Twenty-five years ago, an American couple purchased thousands of hectares of land in Chile and Argentina and brought in expert help to restore the land to its pristine glory. The land is now being handed back to local governments, as reported in El País.

The Conservation Land Trust, together with American philanthropist Peter Buckley, purchased roughly 208,000 acres (84,200 hectares) along Chile’s coast south of Chaiten in 1994. Now Corcovado National Park, Chile’s sixth largest, covers approximately 726,000 acres and contains some eighty-two lakes, many ringed with ancient forests where pumas haunt the shadows. The bay, once the lair of pirates, is now proposed to become Chile’s first marine sanctuary, assuring a continuity of protection for wildlife from ocean bottom to mountain peaks.

Jacqueline Unanue, Chilean artist, opens a show at St. Asaph Gallery

 09/20/2016 - 17:16

As spectators filed in on September 16, the windows of the round gallery stayed open to let in a dying summer breeze, inviting the confusion of Jacqueline Unanue’s recently hung paintings with more windows. Though they may not be windows in a traditional sense, these selected works from two new series do serve a similar function: they let in the light and colors of a space external to us.

Abre exposición de Jacqueline Unanue, artista chilena, en St. Asaph Gallery

 09/20/2016 - 16:34

Mientras el aula redonda de St. Asaph Gallery se llenaba con espectadores, sus ventanas quedaban abiertas a las brisas del verano moribundo, detalle que al primero me permitió confundir las pinturas recién colgadas entre ellas con unas ventanas más. Y aunque no sean ventanas de la forma tradicional, las obras de las dos series nuevas de Jacqueline Unanue sí sirven una función similar: nos traen la luz y los colores de un espacio exterior.
