As part of the celebration of Bolivia’s 197th independence anniversary, that South American nation’s embassy in Mexico opened an exhibit of 47 paintings by four female Bolivian artists at Mexico City’s Casa Milán Cultural Center on Friday, Aug. 26.

The collection, titled “Colores de la Vida, una Mirada Femenina” (“Colors of Life, a Feminine View”), include paintings by Claudia Balcázar from Cochabamba and Magenta Murillo, Catalina Salinas and Vane Salamanca Trepp  from La Paz.

All of the works reflect the artists’ visions of Bolivia’s rich history and ethnic diversity, with brilliant landscapes that reveal the entire palette of a chromatic circle.

The exhibit, which is open to the public free of charge, will remain on display at Casa Milán, located at Milán 41 in Colonia Juárez, through Saturday, Sept. 24.

Bolivia gained its independence from Spain on Aug. 6, 1825.
