Last Tuesday, March 10, 2020, at the La Lonja Hall, Casa del Reloj Cultural Center of the Municipal Board of Arganzuela, the inauguration ceremony and awards ceremony of the “110 AEPE” contest took place, which on the occasion of the celebration of the 110 years of the foundation of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, the President summoned last January.
The event was chaired by José Gabriel Astudillo López, President of the AEPE and was attended by the Vice President, Juan Manuel López-Reina, some of the members of the Board of Directors, such as Antonio Téllez de Peralta, Carmen Bonilla Carrasco, Fernando de Marta, Ana Martínez Córdoba, and Itziar Zabalza Murillo as well as a large group of exhibitors, partners and friends of the centenary entity.
José Gabriel Astudillo highlighted in his speech the importance of this call with the following words:
On April 15, 2020, the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors celebrates 110 years of an existence marked by the wealth of its greatest heritage: its partners.
And it is that for those of us who form this great family of partners of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, it is a real pride to be members of such an illustrious institution and to be an active part of an entity that continues to renew itself and interact with Spanish society through the World of artistic creation.
Many have been the artists who have allowed with their creative activity to vertebrate over time an association that has come to celebrate the century of existence with an eye on the future. Many are those who continue to make this path today.
These creators, of acclaimed and recognized talent and many others completely anonymous, are not ordinary people, but artists. Only in this way can their capacity for enthusiasm and vocational struggle, creative work and generosity be explained, which they have been wasting over time, and continue to contribute, in favor of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.
And there have also been men of culture, intellectuals and art-sensitive people who have served it from positions and management positions and still serve selflessly. All of them, anonymous and famous, are today worthy of applause and congratulations.
To fulfill a century of life is a milestone for any cultural entity. It is a great satisfaction to see the result left behind by more than one hundred and ten years of creativity, artistic innovation and dedication to society.
But the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors looks to the future, not forgetting the past, writing in the present the illusion of the challenge of continuing to grow the legacy received, of such extraordinary weight in the Spanish cultural world.
They are one hundred and ten years of corporate life at the service of art in Spain under the direction of the great masters of Spanish painting.
There are one hundred and ten years among which more than 9,000 artistic and cultural activities have been developed, more than eighty-six Autumn Rooms have been organized, an endless number of various exhibitions and the important Reina Sofía Prize for Painting and Sculpture, in order premeditated to give the youth that begins their struggle, an occasion to expose the fruit of their dreams and ambitions. Good proof of this is the coincidence that in these competitions all the great masters began their artistic career.
They are, as we say, one hundred and ten years of life oriented in the effort, in the enthusiasm and in the love to the true art of Spain, in which the city of Madrid has become, of the hand of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors , at the forefront of healthy, intelligent and ethical rebellions in this pilgrimage that is artistic life, through dreams and fulfilled realities. Therefore, our next dream is to strengthen an open image of the Association in artistic and cultural circles.
With this motive, in January I called you to make a great show in which to demonstrate the potential of the artists that formed this great family that of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.
An exhibition that under the title of 110. AEPE, we celebrate in the splendid Exhibition Hall of the Casa del Reloj Cultural Center of the district of Arganzuela, to whom from these lines I wish to thank your support and trust in this institution.
And to you, the artists, the partners that keep this magic alive, the miracle in the midst of the growing disappointment around the world of culture, that you make us vibrate in each new exhibition, that you work every day more to show us the best of you themselves and the extraordinary talent that characterizes you, congratulate you effusively and wish you all the best together with us.

The plastic tribute of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors
and the Diputación de Toledo to the famous Toledo Azarquiel
The cartoonist and painter from Jaén Francisco Carrillo González and the sculptor of Mota del Cuervo (Cuenca) Austión Tirado, have been the artists awarded the “Azarquiel” Medal in the painting and sculpture modalities respectively, of the “Nocturne” contest, called by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and the Diputación de Toledo on the occasion of the commemoration of the 990th anniversary of the birth of the Toledan Azarquiel, one of the most important Hispano-Arab astrologers and geographers whose fame and influence spread throughout Europe until the sixteenth century.
In addition, the consecrated sculptor Pedro Ania and the painters Sara Calderón and Mª José Sánchez de San Lorenzo, known artistically as “Mares”, have obtained an “Honorable Mention” for their work, which the Jury formed by Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, Ana Martínez, the prestigious painter and portraitist Ricardo Sanz, Itziar Zabalza Murillo, Enrique García Gómez, Mª Dolores de Ancos Alonso-Barajas and Enrique Toledo Brasal wanted to recognize in a special way.
In the opening ceremony of the exhibition “Nocturno” also took place the reading of the jury’s decision and the awards ceremony, which was chaired by the Vice President of the Diputación de Toledo, Maria Angeles Garcia Lopez, the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo López, the people in charge of the San Clemente Cultural Center, Dolores de Ancos Alonso-Barajas and Enrique Toledo, as well as the curator of the exhibition, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, General Secretary of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and Art Critic, and the coordinator Itziar Zabalza Murillo, renowned artistic professional who performs a job as cultural manager and the famous portraitist and member of the Jury, Ricardo Sanz.
The magnificent work that has led to the San Clemente Cultural Center, whose splendid facilities and high level of exhibition make this so different and particular show possible, make Toledo once again, the artistic center of Spain during the two months that the exhibition remains open.
At the San Clemente Cultural Center in Toledo and until next June 29, you can visit the exhibition that shows a total of 63 works of artists from all over Spain that has reinterpreted the views and skies of the city of Toledo adapting them to the “Nocturne” technique, so appropriate to the character being commemorated,
The result is an exhibition of works that flees from manidas, by repeated although one by magnificent and always imposing, views of the city, so identifying their idiosyncrasies, centered in the sky and the night of Toledo, and in that same sky it meant for Europe, for all the known world, almost 990 years ago.
The same sky of Toledo that inspired the impressive work of Azarquiel, is the protagonist of a sample that is also innovative, since with this theme, there have been exhibitions in Europe for decades.
All this way of seeing the sky so different from what we are used to, is what gives this show a totally contemporary and innovative art, which in addition to using the traditional artistic techniques for its creation, uses them to bring ideas to the deeper viewer and enhance their feelings of the Toledo sky.

