16 of the 28 artists exhibiting are ANA members. There will be 7 pop-up galleries spread over the picturesque town of Polopos. You’ll be able to see paintings hung in a ruin, sculptures in a building site, listen to poetry and music in the wine museum, talk to national and international artists and of course, support these artists by buying their work. There will be something for everyone and with so many things to fall in love with you won’t have to go home alone – if you don’t want to! ?
Saturday, August 3rd from 6 – 11 pm
The hosts of this art walk, Thysa y Wijnand (pictured below) are involved in a bigger project – their activities are being filmed to show on Dutch TV. It is a reality TV program called ‘Het Spaanse dorp’, which has been on TV since July, five nights a week for 40 minutes per episode on RTL, the biggest commercial broadcaster in the Netherlands.

Polopos pueblo is up high and has beautiful sea views. It is the municipality of Polopos and can be reached from two directions, either from Órgiva heading up towards the Sierra de Contraviesa or by the coast route, where you drive beyond Castel De Ferro, take the turn off for Castillo de Baños and take the GR-6204 at La Guapa and drive up.
