Once again the exhibition CervArtes, continues its cervantina route and stops in a completely quixotic and miller abolengo city, as is Campo de Criptana, because apart from its history and tourism that entails, has immense activity in the plane creativity and research into what we might call local history, art and culture.
I will speak briefly about it, because your extension does not give place.
The town has a large sample of 10 typical mills, some dating from the time when Don Quixote was written, which in turn makes the novel by Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote of Mancha en1615 became, in a true story following the publication of the first part of Don Quixote, precisely here ingenious hidalgo fought mills and this is contained in chapter VIII of the book.
Besides there are other monuments as the Church of the Assumption of the Counts of Cabezuelas, Church of the Convent of Discalced Carmelites, the Ermita de la Veracruz or Pósito Real where is this exhibition.
But besides its streets and whitewashed houses, their sockets or its doors in indigo blue, are pure poetry, where writers, poets, painters and sculptors are inspired. So much so that in this city there since 1974, a Municipal School of Art, which is in full swing and of course with painters range, which are so numerous that only appoint some, like Francisco Valbuena, Isidro Antequera, Jose Diaz, Aurelio Lopez Lourdes Arteaga, Andrés Escribano and José Manuel Cañas. Sculpture highlight Eloy Teno.
Not to mention the seventh art flat with Sara Montiel, Enrique Alarcón decorator or producer and writer Andrés Velasco. Apart from other fields such as musical with people like Luis Cobos, Arteaga and etc.
Such is the artistic activity in the city accompanied by a large number of artists from various branches, the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, entity created in 1910, with a very wide artistic and cultural activity, has not hesitated to bring this city and this unique historical and exhibition center, as is the Royal Granary building of the sixteenth century; the traveling exhibition “CervArtes” gathering with numerous different forms of representation as broad as artistic samples of that world is the idiosyncrasy of La Mancha and the vast field of inspiration as Cervantes, reflected in towns, buildings, characters or things.
The sample is based in principle on an event that created the entity in May last year and to commemorate the fourth centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes, and that is true in this year of 2016, where the theme was life the great writer and his literary work. It could compete partners entity of which were selected by a jury of people from the art world and criticism. 45 works by 45 Spanish artists were chosen and others settled in our country. Thus the present artistic shows that in it you can see variety of styles and trends, as well as formats and techniques. Without forgetting that this sample of “CervArtes” is represented worldwide on the Internet, as Google and the Ministry of Culture, have included it, along with other entities in the project “Roads of Cervantes”
Also I have to say that this exhibition will be present in many cities in our region. In principle it has been in Tomelloso, Valdepeñas, Alcazar de San Juan, Guadalajara, Puertollano, Socuéllamos, El Toboso, now here in Campo de Criptana and later in Guadalajara Provincial Council, Molina de Aragón and Cuenca.
Finally, thank the City Council and Department of Culture of Campo de Criptana, for your interest and to facilitate this exhibition is exposed in the city
