In Cómpeta the 11th Art Walk will take place on Saturday 20th, Sunday 21st and Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th of April, 2019.
If you love art, you don't want to miss it! Discover the beautiful village, while 38 international artists representing 9 different nationalities will show their work at various venues.
Cómpeta is only an hour's drive from Malága and if you do not have your own transport, there is public transport from both Malaga and Nerja to the village.
You are welcome to participate in workshops to improve your own artistic skills. This year there is a raku firing, papermaking and printmaking workshop and a German artist will demonstrate how to make clay portraits. If you like to book a workshop, check the website.
Visitors do have the opportunity to see the artists at work and to meet them personally. One can admire their exhibited works of art: paintings, drawings, textile art, photographic art, mixed media work, video-projections, ceramics, bronze, wood, stone and steel sculptures.
This year we're happy to announce new activities! On Saturday morning there is a meditation ceremony. On Sunday afternoon you are invited to a storytelling event. And the Art Walk welcomes 4 Dutch students of the Arnhem Theatre School! The 'Art-Walkers' will 'move' in the streets of Cómpeta, submerging the village in creative vibes. Let yourself be carried away by positive energy and be open to new encounters!
On top of that every day you can enjoy exceptional live music.
This year the Art Walk booked great professional bands, every day 1 or 2 gigs in town. The musicians live in this area, and come from various countries like; Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Poland and the UK. Some names of the bands that will perform: Aire Flamenco, Flor-de-lis, Los Alquimistas, Maika and the Grajos, Duo Masque and Espabelgajazz.
The village has many charming and proper accommodation options and good restaurants. Booking a night can certainly be worthwhile!
The event is being organized for the 6th consecutive time by Dutch artist and gallery owner Lieuwke Loth and a team of involved volunteers.
We warmly welcome you to visit Cómpeta to experience a great day!
