Ivonne speaks about her work:
"I would tend to say that my first love affair was with a crayon and a white piece of paper.  Ever since I can remember, picking up a pen, crayon or colored pencil and letting my brain waver with thoughts superf



Yiddish Wisdom Box

Wood box, carved and painted.  I spent the better part of my childhood growing up on Miami Beach with a lot of Jewish and Yiddish influences.  This is in honor of those years and all the amazing culture nuances I picked up. Needless to say, they fare well with my Cuban roots.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.

Editorial Ultramar Renamed Editorial ArtesMiami

December 19, 2019

With the December 2019 publication of the poetry collection La floresta interminable: poetas de Miami, the hitherto known Editorial Ultramar assumes a new name, Editorial ArtesMiami, which unifies it with the parent institution that sponsors it: ArtesMiami, Inc.

It is not the first time that Dr. Aida Levitan, Ph.D., founder and president of the organization that supports and promotes Hispanic artists and cultural organizations, makes changes in her institution. In 1995, Dr. Levitan created Hispanic Events, Inc., to produce the Fair of Seville in Miami and the Fair of Spain. A decade later the organization was renamed ArtesMiami, Inc. It then created a publishing division, named Editorial Ultramar, and published several books by leading Miami Hispanic poets. The new name Editorial ArtesMiami maintains the same commitment to publish the work of new and established poets who reside in Miami.

Among the books published under the Editorial Ultramar label were: Poesía viva by Rodrigo de la Luz (2003), La ciudad de la unidad posible, anthology of 32 poets (2009), Hialeah Haikus (in Spanglish) by Alex H. Fumero and Marco Ramírez, with the voices of young poets (2009), In 2011 The City of Possible Unity was published in English. Mio mundo and La luz que se prolonga, by Rodrigo de la Luz (respectively in 2010 and 2012), Convergencia by Judit Arvesu (2012), Testigo de la noche by Jenisset Rivero (2014), El silencio y la furia by Lilliam Moro (2017), and  Jungle Fables/Poemas de la Jungla, in English and Spanish by Gustavo Novoa (2018). With its new name, Editorial ArtesMiami recently published La floresta interminable: poetas de Miami, a poetry collection in Spanish under the care of Luis de la Paz in December 2019.

 The ArtesMiami, Inc. institution, through its president and other donors, makes donations totaling $100,000 in cash and in-kind services to cultural and artistic institutions and periodically awards the ArtesMiami Lydia Cabrera Award, recognizing those who have contributed to the development of South Florida as a cultural center. Among those who have been honored with the award are Gloria Leal, Luis de la Paz, Carlos Alberto Montaner, Olga Connor, Nat Chediak and Mitchell Kaplan.
