The Hidden Garden Art Gallery in Liberia inaugurates a show Saturday at 5 p.m. of Christian Porras, called theminstrel Guanacasteco because he plays the guitar as well as paints."Painting, like the guitar, has formed a creative character in Christian, allowing him depths into technique and discipline, which provided opportunities to create works that have been exhibited and published in different venues, nationally and in countries like Canada, Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia.
"The inaugural opening includes a live concert and admission is free. Porras uses acrylics on canvas. The show will run until April 19. The gallery is 5 kilometers west of Liberia international airport.
Said artist Juan Carlos Ruiz: "Christian Porras, a minstrel Guanacasteco, painter and singer of images whether with guitar or paintbrush, wanders from the heights of Guanacaste and iscarried away by the causes of unwritten stories and people from the melody of the mountains to the shores of the ocean. He paints what he sees, sees what he paints, and tells a story from his perspective as he perceives the environment, the magic of Guanacaste, whether by brush stroke or musical note."
