We love art and culture here at La Reserva Club, so we were really pleased to hear that a summer art exhibition was coming to Sotogrande this year. Brought to us by FLECHA, an association which organises art events in commercial spaces, this new exhibition is taking place in Sotogrande Port until 31st of August. It is organised to support Spanish contemporary art and showcase the work of 17 talented Spanish artists.
The Summer Gallery is 300m2 of quality modern art, boasting more than 100 original works. The art works include paintings, sculptures, photography and engraving and the pieces can be purchased from as little as 100€. It is being held in the El Mercado de Levante area of Sotogrande Port, where the Sunday Market takes place. The full address is, Ribera del Marlín, local C-22, La Marina, Sotogrande.
FLECHA aims to bring people closer to the work of living artists and make buying art achievable for all. Since it was founded in 1991, it has brought art to over 10 million people, given visibility to nearly 7,000 artists and helped them sell their works. They organise art exhibitions in commercial centres, have an online gallery, www.flecha.es which features more than 6,000 works of art and a permanent gallery in Madrid.
This is the first time that a FLECHA exhibition has come to Sotogrande and it is a great opportunity for residents and tourists to enjoy great art this summer. The gallery is open from 11am to 2pm and 6pm to 10pm every day of the week until the 31st of August. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the art, or purchase pieces for their collections, and support the Spanish art world. There is a wonderful selection of different artistic formats and its free to visit. Featured artists include the founder of FLECHA Jaelius, Antonio López, Curiá, Isabel Alonso Vega, Eduardo Query, Eduardo Vega de Seoane and Luis Gómez Macpherson.
This is just some of the contemporary art you can enjoy when you visit the Costa del Sol. You can also visit the studio of artist Osvaldo Lobalzo and view his permanent exhibition in Pueblo Nuevo de Guardiaro, just a few minutes’ drive away from the summer art exhibition. We’d also recommend a trip to Gibraltar to visit the three galleries they have there. In Marbella there are also several good galleries, including the Ralli Museum, which has the best collection of Latin American art in Europe. However, the cultural jewel in the Costa del Sol’s crown has to be Malaga, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. There are so many great galleries and museums in this cultural hub, that it’s hard to choose. Highlights include the CAC Malaga, the Malaga Pompidou Centre and the Picasso Museum.

Enjoy the art!
