Tonight is the award ceremony and opening of the Modportrait 2016 at the Museo IAACC Pablo Serrano in Zaragoza, Spain. My painting Enchanted (shown above) will receive a Honorable Mention. The show will remain up until the end of July before it moves to the MEAM in Barcelona. A link to a nice article in Spanish about the show can here.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the event this evening. I would like to personally thank Jose Enrique Gonzalez, director of Galeria Artelibre, and jury for recognizing my picture. The Galerie Artelibre together with the MEAM under the leadership of Jose Manuel Infiesta have greatly contributed to the reawakening of a sincere appreciation of figurative art in Europe.
My painting shown above, Enchanted, was awarded an Honorable Mention in the traveling portrait show and competition, ModPortrait 2016. Sponsored by Galerie ArteLibre, the competition/show will first open at the Museo Pablo Serrano in Zaragoza, Spain on April 7th. It will then move the Museo MEAM in Barcelona where it opens on May 12th.
Galeria Artelibre has chosen to include me this year in their publication Arte y Libertad XI, a select collection of contemporary figurative artists. It is a handsome volume and my feature includes a bio and quality reproductions of my work.
My work can now be seen online at Galeria ArteLibre. Founded in 1999, it is a virtual gallery that promotes quality figurative art through its site, exhibitions and competitions. It hosts the ModPortrait Contest and regularly collaborates with the MEAM museum in Barcelona.
