Cochabamba, Bolivia. — Simón I. Patiño Foundation is presenting a comprehensive exhibit by Uruguay-born artist, Beatriz Oggero until October 26, 2014. The elegant venue, Portales Palace Exhibition Center in Cochabamba, Bolivia where this event is taking place, currently displays a beautiful garden outdoors, and a garden of colorful and delicate textile works inside.
Beatriz was director of CETU Textile Center in Uruguay, and has had multiple exhibitions in many countries. She studied weaving with Maestro Ernesto Aroztegui in Montevideo, and later started working in sprang and tricot technique on her own. Says she:
“…For a contemporary textile artist, sometimes it’s difficult to show our work solo due to the time it takes to stage it. Therefore, we end up participating in collective shows.
One of my works, ‘Color Transparencies,’ was selected to participate in the 6th WTA Biennial: AIR 2011 in Mexico. Now I changed its name, because since then it has grown width and lengthwise in shadows and colors… —Beatriz Oggero.”
