Spirit of Cuba

Worship through Art: October Show.

In support of the Cuban Mission, our new art installation celebrates the vibes, traditions, colors and people of Cuba.

Artists on display include Maria Ortiz-Haynes, Debbie Bright and Shelly Augsbury. All three artists were touched by the spirit of the Cuban people, their rich culture and ability to experience joy and worship in the hardest circumstances.

Maria Ortiz-Haynes is originally from Patterson, New Jersey and is a proud resident of Tampa’s Ybor City. She is an accomplished mosaic artist. Her work is flavored by her family’s roots from Havana to Key West to Ybor City.

Debbie Bright is a self-taught artist, mentored by Judi Dazzio. Her paintings hang at the Dazzio Art Gallery and may be found in private and corporate collections.

Shelly Augsbury is an award-winning creative talent. Shelly has received over 30 international, national and regional awards for her creative talent from advertising to painting.
