Survey of Contemporary Cuban Artists
Jacqueline Zerquera Tejedor was born in Havana, Cuba in 1965 and studied art at the acclaimed San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts in Havana from where she graduated in 1992.
Her first international exposure came during that same year, when she participated in an international exhibition staged in Mexico City. A year later her work was included in the groundbreaking exhibition of Cuban Women Painters held at the Cuban Studies Center in New York and in 1995 her work was exhibited at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana.
Since then, Zerquera Tejedor has consistently exhibited both in Cuba and internationally, most notably in Venezuela, Spain, and throughout the Caribbean. In 1998-1999 her work traveled to the Extremeño Museum, Pérez Comendador Museum and the San Francisco Cultural Complex, all in Extremadura, Spain, as part of a cultural exhibition focused on Havana’s famed Malecón.
Like many trained Cuban artists, Zerquera Tejedor is adept at many genres of art, and her work was recently included in the 5th Digital Art Salon in Havana, Cuba and her fine arts photography was also included several months ago in the Cuba Now! Exhibition held at the Charles Sumner Museum and Archives in Washington, DC.
This exhibition was Jacqueline Zerquera Tejedor's debut in Maryland and her second showing in the Greater Washington area. Her original artwork is available through the Fraser Gallery of Washington, DC and Bethesda, Maryland.
