TV to Cuba, a digital story for the New Year

TV to Cuba Shopping in Cuba is limited to what is in the store. No online shopping is available- yet. The emails flow from friends on the island asking us to purchase household items, art supplies, and medicines for ailing family members, even rubber bands, Scotch tape or pencils, things we have in abundance here […]

A new look for the website.

Rebuilding a website is similar to restoring an old house. The foundation needs shoring up, new additions attached to the structure, windows added and mistakes are made and learned from. NO dust, dirt, or the whine of saws, and no country music. I’ve got a great contractor RJ Sakai, who has stabilized the site, making it run […]

Successful invasion Cuban printmakers.

This has been a marvelous fall with visiting Cuban printmakers and book artists: Ibrahim Miranda, Jaime Rodriguez (Jaime’s prints are in the foreground), Janette Brossard, Norberto Marrero and Hanoi Perez. None of us imagined last January (let alone 10 years ago) they would ever have the possibility to visit Red Trillium Press.

Suenos de la Bienal

I wish I could be at the 11th Havana Biennial this May. Instead, I am here in Western Mass dreaming of art in Cuba. The theme for the Biennial this year is: ‘Artistic Practices and the Social Imaginary’. Cuban Art News has couple of great articles about the 115 invited artists and 10 curatorial projects […]
