Sandy Stolzman’s photographs highlight the contradictions on the streets in Cuba in her series 'Beauty and Sadness'. The work was shown last Fall at Rasco Art Gallery in Philadelphia as part of a city-wide celebration of Hispanic Heritage month.
It was the first show by a non-Hispanic artist at the gallery, which specializes in the work of Latin American artists. “Sandy is not Latin American but she approached RACSO with a Latin American subject matter worth our consideration. We are delighted to host this exhibition during Hispanic Heritage month and hope to have more guest artists to expand on our motto of being a bridge to the Latin American art spirit, and in this case, to one of it’s individualistic cultures – Cuba,” remarked gallerist Oscar Villamil.
