ANA (Artists’ Network Alpujarra) is a community of artists, musicians and like minded creative people in the region of La Alpujarra, Granada, Andalucia, Spain, to promote artists of all kinds to make big ideas happen!
Where we meet
The online facebook group is a great resource but is by no means a substitute for gathering. ANA was born out of the desire to get artists to meet up regularly, usually in a bar, to have informal discussions, laughs and technical talks, along with the sharing of ideas, information and artwork. Since then it has grown and grown.
Who we are
ANA is a members only group for artists of all kinds. We are artist run, artist lead. Our first exhibition was at the end of 2016. If we have good ideas we do them, if we have bad ideas – they fizzle out. We are diverse with many talents, experience, skills, knowledge, ideas, not afraid of hard work to find solutions.
Until 2020 we were holding 3 large group shows a year, members also splintered off to make smaller shows as well. Now we have a dedicated space for our members at La fabrica in Lanjaron with a rolling exhibition programme throughout the year. We also hold exhibitions in other towns and villages as opportunities present themselves.
We are non-profit national association. All members pay a yearly subscription, this subscription is about commitment to the group firstly and we are always open to suggestions!
Gareth Lister is the president of the association. An artist, curator and gardener.
Aimee Fenech is our treasurer, member communications, technical assistant
Michael Alexander, secretary, exhibition consultant
Wes Somerville, coordinator
Fred Shively, public relations
Jane Kleinschmit, coordinator
