London, Paris, New York, Motril!

I hope you have enjoyed the exhibition or if you can’t make it, that you can get an idea of what it was like through these photos and the video. Organising 50 local and international artists to come together in aid of Acompalia hospice charity, in the most beautiful setting, to show their art, wasn’t easy, I can tell you. But it had to be done! The architecture is the kind you normally only find in top city galleries. This 19th century refurbished Sugar Factory is a work of art in itself. The renovations were completed by architect Alberto Martinez, exactly 6 years to the day, of the opening of this exhibition.

On entering the building

Guests were greeted by a great cavern of luminous space, filled to the brim with gorgeous original art. Giant flags from UK artist Angus Watt, huge paintings from local Spanish artist José Manuel Haro, sculptures from Canadian artist, Wes Somerville. There were walk about actors in costumes by Niki Bee, with edible art lollies by LilyD. The brochure was for sale for a donation, three trapeze artists hung from the ceilings and were being sketched while the sublime music of acid jazz fusion from Toni Connolly and Luis Gomez filled every corner of the hall.
