A NEW art exhibition in Roquetas de Mar offers a fascinating insight into life in years gone by in Almeria.
‘Indalecio, a history of the 20th century’, features a collection of works by artist Carmen Pinteño, widely considered one of the best painters from Almeria of recent times.
Born in Huercal-Overa, the self-taught artist has very much followed in the footsteps of the Indaliano art movement created by Jesus de Perceval following the Civil War. There have been more than 100 individual exhibitions of her works all around Spain and various other countries, from France and Switzerland to the US and the Ivory Coast.
Roquetas Culture councillor Juan Jose Salvador described the exhibition at the Teatro Auditorio as an immersion in “the knowledge of the history of our land, of our roots and of our symbols of identity.”
The council said this is an “unpretentious” show, the works simple to understand, “with recognisable forms, and stories already heard.”
Indalecio, a history of the 20th century runs until March following the exhibition inauguration tomorrow, Friday, at 7.30pm.
