Newspaper Adelante welcomes exhibition of engravings and colographies by Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez

Camaguey - An exhibition of engravings and colographies of the artist Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez has been inaugurated at the newspaper Adelante, and pays homage to the celebration of the birth of the famous poetess Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda.

The Provincial Book and Literature Center, the Acana Publishing House and the Adelante newspaper decided to pay homage to the writer, with the tactical agreement that the artist Martha Jimenez is an excellent choice for this, said the specialist Juan Carlos Mejias Ruiz, of the Provincial Council of the Fine Arts.

Martha, who already harvests the fruits of several years of hard work, and has the recognition of the artistic world inside and outside the country, has made a career with her most habitual figurations. Her work includes women where you can guess a casualness that makes them unique. Perhaps these sensual women, of postures and sweet and daring expressions, could also be this type of woman who tried to defend Tula in her work.

This homage also extends to those women who, in essence, have defended their right to fight for what they want and have bequeathed - in the space and time that belongs to them - an artistic universe that has become heritage of Cuba and the humanity.
