An exhibit of Elisabeth “Liz” Lorentzsen’s photography, Cuba: A Traveler’s Glimpse, will be on display at the Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd, from Nov. 2 - Nov. 30 during regular library hours of operation.
The opening reception will be held on Friday, Nov. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to stop by to meet the artist, view her photography and sample some Cuban food. Acoustic guitar music will be performed by Dan Vellone.
Lorentzsen holds a B.A. in fine arts and Spanish from the University of Minnesota. She received her master’s in teaching from SUNY Plattsburgh and has taught Spanish in Lowville for the last 20 years.
She has traveled extensively throughout the Spanish-speaking world, both with and without students, and in July of 2017 traveled with a group of language educators from all over Cuba for a week-long trip focusing on education, music, and culture. These photos represent some glimpses of Cuba from that week.
The photographs try and capture a snapshot of a country that is both changing, and yet in many ways also remains the same. Cuba is a fascinating and beautiful country, and Lorentzsen invites viewers to view the images and learn more about Cuba.
