3rd Day of Christmas: Collecting Osmeivy Ortega Pacheco's Cuban Tradition

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Gregory Disney-Britton hold's today's third day of Christmas gift a limited edition print by Osmeivy Ortega Pacheco
On the 3rd Day of Christmas, my true-love gave to me, a limited-edition print by Osmeivy Ortega Pacheco. Born in Havana, Cuba in 1980, he is one of the island's great emerging printmakers. These highly detailed black-and-white linocuts remind us of the anatomical drawings of Michelangelo, printed on the cotton fabric used to mop floors in Cuba. Ortega is represented by Childs Gallery in Boston and Gallery on Greene in Key West. Today's gift is from Exquisite Corpse, a suite of eighteen lithographs by visiting artists at the Tamarind Institute.
