AG is pleased to present a project long developed by us: Alzueta Gallery’s Artists Residency (AGAR).
Starting this year in July, we are initiating an artist residency program in the Empordà, near the Costa Brava. Right next to our gallery in the countryside, Palau de Casavells.
A house for each artist, located in a wonderful setting in the Catalan countryside; a 500m industrial building to work in, in the center of La Bisbal; contacts with collectors and studio visits, will complete the program of activities in our residencies.Each year six artists will have access to the program, three by invitation and three by competition.
In October we will open the process of receiving projects to select next year’s artists. (Exact information about this will be available very soon).
We want to bring our exhibition project closer to artists from the 5 continents, we want them to be able to exchange experiences and projects with our current artists, we want to help produce and create the art of our time.We hope that the Alzueta Gallery – Artists Residency program will be one of the elements of articulation of our gallery in the international contemporary art scene.
Enrich R. takes over the Residency space to create a series of big format paintings. Through the use of modulation and materiality, he aims to reach a poetic and naked essence.
In June 2021 Maru Quiñonero worked on new pieces which will be exhibited in September at the Turó Park gallery.
Through October into November of 2021, Aythamy’s gestural paintings filled the residency studio, creating in it an enveloping dimension built through his powerful strokes.
Through the month of September of 2021 Guim Tió, known for his mastery in color and color mixing, worked on new canvasses.
Known for his big format paintings, the British artist worked in new artworks through the month of July of 2021.