Daimiel hosts from April 5 the exhibition “EL QUIJOTE DE SAMPER” with paintings by José Luis Samper, Salvador Samper and Sculptures of Austión Tirado, shows that he has visited several towns in La Mancha in recent years, the most recent in October last course in the Quixote Museum of Ciudad Real with a great success of public, surpassing the 4000 Visits. The inauguration that took place in the House of Culture of Daimiel was entertained on guitar by Miguel Herreros.
Although the work of José Luis Samper (1933-2006) was created shortly before the celebration of the fourth centenary of the publication of the first part of Don Quixote, it was in 2012, once the author died, that he would see for the first time the light before the public at the Municipal Museum of Alcázar de San Juan. Since then it has been exhibited in the Museum that bears the name of the artist, José Luis Samper Museum, in the Domus Artis Exhibition Hall, in the Quintanar Hermitage of the Order and the Don Quixote Museum in C.Real.
José Luis Samper
Jose Luis Samper favorite son of the town of Alcala de San Juan in La Mancha presents us a satirical Quixote with a certain manchego humor in contrast with the sobriety of realism that define his painting throughout the more than 50 years of artistic career. A total of 40 works, most of which are watercolors and in which the artist presents the adventures of our most famous ambassador from La Mancha and his faithful squire in his most important adventures throughout the two parts of such a famous literary work, and he does so with a youthful touch in most of the occasions and sometimes with the seriousness that the moment requires to capture, such as the death of Don Quixote or the return to his home after the defeat after the battle with the Knight of the White Moon. The separate exhibition of the artistic value of the artist’s brushstroke from La Mancha, has a didactic and pedagogical character since each work is accompanied by its corresponding text to place the viewer in the exact moment and chapter to which Samper wants to take us.
Along with the work of José Luis Samper, we can appreciate the work of Salvador Samper, son of the artist who pays homage to both Don Quixote and his father. Salvador Samper whose work has been exhibited in different European countries and has several prizes of young artists to his credit as well as the first prize in the International Painting Competition of Alcázar de San Juan, presents different images of the work of José Luis rendering a tribute to his teacher. A work with lots of color and full of both aesthetic and conceptual messages. We can see in this exhibition both generations with two very different visions of the personality of Don Quixote. Two styles, two messages, two realities, father and son showing their works once more to the delight of the spectator.
As a guest artist, we meet the sculptor Austión Tirado who participates for the second time in such a great proposal. The work of Austión Tirado consciously allows a journey through our interior from recognition, identity and understanding, and thus make the visitor participate, leading to an encounter with his true Self. The visitor will be immersed in a host of emotions and experiences that activate the language of the senses, as in the eternity of sound with a simple untouchable gesture, in the fragrance of the recognized or simply savoring each experience with the authenticity of ourselves. A work with a touch purely manchego with winks to the work of Cervantes.
The exhibition that has the patronage and organization of the City Council of Daimiel, the Provincial Council of Ciudad Real, Quinarte and the Cultural Association José Luis Samper Museum can be visited until April 30 in the Exhibition Hall of the House of Culture of Daimiel with a schedule of visits from 18.00 to 20.30 and holidays from 12.00 to 14.00

This is how R. Rodríguez explains:
From our body we are grammar, to activate our senses in each created space, inducing the path that leads to open the door to our mother tongue “origin” The INSTANT.
Consciously allows a journey through our interior from recognition, identity and understanding, and thus make the visitor participate, leading to an encounter with his true Self.
The visitor will be immersed in a host of emotions and experiences that activate the language of the senses, as in the eternity of sound with a simple untouchable gesture, in the fragrance of what is recognized or simply savoring each experience with the authenticity of ourselves.
Inducing the visitor to observe the exhibition from the only vision of truth that we have … that of the interior, a free reality that belongs to all of us equally.
The exhibition project revolves around the work of the sculptor Austion Tirado.
His artistic interest is especially for sculpture, very personal pieces that show his innermost being in each work.
Drawing on personal experiences to capture it and reach the public as much as possible.
“In the wonderful world of creation … There is nothing that moves me more, that caresses my spirit so deeply, as the knowledge that you have loved the created work from the beginning to the end “.
