The Alpujarra artists association, ANA will open its exhibition, Esperanza on Saturday the 30th of November, starting at 20.00h at the old town-hall building in Órgiva. The exhibition will run until the 21st of December.
The launch will feature refreshments and a chance to preview and purchase original works of art, as well as buy a selection of hand-crafted gifts and cards. The exhibition will subsequently open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 17.00 to 20.30 and Thursdays and Saturdays from 11.00 to 14.00.
Coordinated by the ANA committee and curated by Gareth Lister, the exhibition will feature a wide range of fresh artworks from the diverse ANA members, including: traditional paintings, photographs, 3D work and light installations.
Gareth Lister comments: “Hope, or ‘Esperanza’, as this show is titled, should be an expression of a desire to cherish anticipation. The creation of art is intrinsically hopeful. From the beginning of an idea, there is hope.
Through the first early stages and on to completion, hope. There is hope that the work will be well-received and appreciated.”
“There is hope, too, from the viewer – perhaps that the artist has achieved their hope. A hope that ‘I’, the viewer, can ‘understand’ or simply a hope to see more.”
“This show came about as a natural progression to our last exhibition, Tierra Frágil (fragile earth), in which many of our artists expressed the real and present danger to our world. There would be no expression unless we had hope that change is possible.”
ANA has held several successful exhibitions at the Old Town Hall, Órgiva, including Tierra Frágil in August, Old and New during Easter 2019 and Hot Winter Show at Christmas 2018.
