This exhibition will be a showcase for new members alongside existing ones. All the work on display will be either new or unseen here in Órgiva. It will be a really fresh show with a variety of practice.
There was no theme set for this exhibition and yet somehow all of the artists have similar preoccupations brought about no doubt from working in this beautiful part of Andalusia. Themes of nature and landscape, the human figure and spiritual meditations on art and life are what tie these works together in what we hope will be a stimulating exhibition.
We would be delighted to welcome you and would appreciate your help in making this a success for the artists, some of whom are exhibiting for the very first time. Remember as well that 10% from any sales in the exhibition will go to the charity Proyecto Está ?
You will also have the opportunity to experience the newly formed band: “Otra Banda” on the opening night. Asma is the songwriter and is on vocals, René plays keyboard, Franco is on guitar and Gustavo plays percussion. Their music is described as, “soul, with a jazzy flavour”.

Proyecto Está is a non-profit organisation for people of all ages with support needs, such as an intellectual disability and autism etc. Special holidays are organised where all kind of activities can be chosen. The person with the disability is taken care of so the rest of the family or care givers can have a relaxed holiday.
Proyecto ESTÁ also gives self-reliance training to young people and adults. To interns and volunteers they offer a pleasant workplace with the necessary training and support.
There is a special members day, on the last Sunday of every month, with fun activities for kids and parents.
