About the upcoming Orishas of Cuba Exhibition on July 22, 2016 |6 PM
After 2 years of working with a Cuban emissary Alberto Torres representing me in Cuba, our effort to bring 4 complete series of paintings by Alberto Piloto Pedroso to the USA have been successful. Over 40 paintings and hundreds of woodblock prints created in the last 30 years of the artist career will be displayed at The Box Gallery from July 22 through August 30th, 2016.
The Orishas of Cuba: The Saints of the Santeria Religion is an introduction to Cuba's African Diaspora and it's impact on the culture. I invite you to attend and enjoy the work while listening to one of Cuba's most celebrated violin performers, Ernesto D' Marquez live.

West Palm Beach-The Box Gallery will be presenting “ Las Orishas de Cuba” an exhibition of paintings and woodblocks by Cuban artist, Alberto Piloto Pedroso accompanied by a violin performance by Ernesto D’ Marquez at 7 p.m. opens with a reception on Friday, July 22, 2016 at 6 p.m.
The exhibition includes over 40 paintings and hundreds of woodblock prints created in the last 30 years of Piloto Pedroso’s career as a visual artist.
Pedroso juggled a dual career as a ballet dancer for Fernando Alonso’s Ballet Company and as a visual artist in Camaguey, Cuba until he suffered and injury that ended one career and skyrocketed the other internationally.
Piloto’s unique use of hypodermic needles to create accents and textures on his canvases has brought him much recognition among many collectors.
Ernesto D'Marquez is a violinist, composer and producer.
Marquez’ most recent performances include: Invitational performance at the Moulin Rouge, on Champs-Elysees in Paris, France. for Princess Stephanie of Monaco and a regional show/direction of the "Aguilas del Teide" park in the Canary Islands in Tenerife, Spain.
