Liz Chalfin and Sheldon Carroll traveled to Havana in November to conduct a workshop in Polyester Plate Lithography at the famous San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, one of the oldest art academies in the Americas. Their week-long workshop with young artists and their accomplished professors garnered a portfolio of prints that express a uniquely Cuban world view. Chalfin and Carroll will present a slide talk about their recent trip to Havana and visits with many contemporary Cuban printmakers. The talk will feature an in-depth look at the work of three exceptional Cuban artists: Anyelmaidelin Calzadilla, Osmeivy Ortega and Eduardo Hernandez Santos.
