Annotations

This text by F. Valladares notes the promising young artists participating in the III Exposición Nacional de Dibujo y Grabado held at the Facultad de Arquitectura y Urbanismo de la Universidad Central de Venezuela, Caracas. It discusses the importance of the event as one of the first major salons in the history of Venezuelan printmaking. The author provides valuable information on the work of Gladys Meneses (1938?2014) who was the winner of the Premio Roma at the XXIII Salón Oficial de Arte Anual Venezolano (Caracas), and was awarded a grant to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma. Regarding Meneses, Valladares states, “If there is one piece of advice for this young printmaker, it is not to stray from the positive and promising path she is on,” that is, he hopes that she lets her personality flow out and that novel experiences not alter her conception of work.
