The Petroglyphs of the Orosí Volcano
The Hidden Messages of Ancestral and Contemporary Art
Selected works from the collective exhibit "Petroglyphs of the Orosi Volcano" opend Saturday, September 29th at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery. Organized by artists Carlos Hiller and Rebeca Alvarado Soto, a group of 25 leading artists have studied and researched these artifacts and were inspired to transform them into visual arts. Recreating original interpretations, and developing new interpretations, the artists hope to perpetually document these relics, which are becoming endangered, and are not easily seen by the Costa Rican communities and tourists. Participating artists include: Fernando Carballo, Otto Apuy, Florencia Urbina, Emanuel Rodríguez, Leda Astorga, Ana Elena Fernández, Aurelio Vidor, Carlos Hiller, Roberto Lizano, Fabio Herrera, Mario Maffioli, Claudio Vidor, José Jackson Guadamuz, Rebeca Alvarado Soto, Jonathan Torres, Shih Chang Yang, Angel Lara, Karen Clachar, Juan Carlos Ruiz, Norma Varela, and Gabriela García.
