Despite the adverse weather, and as has always been the case that the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors inaugurates an exhibition at the Casa de Vacas del Retiro, on several occasions it was necessary to close the access to the Center, due to the excess of capacity, opening the same as he was evicting, which gives an idea of ​​the tremendous success and great expectation that always raises the Autumn Salon in Madrid.
The presentation of the act was in charge of the Secretary General of the AEPE, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, who addressed those present to remember that “the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors has 109 years of history. Thanks to calls such as the one that brings us together today, we are still serving years. From the Board of Directors we only want to thank partners, friends, general public, sponsor, collaborators and institutions, your full support for our continued work for the benefit of art and artists. Since 1910, 109 years later, we continue to make culture. To all, thank you very much. ”
He explained later that this year and for the first time, the Board of Directors had agreed to invite Chinese artists to participate, thus fostering a very important cultural exchange, thanking the assistance of the prestigious sculptor Dong Yang, especially from Shanghai to this 86th Autumn Hall.

Afterwards, and as it has been traditional, the honorary award given annually by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors was presented at the opening ceremony. The Secretary General requested the rise to the stage of journalist, writer and Planeta Prize, Javier Sierra, proceeding to read the designation:
“The Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, meeting in ordinary session on June 18, 2019, has unanimously agreed to grant the title of SOCIO DE HONOR to Javier Sierra, whose collaboration and close friendship with the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors is becoming stronger and more committed.
“Journalist and writer, whose human profile surpasses the professional; man of integrity, simple, human, helpful, humble, attentive, whose smile triggers unusual diplomacies, and who like himself likes to describe himself, has the job of curious.
In recognition of his friendship and exemplarity, his enormous prestige and for having contributed in a relevant way to the significance of our entity, appreciating the activities that the association promotes and responding to the foundational objectives of fostering relations between the art world and the creation.
As a sign of our gratitude for their continued support, accompaniment and complicity in the work of this Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, and in recognition of their trajectory in the field of research and dissemination of art, highlighting the contribution that with their works He has managed to bring the world of art closer to millions of readers around the world.

That millions of people discover through their pen wonderful works of art under a new vision, is the great legacy that we thank today through this appointment that prides not only our entity, our Partners and friends, but the artists from all over the world. world.
It is in this way that we would like to thank you for pushing us to look for the soul of each artist through his works and making art a window to the invisible, to the truly valuable that the human being harbors.
For all this, we are pleased to name Javier Sierra, Honorary Member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors. ”

Afterwards, the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, addressed the attendees in which he thanked the work of the Jury, the collaborating institutions, Maxam and its Foundation, as well as all the artists who make the contest possible. He also wanted to highlight the work of his Board of Directors, making special mention of the continuous, constant and always effective work of the General Secretary, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, which he described as the authentic “alma mater” of the centenary entity.
It was at that time when, outside of any protocol, he proceeded to read an Addendum to the Minutes of the meeting of the Board of Directors on June 18, 2019, in which it is explained that taking advantage of an absence of the General Secretary of the entity, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, responsible for raising the official minutes of the session, and with the unanimity of the members of the Board, it was agreed to distinguish Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez with the title of PERPETUAL SECRETARY OF THE SPANISH ASSOCIATION OF PAINTS AND SCULPTORS, in recognition to his excellent and unstoppable work and dedication to the entity.
We believe that it is fair to recognize the work of those people who are exceptional and essential in the art world, people who make real the saying that success always precedes work.
All the partners enjoy that success thanks to the attitude and work of those who make us bigger every day as an institution and ensure that day by day is attended not only diligently, but correctly and in a gratifying way. That is why this institution is better every day and provides an image of seriousness and prestige that, as I said, benefits everyone.
Placing a centennial entity of the first order in the 21st century has been an important challenge that our Secretary General has amply achieved in a work model that not only is the most successful, but that more than meets and exceeds the expectations generated in this regard. .
Modernization, transparency and attention and closeness to the needs of the associates have been an unwritten rule with which it has managed to awaken the spirit of our entity and thus contribute to the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors has developed as a diversified institution and open to the outside, until it becomes a modern and prosperous reality.
But in addition, preserving the history and heritage of the entity has been a priority in the work of Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, who is carrying out through the Historical Archive “Bernardino de Pantorba”, a project that has crossed borders and makes us captain the research work on the history of art in Spain in the 20th century.
Its involvement is also leading us to recover the memory of the first artists of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and to be present, in this way, in the most important cultural events celebrated in Spain for this reason.
In the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors we have the honor of having magnificent artists, with exemplary people who have achieved success with a lot of work, dedication and talent.
And one of them is Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, journalist, Director of the Gazette of Fine Arts, researcher, art historian, member of the Spanish Association of Art Critics but, above all, a magnificent person of overwhelming personality, who is of justice recognize and applaud his special dedication and dedication, his good work, full of commitment and honesty, his charisma, authenticity and talent.
The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors is increasingly prestigious and great because it knows how to recognize those who have a special talent and feel committed to making their work an engine for the expansion of that talent.
That is why Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez is a good portrait of the entity we want, with values ​​and that values ​​work, the desire to improve and the shared effort. It is the portrait of those people who fight every day for art, for artists, for culture and who do it also, investing a time, effort and a totally altruistic will and that must be recognized,
An entity is worthy of admiration when its members are too and when it treats those admirable people as they deserve. That is why we have the obligation to recognize this merit and in this way the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors wants to do it on behalf of all its partners, because making our entity better is a matter for everyone. Only in this way do we achieve that the best years of the artistic history of Spain are those that lie ahead, those that remain to be lived and those that remain to be written.

