Art at The Villa

The Gallery at Hotel Villa San Ignacio presents the next art showcase called Art at The Villa, with an opening event on June 16 at 3pm. The artistic group Optimum Artis is displaying works from its members until July 2, 2016.  The Director of Culture from the Ministry of Culture and Youth, Mrs. Fresia Camacho, will be in charge of the opening speech.

Come by the Gallery to see a variety of techniques, shapes, and colors. We’ll have a prize drawing for opening night attendees, including a weekend for two at Sugar Beach, a romantic dinner at Pandora Restaurant, fine jewelry and more.

Optimum Artis – Latin for “the best of the arts” – was created by The Casa De Subastas de Costa Rica in 2015. The non-profit group is dedicated to the promotion of individual artists as well as an appreciation of the arts among the general public. In the past eight months the group has presented 24 times and has been recognized by the Ministry of Culture as well as other public and private institutions. There is no particular curator, “art is art” being the group’s core belief.
