The Patio de Luces hosts '200 Years of Almeria's Painting'
Until 4 November the people of Almeria can enjoy a selection of works by local artists.

The Patio de Luces continues to be the stage that houses the talent, colour and light of the painters who have shone with their own light in ‘200 years of Almeria’s Painting’. The exhibition project promoted by the Provincial Council and the Ibañez-Cosentino Foundation on the occasion of the Bicentenary of the Provincial Institution faces its third and final phase with the period 1975-2022.

Until 4 November the people of Almeria can enjoy a selection of works by artists such as Martín Pastor, Huecas, Rafael Gadea, Francisco Egea, Lola Valls, Pedro Segura Cano, Pepe Bernal, Toña Gómez, Paco de la Torre, Melchor Peropadre, Andrés García Ibáñez and Ignacio Martín Cuadrado.

The deputy for Culture and Cinema, Almudena Morales, and the curator of the exhibition, Juan Manuel Martín Robles, met at the launch of this last phase of the exhibition accompanied by some of the authors who are exhibiting the more than 40 selected works.

Almudena Morales stressed that ‘200 years of Almeria Painting (1822-2022)’ is a historical document of extraordinary value: “Throughout these three exhibitions we have been able to learn about the history of Almeria painting, an exciting journey from the nineteenth century to the present day: from a budding School of Arts, the vision of society over these two hundred years, the most important pictorial movements, the most admired and recognised artists. Until we reach the exhibition we have before us today, works and artists of the highest level, known and recognised nationally and internationally. To each of the artists, thank you”.

He also highlighted the value of the Museo Ibáñez as a museum of reference for modern Spanish art in Andalusia. Its museum collections, the production of high quality exhibitions and the publications it has produced, endorse it as one of the driving forces of cultural dissemination in the province.

The curator of the exhibition also emphasised that it is a pleasure to collaborate with the first Andalusian institution to support the Museo Casa Ibáñez and the Ibañez-Cosentino Foundation: the Provincial Council.

“Today we have mixed feelings. Sadness and joy to inaugurate the last part of an exhibition that has been difficult because of the selection of the works among so many artists from Almería. This last part is the most difficult because if there is one thing that Almeria’s art has shown, it is the explosion it experienced after the Indalianos”, he explained.

200 years of Almerian Painting’ consists of a cycle of three collective exhibitions through which to show, in a brief summary for which works by the most relevant and representative Almerian artists of each stage have been selected, the evolution of the plastic arts (painting, engraving and drawing) in Almeria over the last two centuries.
