Exhibit Dates: May 5 – July 12, 2016
Fundación Valentín de Madariaga
Av María Luisa, s/n, 41013 Sevilla, Spain

“Under the Andalusian Sky” shows the work of 10 international photographers. Cristina Iturrioz, Paul Jones, Mille Kalsmose-Hjelmborg, Fran Marti, Juan Mas-Baga, Friedrich Saller, Miguel Soler-Roig, Michou Von Beschwitz, Kim Weston and Philip Young. In 2014 they followed the route that Washington Irving made in Andalusia, nearly two centuries ago. This route runs through the steps followed in 1829 by the romantic American writer and diplomat, fascinated by the wealth and exoticism of the Spanish-Muslim culture.
After being exhibited in Tarragona, Barcelona and Ibiza, the show now arrives to Seville in its second year of scheduled tour around Spain, in museums and institutions.
We are getting ready for our Four Generations of Weston: Black and White at the Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento. If the attendance is anything like it was at the National Steinbeck Center in 2014, we are in for a great celebration. There will be 2 openings. One will be an Invitational Artists Reception on Friday April 8, 6-8:30PM. The second opening will be the public opening on Saturday April 9 5-9PM. It will coincide with 2nd Saturday Art Walk in downtown Sacramento, when galleries and local businesses host an open house evening starting from 5:30-9PM.
The Viewpoint Gallery will be showing the DVD “Growing up Weston” for a select group on Saturday afternoon.
We know many of you will not be able to attend so we wanted to share some of the photographs that will be in the show. Over 70 silver gelatin black and white photographs will be on view from Wednesday, April 6 to June 4, 2016. We hope you enjoy them and please make a point to come and say hello if you are coming to any of the openings or attending the Growing up Weston – film screening.