And so we signed it in Madrid, on June 18, 2019, the rest of the members of the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, keeping this resolution secret until the delivery of the distinction, which will take place within the framework of the Opening ceremony of the 86th Autumn Salon held at the Casa del Vacas of Madrid’s Parque del Retiro on November 7, 2019.
Excited and visibly surprised, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez picked up a plaque from the President and with the emotion of the moment, she was only able to thank everyone for the immense honor that the appointment entails, since in the entire history of the centenary entity, only There has been a Perpetual Secretary whose memory draws on countless historical accounts of the AEPE.

“Reaching the 86th edition of a renowned event such as the Salon de Otoño, says José Gabriel Astudillo, President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, is a triumph in itself, since no other contest in Spain treasures that age, nor a list of names such as the one that the institution has gathered all these years, names that are already part of the history of art such as Picasso, Alberti, Benlliure, the Benedito brothers, Benjamín Palencia, Vázquez Díaz “…
The 1st Autumn Salon of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors was born in 1920 and since its inception seeks the promotion of new values ​​in a line of innovative culture, that is, does not seek a display of awards that involve an economic endowment, but a excellence that transforms into the dissemination of the work and the artist, and that, according to José Gabriel Astudillo, means not endowing the awards economically, but being creative and channeling those selected and awarded on the difficult path of artistic creation.

The jury of the award, which will be made up of prestigious people in the fields of criticism, art history and artistic activity, will be chaired by the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, acting as Secretary of the same Maria Dolores Barreda Perez, Secretary General of the AEPE, will make a selection of the works presented, from which will come the winners, which will be exhibited in the Casa de Vacas of the Retiro Park in Madrid between October 31 and on November 24, 2019. The winners will be announced on November 7, at the moment of the jury’s decision, awards ceremony and opening of the exhibition.
Throughout these last 6 years, the Salon de Otoño has become a traditional event within the Spanish art scene, a must in terms of novelties, trends and new contemporary plastic proposals, as well as a showcase for the best painting and current sculpture.
Each year the artists have the opportunity to present their new creations and opt for an accredited Prize that includes the edition of a catalog, the exhibition of their pictorial work and the knowledge that it has been selected by a highly qualified and prestigious jury .

Despite the adverse weather, and as always happens when the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors opens an exhibition at the Casa de Vacas del Retiro, on several occasions had to close access to the Center, due to excess capacity, opening the same as it was being evicted, which gives an idea of ​​the tremendous success and great expectation that the Autumn Salon always raises in Madrid.

The presentation of the event was the responsibility of the Secretary General of the AEPE, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, who addressed the audience to remember that “the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors treasures 108 years of history. Thanks to calls like the one that brings us together today, we continue to celebrate years. From the Board of Directors we only want to thank partners, friends, the general public, sponsor, collaborators and institutions, your total support to our continuous work for the benefit of art and artists. Since 1910, 108 years later, we continue to do culture. To all, thank you very much. ”

Afterwards, and as it has been traditional, at the inauguration ceremony the honorary award was given annually by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors. The General Secretary requested the ascent to the stage of the Codina family as a whole, and so did Mª Antonia del Amo and Mª Luisa and Miguel Ángel Codina, proceeding to read the designation:

The President of the AEPE, José Gabriel Astudillo López, presented the title of Honorary Member to Mª Antonia del Amo and Mª Luisa and Miguel Ángel Codina, who addressed some kind words of thanks in which they said they were very honored for the honor received and tremendously united to a century-old institution such as AEPE, with whom they are collaborating so closely and with great success.

The Autumn Salon of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, is the event that marks the artistic trend of the city of Madrid. It is also the oldest and most prestigious artistic call of those held in Spain and in the words of José Gabriel Astudillo López, President of the AEPE, “at the Salon de Otoño there are institutions such as the City Council of Tres Cantos, through its prestigious Sala Baluarte, because they understand that it is a contest in which the quality of the selected and awarded works, proves an expository proposal like the one that forms the magnificent sample that we inaugurated “.

