The Diversity of Cuba: Images of Today
As part of a college wide celebration of Cuban culture, the Mahoney Library Gallery presented work by three artists who have travelled and lived in Cuba.
Photographer Cris Gondak has explored lands and peoples over six continents and studied with masters Galen Rowell and Freeman Pattersen. The photos she showed are from a visit to Cuba in 2010.
Nelson E. Enríquez multimedia work explores themes of travel, frontiers, consumerism and material scarcity on and off the island of Cuba. He has exhibited widely in Cuba in both personal and collective exhibitions, and internationally in Germany and the US. He has received international awards from “Europa Abierta” and the Cuban National Festival of Ephemeral Sculpture.
Lisette Poole is a Cuban American photojournalist. She has collaborated with artist Nelson Enriquez and exhibits in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as Cuba.
Gilman Scholarship Recipient
SRJC student and Sonoma County native Elizabeth Gronberg started her college career as a Journalism major but swiftly changed to Art after her first drawing class. Together with her husband Trenton, they applied to the Florence Semester Abroad program and began searching for scholarships. In Elizabeth’s own words, “That’s when we found the Gilman Scholarship program. I applied and was awarded the scholarship. January 28th 2012 we jumped on a plane and started our 90 day adventure in Italy.” The Gilman Scholarship includes a requirement that students display the work they completed during their semester abroad. Mahoney Library featured Elizabeth’s paintings and drawings of Florence—an inspiration for all who aspire to this great program.
