Former museum director presents a double show

This is ‘Swimmers,’ acrylic on canvas

The former director of the Museum de Arte Costarricense has a double show in Liberia starting this weekend.

She is Florencia Urbina Crespos, who also is an internationally known artist. Her work will be featured at the Daniel Oduber airport in Liberia starting Friday. There is a formal opening of her show Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery five kilometers west of the airport.

The title of the show is “Boom Goes the Tropics,” which feature what the gallery calls intense tropical works. The show runs until Jan. 10.

Ms. Urbina will be present at the opening Saturday, said the gallery, which said one of her hallmarks is transforming light and color into three-dimensional shapes. Ms. Urbina’s uninhibited style and her use of powerful colors and strong lines brings a new perspective to her revitalized neo-figurative work, said the gallery.

Ms. Urbina, who was born in Costa Rica, studied art in Costa Rica, the United States and Indonesia. Her works are included in many national and international collections. Among the awards she has won is the Costa Rican Premio Nacional de Pintura, said the gallery.

More information is available from the gallery at 2667-0592 or 8386-6872.
