Summer art exhibition Frigiliana 16 -31 August: Inspirational summer exhibition in Calle Real 98 in Frigiliana “Summerjoy/ Alegria de verano”.  This August Spanish artist Alberto Tarsicio and Dutch artist Lieuwke Loth exhibit their art in the exhibition space ‘Sala Real 98’.
Alberto Tarsicio will show oil painting impressions of the summertime sun illuminating the Spanish sea. He works with fluoride colors and is able to paint the waves and water in such a vibrant a way so that it feels like seawater splashes out of the canvas. He will also show a series of paintings of radiant flowers. Tarsicio was born and raised in the coastal area of Torre del Mar. Nowadays he is a professional artist showing his works locally and abroad. He set up a cultural centre ‘3Puertas’ in Torre del Mar. It began as a cultural place where people could gather, and it is now a solid base for exhibitions, live music and exchanges with artists from abroad. Tarsicio will be present in the exhibition in Frigiliana as well on some of the opening days.
Lieuwke Loth is a Dutch artist based in Competa’s natural park. She runs a gallery in the center of the mountain village; “Galeria Luz de la Vida.”
She loves to create art, organise art events, and connect with other creative souls. She has organised the “Art Walk” for six years, and in autumn she will have her fifth International Symposium “LUZ” in Competa. She makes bronze sculptures and also lasercut metal pieces. She also draws and paints fantastic and colorful pieces. She loves traveling for inspiration and the works she makes are influenced by the cultures and countries she has explored. In this exhibition she will show primarily lasercut wall pieces. Some she designed in Uzbekistan and Thailand, others in Spain. They are made out of stainless steel or cortensteel. The pieces can be hung outside and inside. With some light on the works, they get an extra dimension. And it can give a complete different feel to your living room, roof terrace, patio, or garden!
You might like to combine your visit to Frigiliana with the famous ‘3 Culturas Festival’ taking place the 22nd till 25th of August! A big music and cultural festival during the day & night. These days the gallery, owned by the town hall, is open as well. Get inspired by high quality art and a good atmosphere at Sala Real 98!
