Artists of Costa Rica

The work that is presented on this on-line exhibit is created by Costa Rican artists. Their work will be displayed here in a permanent exhibit. The spirit of this show is to allow the artist to reach the viewer directly, with no intermediaries. We hope that this medium will be the catalyst to create direct contact.
