The artist is Rebeca Alvarado Soto, who was born in Costa Rica. She has been based in Guanacaste for five years. In addition to her work as an artist, she is a professional dancer and psychologist. She has a postgraduate degree in education. Her art combines the most varied techniques, working with beautiful textures that complement the multitudes of color in her works, said a spokesperson for the Hidden Garden Art Gallery, where the show will open Saturday.
In all there are 15 works being exhibited. The gallery said that the artist is inspired by literature, psychoanalysis and her passion of ballet and that her works reflect this. Painting is part of her daily life, having grown up with art, and is a creative act she needs to live and express imagination, the gallery said.
Ms. Soto’s exhibition contains works in oils, watercolor, acrylic, chalk, charcoal and other mixed media. The opening is from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the gallery 5 kilometers west of the Daniel Oduber airport in Liberia.
