HAVANA._The 11th National “Art for Mothers” Crafts Fair, which exhibits the resources of the Cuban Cultural Goods Fund (CCGF) at the capital’s Pabexpo exhibition ground, has something to offer for everyone.
According to the CCGF director, Jorge Alfonso, the event, running until the 27th of May, stands out for its national products and designs that replace imports on the island.
He said that amid such products, both national and foreign visitors to the fair can appreciate footwear, office clothing, and ceramic restoration materials.
The public can also find ceramic objects, fabrics, wooden handcrafts, horse-riding equipment, dolls, ornamental plants, and fine arts.
In halls A, B, and C of the Pabexpo in Havana’s municipality of Playa, 261 individuals are exhibiting finely manufactured quality products at 19 different stands.
Artex, Egrem, Icaic, Genesis, Coral Negro, and National Book Distribution companies, among other institutions, are also present at the fair.
Alfonso highlighted the ever improving quality of products and the creators’ ability to come up with worthy solutions in spite of the scarcity of material.
Additional to the “Art for Mothers” craft fair celebrated during the month of May, these works are also shown at other events every year such as the International Craft Fair and the annual summer “Arte en la Rampa” festival.
All these crafts-related events reaffirm the important role of Cuban crafts in the socialization of artistic goods.Share on FB Share on TT
