We are really honoured to receive this message of support from Frances de la Tour:
“I was so pleased to learn about Presente!’s forthcoming London art exhibition of Cuban artists such as Adislen Reyes. What a wonderful opportunity for art lovers here in Britain to see such paintings ‘in the flesh’ – the voice of Cuba’s future.”
Frances de la Tour is supporting the exhibition of contemporary art from Cuba which will run from 6-29 October 2016 at London’s GX Gallery. ¡PRESENTE! aims to give 25 Cuban artists a rare opportunity to display their work in the UK, and profits from artwork sales will fund materials for Cuba’s art schools via UK charity Music Fund for Cuba.
Please support the appeal to bring young rising star of Cuban art, Adislén Reyes, to Britain for the show and to participate in an associated programme of events.
Deadline 20 March 2016.
