Since 1963, the CINTAS Foundation, Inc. has awarded fellowships annually to creative artists of Cuban lineage residing outside of Cuba. The biennial competition and exhibition was held this year at the Americas Society Gallery in NYC was titled CINTAS: Foundation Visual Arts and Film Awards. It showcased the works of  Christian Curiel and Amalia Zarranz (who received the fellowship from the Cintas Foundation for their works in visual arts and film, respectively) and award finalists Felipe Dulzaides, Lilian Garcia-Roig, and Neraldo de la Paz (Guerra de la Paz) for visual arts and Orlando Rojas for filmmaking.

Three of my recent on-site painting groupings of the dense green Washington woods paintings were chosen for exhibition.

The jury was comprised of Gabriela Rangel of Americas Society, Julian Zugazagoitia of El Museo del Barrio, Sandra Antelo Suárez of TRANS Magazine, and David Kiehl of the Whitney Museum.
