As one gallery door closes, another one opens. Moremen-Moloney Contemporary has just opened in Butchertown. The gallery, owned by art collector Susan Moremen and interior designer Susan Moloney Byrd, is focusing on emerging and established national and international artists. “Collecting art should not be intimidating or confusing,” they wrote in a release, “[and we] want to expand the selection of contemporary art available locally.” The gallery’s first exhibition is “Cuban Art: Influence and Articulation.” The 20 pieces on display were curated by local Cuban artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco and Latin American art historian Yarima Hernandez. They chose to showcase the work of Maikel Dominguez, Lisyanet Rodgriguez and Yovani Caise.
