Another local artist has show at Hidden Garden
Special to A.M. Costa Rica
"Extraordinary Talent" premieres Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., as Guanacaste Costa Rican artist Juan Carlos Ruiz opens his exhibit at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery.
With his impressionistic style, Ruiz combines elements of different worlds: the natural and the artificial, nature and civilization, to create a unique dimension to his artworks, gallery operators said. Ruiz studied with Juan Carlos Meana of the Universidad de Vigo de Pontevedra in Spain and has a bachelor's degree in fine arts from the Universidad de Costa Rica.
Gallery owner Greg Golojuch said he is thrilled with the talented artists that continue to join the gallery, now the largest in Guanacaste, with over 300 artworks comprised by more than 50 artists and that he will continue to strive to launch new exhibitions twice per month. The gallery is five kilometers west of the Daniel Oduber airport in Liberia on highway 21, and is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 to 3.
