Oregon’s Broderick Gallery presents an art exhibition entitled “The Young Cuban Master: Osailys Milián Avila.” The show features the 20-year-old Cuban artist (who goes by Osy) in her first solo show in the U. S.
Osy (pronounced Ossie) is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts of San Alejandro. She is currently studying at the Higher Institute of Art in Cuba and took first place in Passion for Freedom 2012, a groundbreaking exhibit on the subject of Liberty at Unit 24 Gallery, next to the Tate Modern in London.
“To say I am thrilled to be able to introduce Osy to our area is an understatement,” said gallery owner George Broderick. “At 20 years old she is already garnering respect from judges and art critics globally. Osy’s ability to impart important social issues visually is unmatched.”
Milián Avila will be in attendance at two receptions held in her honor and the public is invited.
Exhibit receptions will be held on Dec. 8 from 1–6 p.m. and on Dec. 9 from 1–6 p.m., and exhibition dates are Dec. 8–31, at the Broderick Gallery, 313 East B St., in Rainier.
Gallery hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. –5 p.m. and by appointment.
