The winged ladies, shadowy forests and moonlit seas of self-taught Cuban artist Silvia Rivero’s paintings and altarpieces evoke a deep sense of history and recall the magic realism of Marc Chagall.
To celebrate her exhibition, Rivero’s husband, the Oscar-nominated composer José Maria Vitier (Strawberry & Chocolate), will present a brief musical performance as an introduction to the exhibition on November 7 at 5:30pm (preceding the opening) in the Helmerich Theater. Vitier is an icon in Cuba, combining the elegance of the classical tradition with the romance and pathos of Cuban folk melodies.
The exhibition and piano performance are free and open to the public.
