Synopsis

In this letter, the Puerto Rican graphic artist, Lorenzo Homar, writes about developing the first portfolio and the objectives of the Taller Experimental de Artes Gráficas [Experimental Graphic Arts Workshop] at the Museo de Arte Moderno La Tertulia [La Tertulia Museum of Modern Art] in Cali, Colombia (TEAGC). Homar recommends establishing different groups of Colombian artists for each portfolio, stating that is not always necessary to use “la crema” [the cream] of the country[’s artists]. Based on his experience, Homar comments on the need for a strategy to improve the operations of TEAGC. This would include separating the roles of workshop director and administrator. On the plus side, Homar points out some of the TEAGC accomplishments: [most importantly,] a portfolio that includes the works of Colombian artists such as María de la Paz Jaramillo and Enrique Grau. He also thanks the individuals who have contributed to the workshop’s success.
