webber gallery close up exhibitJune 7, 2016 — The College of Central Florida Webber Gallery presents “CloseUp: Eight Contemporary Cuban Artists,” July 7 through Aug. 19. An opening reception will be held Thursday, July 7, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Webber Center, 3001 S.W. College Road. The exhibit and opening ceremony are free to attend.  

Curated by artist Víctor Gómez, “CloseUp” features the work of artists Alberto Carol, Ivonne Ferrer, Lia Galletti, Ismael Gómez Peralta, Victor Gómez, Rafael López-Ramos, Aldo Menéndez and Aimee Pérez.

Gómez chose the artists based on their extraordinary artwork and common bond of friendship. Each work evokes naturalism and realism and is representative of Cuban artists living in Miami.

Artist Alberto Jorge Carol explained that during the creative process he “strives to create with freedom of the mind, freedom of the eye and freedom of the hand, producing art that is original, meaningful and masterfully executed.”

Webber Gallery summer hours, May 9 through July 31, are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery is closed Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and college-observed holidays.  Starting Aug. 1, the gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
