Oct. 2018 Featured Artist - Tatiana Varela
Posted on 10/09/2018

The CH Arts Council Featured artist for October 2018 is Tatiana Varela. Tatiana was born in Colombia and immigrated to the United States 20 years ago.

40 years ago, Tatiana took up Batik, an Indonesian discipline involving the production of dyeing colored patterns using beeswax onto a canvass.

Varela’s patterns depict the flora and fauna of her native South America, with beautiful images of plants, flowers, and especially tropical birds.

“I really love my birds,” says Tatiana. “The Batik art is difficult and a challenge, but I love doing it.”

Come on down to City Hall during October to see these impressive works from Tatiana Varela.
