Leesburg, Virginia (April 5, 2022) – A new multimedia art exhibition by local artist Ligia Inra, “A Botanical Garden”, is available at the Thomas Balch Library.

Inra said his inspiration came from real-world experiences and personal stories. Since childhood, her sense of color came naturally and became a personal expression. Nature’s color palette in flora was her inspiration.

Mixed media art challenges her to go beyond the ordinary. His paintings possess a deep understanding of structure and space, seamlessly blending these elements into visual harmony. Ligia’s canvases engage the viewer as an active participant in her colorful journey.

Inra was born in Acapulco, Mexico, where she grew up surrounded by music, literature and art. She lived in New York for over 30 years, which gave her an even deeper appreciation for art. She has lived in Loudoun County for 20 years.

Inra’s work has been exhibited in local juried exhibitions including Art at The Mill, Artist in Middleburg, the Tryst Gallery, Waterford Art & Craft Fair and local libraries. It has also been part of private collections in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

This exhibition will be visible from April to June in the meeting room on the lower level of the library. Please call 703-737-7195 or email [email protected] for more information.

Ligia Inra will donate 50% of each purchase from this exhibit to LAWS Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services.
