THIRTY artists met in Albir last Saturday, October 24, to take part in the Tenth Painters’ Meeting.
This was organised by ArtAvant, with collaboration from the Alfaz town hall’s Culture department.
The aim was to allow participants of all ages to spend the day painting at the Albir Biblioplaya.
This year’s theme, Relacionarte, centred on the concept of openings and the connecting spaces between two zones, the organisers explained. The paintings will be exhibited at the Casa de Cultura in November.
Alfaz’s Culture councillor Manuel Casado – accompanied by councillors Rocio Guijarro, Martine Mertens and Luis Miguel Morant – visited the painters at work on Albir beach where they met ArtAvant’s president, Isabel Pedrola.
The meeting was not a competition, Pedrola explained, but an opportunity for the young and adults to enjoy painting outdoors in a friendly atmosphere.
ArtAvant, which was founded in 2007, is dedicated to encouraging creativity and mutual learning, while connecting artists from all branches of the arts at different levels of experience.
Together with organising talks, workshops and exhibitions, the association also holds art classes for adults and children at Alfaz’s Casa de Cultura from October to June.