For their part, the artists thanked the municipal officials for their work in support of the art they are doing and wanted to recognize the efforts made by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors every day, for maintaining prestigious activities such as the Autumn Salon or the Queen Sofia Award, next to be called too.

Mariana Álvarez Enrique

Mariana’s work has a strong social content. He talks to us about difficult lives, and he wants us to look at them, so we do not miss out. It forces us to look, but without acrimony (hardness) In fact, and although it is showing us the misery and the scarcity, it always leaves a door open to beauty.

His paintings are a portrait of human diversity and everyday life. This is appreciated in their naturalness: they are a reflection of the day to day. In them, the people themselves speak, tell their story, happy many times, despite their poverty.

Inés San Miguel González

the work of Inés San Miguel González is of an abstract dye in which soft colors and firm and studied strokes predominate and where there are always references to people whose expressiveness, together with the very conception of the work, never leaves the viewer indifferent.

Olive Belinchón Married

The works of Oliva Belinchón present a multiple vision of the receiver, that is, they simulate the multiplicity of looks at the same time and from different angles on the part of the receiver. However, often the abstract is barely perceptible and other times, on the other hand, it is more complete and remarkable because his works do not seek perfection in representation and refuse to reflect the outside world.

Margarita Gámez Cornejo

Margarita Gámez has used any pretext to make plastic. For that reason in its trajectory they can exist landscapes, personages, bodegones, heads, etc. The result is your look at the world, your unique response. Your opinion with soul, what is expressionism? In the painting of Margarita Gámez there are no formulas, there is life. Degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University, she was awarded a scholarship by the Landscape Chair in Segovia.

The opening ceremony of the exhibition, which will remain open until November 26, will be attended by different personalities from the world of arts and letters, as well as sponsors and members of the Jury, who will deliver the awards.
It is noteworthy the enormous effort being made by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors to make the traditional Salon of Autumn a benchmark in Spanish artistic life, and as José Gabriel Astudillo comments, “for our institution has been a great triumph to achieve such a high level of participation and with such quality, and it has been a great success, and a remarkable achievement, to achieve such a reliable decision guaranteed by a jury composed of such important and representative figures from the art world in Spain. ”
“The Salón de Otoño is a call to which artists come running away from selfishness, immodesty and adulation, because it is a unique artistic manifestation because it is of a breadth of judgment, a nobility and a lack of interest that, will not hit understand the majority of the public and even the artists themselves, “says Astudillo, as” it is not a matter of winning an economic prize, it is a reward that every artist seeks, for the pleasure of enjoying one of his prestigious awards. ”
As Astudillo assures us, the main thing about the Salón de Otoño “is the discovery of the young values ​​and the possibility that gives us our call to be visible before the specialized critic and public opinion in general, being a platform of discovery of new promises, spirit with which was born the Hall of Autumn and with which it endures today “.
The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors works in a line of innovative culture, that is to say, it does not look for a display of prizes that suppose an economic endowment, but an excellence that becomes a diffusion of the work and the artist, and that, as he confesses the President of the AEPE, José Gabriel Astudillo, does not endow the prizes financially, but rather be creative and channel the selected and awarded in the difficult path of artistic creation.
This is manifested in the way art is understood in a society, acquiring a commitment of support and new opportunities to those who can be seen through the Autumn Fair, enhancing their artistic project in a way that supports artists with resources in the that bets clearly and forcefully by his work.
The Autumn Fair is sponsored by the Maxam Foundation, which at the opening ceremony will also present the traditional calendar of the former Spanish Union of Explosives (UEE), and for which historical memories of posters such as that of Romero of Torres, Cecilio Plá or Manuel Benedito or the most modern of Canogar, Genovés, Eduardo Arroyo or Urculo.
Recognizing talent is just what entities like INTERESARTE TV, Tritoma Gestión Cultural, the City Council of Getafe, Codina Escultura, Sala Baluarte, Santiago de Santiago and the Spanish Association of Watercolorists, who join in this new edition of the Salón de Otoño together to the City Council of Madrid, which will showcase the works selected and awarded in the House of Cows of the Madrid Park Retiro from 27 October to 27 November next.

In this way the AEPE tries to emulate the first Autumn Salons, in which they were programmed all kinds of cultural activities and not only related to the world of Fine Arts.
For the first time in addition, and as a result of the collaboration between Down Madrid and the historic AEPE, the Medal of Painting Down Madrid will also be awarded to one of its artists, which is a clear example of inclusion of this group in the world of fine arts, so that the winner will see his work exhibited at Casa de Vacas along with the rest of professional and novice artists.
