ornamentation inside and outside.
