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.
