Abstract art, modern realism, intricate patterns and peaceful landscapes mingled with haunting portraits of women, all painted right here in the Marina Alta. Visitors were taken aback by the variety and vigour on display. The eight artists were Sandi Goodwin, Susan Hankey, Frances Jones, Emma Jane Lawton, Particia Leon, Anna Martynovska, Marion Oprel and Jing Xu-Koprio.
The local branch of the European Union of Women Mujeres en Igualdad Marina Alta organised the exhibition, not only to celebrate the artists and their work but to remind us all that women in Europe and here in Spain still lack equal opportunities, suffer discrimination, poor employment conditions and, of course, gender violence.
Their next meeting is to celebrate their 70 Anniversary of being founded in Austria and 40 years ago in Madrid. Women from different countries will speak on the changes women have experienced in their original home. All welcome on May 22 at the Golf Club and Restaurant 10.30 for 11.00.
