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.

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.
