Hello from La Galeria Periana….
Welcome to my first blog… this is so new to me and I am very excited to be sat here writing it. It´s a fulfilling experience being able to showcase magnificent pieces of art by local and international artists in my gallery and I believe there is something here for everyone.
With the picturesque setting of Villa Olivia, looking out over manicured gardens, I am surrounded by exotic plants and flowers and captivated by their hypnotic perfumes. Set beneath silken swathes of champagne coloured skies. My view to the lake beyond is an ever changing backdrop and is punctuated only by the flight of a dove or the occasional eagle. My mind is immersed listening to the birdsong interrupted by the spasmodic braying of a donkey or the tinkling of goats bells.
My aspiration was to provide a unique and different approach to the creation of a gallery. I realised there were many artists in the area but their opportunity to exhibit was limited. My quest to introduce new people to art and art to new people was to be my challenge. No dream too big no challenge too great. I am dedicated to introducing artists of international standing whilst supporting artists at the earlier stages of their careers. I believe that a collection of art represents an extension of one’s identity and that, whilst the internet will serve as an introduction, it will never take away the desire to experience art in its true form. After all art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time – quote by Thomas Merton.
La Galeria Periana is definitely unique in every way imaginable. The gallery is where visitors, artists, art lovers and collectors alike receive a big warm welcome. Amongst a relaxed atmosphere, you are free to sip a glass of wine or light refreshment whilst being able to browse at your leisure without pressure or intimidation to buy.
Over the forthcoming months I will be introducing a variety of different Artists to you all with a creative feel from their own personal angle. I would like to take you on an amazing journey where you can almost feel the visual inspiration of these amazing artist and empathise with their creative and enthusiastic work.
