Cómpeta's art at Easter

  • Around 40 artists exhibit their work at this year's ArtWalk

Cómpeta will be showing off its abundant visual art again this Easter week. From Wednesday 12th, until Sunday 16th (with the exception of Good Friday, 14th) the annual Art Walk will be taking place.

Nearly 40 new and ArtWalk regulars will be displaying their work in different galleries and houses around the town.

This year’s exhibiting artists include: Jaime Anden, Alberto Tarcicio and Beatriz Constan from Spain.

Anna Barbara Lenzin from Switzerland will be making a mosaic on the wall of the ‘Luz de la Vida’ gallery and Dutch artist Merel Holleboom is also returning. Merel calls her often-very-large works in metal ‘poetic machines,’ as she says, “they invite you to take part in their movement or to experience them.”

A number of workshops will be on offer; in Galeria Centro de Bellas Artes you can attend the workshop ‘Monoprint with Gelli and Acryl’ given by Sally Hirst, while Daan van Neervenwill be holding a course in bronze casting. Children are also encouraged to take part in a colouring workshop with German artist, Eva Maria Bochmeyer.

There will be live music starting with a performance by singer-song writer Keith James, who is back in Cómpeta for a second year to perform songs by Leonard Cohen.
