The Organization of American States (OAS) today inaugurated an exposition of art and paintings from Peru, which was opened by the current Chair of the Permanent Council and Representative of Peru to the OAS, Walter Albán, with the attendance of the OAS Secretary General, José Miguel Insulza, and several representatives of the member states of the Organization.

"Art has always been a way to express a personal vision on what is happening during the time and in the world surrounding the artist. The paintings of Peru during the Viceroyalty, a manifestation of cultural syncretism forged during this period, is no exception," said Ambassador Albán about the exhibition that will be on display for a week at the OAS.

The exhibition of Peruvian art is a collection of paintings, sculptures and handicrafts from nine contemporary Peruvian artists who continue to practice the techniques inherited from the colonial era. The exhibition will be on display until Friday, November 15, and during the month of December will be transferred to the Embassy of Peru in Washington, DC.
