The theme Formas de la transparencia: las posibilidades emocionales del vidrio takes 25 glass works of Costa Rican artist Celita Ulate. The works are both two and three-dimensional and are representations of the different states of mind a person goes through daily, said the cultural center.
“Given the quality of transparency and fragility of this medium, expressing emotions in glass enriches the artistic task,” said Ms. Ulate. “This is very similar to the emotional states that we all experience in life, we feel fragile and the emotion shows in us, although we want to hide them.”
Ms. Ulate has showcased her work in galleries across Costa Rica, such as the Museo de Arte Costarricense, the Galería Nacional and the Museo de los Niños. She also has exhibited internationally in Lithuania and Oregon, United States.
Centro Cultural e Historico José Figueres is located on the north side of the Parroquia de San Ramón, Alajuela.
The exhibition will be available until Jan. 30, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Entrance is free.
