The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors is a prestigious institution from the moment of his birth.
Many of its founders were born in Seville and had a clear link with the city and it is unnecessary to discuss the close relationship they have always maintained Madrid, the city where its headquarters are located, with Sevilla and its artistic and cultural circles.
Thus the AEPE and Sevilla have always been united by history and by an invisible umbilical cord that connected and still connects artists.
Over 105 years, there have been many partners who have shaped Seville deeds of renown in the Spanish painting and sculpture and even international scene.
This link is what has led us to consider the real presence of the AEPE in Seville, with the completion of an exhibition of paintings and sculptures whose works will be carefully selected to collect a sample reaches a prestigious and serve presentation in historic Spanish Society of Painters and Sculptors Association through quality.
What’s AEPE Seville’s been very great artists of universal fame. Without going any further, one of our illustrious Presidents José Villegas Cordero, was born in Seville.
But many of our partners, recognized and protected from veteran painters working from Madrid and whose idea would mention the importance of the group in the AEPE, had a close relationship with the Andalusian capital.
Historically, Madrid and Sevilla have shared the same vocation for painting and sculpture, for excellence in organizing and exhibitions and offer the best visitors and satisfy the most discerning art lovers.
In Madrid, formed by a melting pot of residents born outside of the city, it is known that the link with the city of Seville is being strengthened day by day through artistic and cultural activities that share.
With this exhibition we have entitled SEVILLArt, we further strengthen the relationship between Seville and the capital, in an initiative that expresses the role of civil society in Sevilla recognition as an important appointment today’s art and creation.
The channel linking Madrid and Seville, the bridge linking the two cities, is art. We want to enrich this symbiosis by undertaking this major exhibition of contemporary art that collect works of the greatest partners AEPE and many other artists who have a special relationship with the city of Seville.
Contemporary art to collect the samples witness the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors being developed in Madrid and many other cities scattered throughout the country.
