The art of Dora Duran
Dora Duran first recognized her talent as a painter in 1974. Since then, she's been passionate about her artwork, helping people see life through it. 1997 was the year that marked Dora Duran, all throughout her native country; the Dominican Republic, as an artist through a three day exhibition, consisting of twenty-seven paintings. The exhibition took place at the Dominican Republic Central Bank Club, in which reporters and local civilians attended. Soon after, Dora was invited to participate in local shows such as,Orientando al Consumidor, El Dia, and many more. Her story of struggle and triumph also appeared in many newspaper articles such as, El Diario Libre and El Nacional. In 2002, Dora carried out ten exhibitions, successfully networking, expanding her artwork to be acknowledged in the United States, displayed at The Hudson Artists Of NJ, Inc. Art Exhibit. Dora volunteered to teach art classes at a local Brooklyn, NY, elementary school, helping children bring out the artist within each one of them. Today, Dora Duran continues to strive for her ultimate goal; for all nations to recognize and relate to her artwork.
