Exhibition of Puerto Rico and Venezuela Artists
Pictured Antonio Perez Melero with Padre Diego Jaramillo.
On June 21, 2010 I had the honor of attending the exhibition of Artists from Puerto Rico and Venezuela at the Venezuela Mission to the United Nations in New York City. The exhibition was beautifully presented and I enjoyed viewing all the sculptures and paintings on display. The Venezuelan Artists represented were Alicia Meza, Arnaldo Moncada, Ernesto Leon, Nejia Vivas, Guillermo Barreto, John Kelly Aguilera and my good friend Antonio Perez Melero. Antonio was born in Spain but has spent most of his life living in Venezuela and has art studios in Spain, Venezuela and New York. The artists representing Puerto Rico were Antonio Martorell, Carmelo Sobrino, Elizam Escobar, Ramon Bulerin, Marcos Dimas, Fernando Salicruz, Jose Morales, Daniel Lind Ramos, Samuel Lind, Pablo Marcano Garcia, and Nitza Tufino.
Ambassador of Venezuela Jorge Valero made a speech about independence and also thanked all the artists who participated and all the special Dignitaries and Ambassadors from around the world who attended the event. I had a great time and enjoyed all. I am looking forward to more cultural art exhibitions in the future. A special thanks to the Venezuela Mission to the United Nations in New York and all the staff for creating such a great event. Congratulations to all the artists who participated and exhibited their work.
