Columbian Born Artist to Debut at An Open Invitation’s Petit Gallery
Esperanza Gallego was born in Colombia S.A. It was there that she first picked up a paintbrush and taught herself to paint. The beautiful views of the country’s mountainous region are what first inspired her paintings. The emerald green of its mountains, the rainbow of fruits, flowers, and vegetation have been on many occasions the subject of her work.
Through the years, she has lived in various cities of theUnited States, and has traveled throughout many parts of the world. “I find that my surroundings are the source of my inspirations. At times it’s the breathtaking colors of New England’s fall foliage, the incredible flowers ofButchartGardens, orCalifornia’s beautiful coastline.
“I have always admired Georgia O’Keeffe’s gorgeous flowers, her lush powerful paintings, and nature’s beauty — the reason I paint.”
Please come, meet, and welcome Esperanza to the gallery on Thursday, Oct. 4, from 5 to 7 p.m. Her work will be on display through January 1, 2013.
