We’ve done it again! Our ‘Tierra Frágil’ Opening Night exhibition was a great success. Visitors flocked in to view the art, even though the temperature outside was hotter than an oven, it all seemed quite apt.

Exciting and stimulating, but with that underlying message of how fragile our tiny blue planet is and how much we are contributing to our possible own demise.
Yes, the exhibition had a more sombre feel to what we might normally show, with heart wrenching imagery, inside-out toy animals, lost and forgotten on the shore, pictures of our own detritus, of what we are losing but there were also images of hope and rejuvenation. – Hilly Barmby
There was great excitement from our new colleagues and we are very happy to say that Maryse Alen was one of the first to sell one of her stunning paintings, followed by Emma Plunkett and her art assemblage. Michael Alexander has sold prints of his work and more was to follow.
We have decided as a group that 10% of all work sold will be donated to a tree reforestation charity that works across Spain – The Trillion Tree Campaign.
We hope you have and will continue to enjoy the variety and sheer talent that is Artists’ Network Alpujarra.
There are paintings, photos, ceramics, sculptures, slide shows celebrating the member’s artwork and even cards to take away as souvenirs.
