Four experienced and imaginative AIA-Group artists join forces for this exhibition, which runs from 2nd to the 29th October at Galería Las Gemelas Restaurant, Calle Jacinto Benavente, Fuengirola, just down the road from the Bus Station, set back on the left hand side heading towards the sea.
Good art makes us look afresh at our shared world, helps us notice the detail of life in new ways and brings surprise and delight into our lives. It makes you feel good.
This work does just that, through the ambition and restless inventiveness, of artists who have the knack of turning the commonplace and the often overlooked into images and objects which shimmer with life and insight.
Don’t just trust this purple prose, - come and see it for yourself, and put some space, light and fun into your life!
The artists welcome the public to the opening of this exhibition from 15-17 hrs on Saturday 2nd October 2010 at the Galería Las Gemelas Restaurant.
Exhibition continues until 29th October. Opening hours: Monday – Friday 10-18 and Saturday 11-17
The AIA-group was formed 6 years ago. See www.aia-group.net or call Elaine Carlton, 952 93 99 64.
Les Damoiselle de Dublin by Roger Cummiskey.
Two leading AIA-Group artists, painters Margit Bjorklund from Sweden and group chairman Roger Cummiskey from Ireland, jointly exhibit a selection of their new works in the Galeria Lucia, Calle Maestra Ángeles Aspiazú, Fuengirola (by the 3 horse roundabout).
The exhibition runs from the 04-30 October daily between 12-4 and 7-11 pm, except Sundays when it is closed.
Gerrie Gran, the gallery owner said “Margit and Roger´s works bring a fresh look to this exhibition. The works are in complete contrast to each other and yet are in harmony. It is a delightful exhibition”.
Margit finds her inspiration in nature and translates her impressions and feelings into colour and form. With the help of oil paint she depicts on canvas the texture and multiple strong colors found in different flowers.
Roger continues the celebration of Summer with a selection of brightly colored abstract paintings.
The AIA-Group was formed six years ago by professional and dedicated visual artists from around the world, who are all living and working in Andalucía.

In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take, the relationships we were too scared to have and the decisions we waited too long to make.
There comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who doesn't, who never did and who always will.
So don't worry about the people from your past.
There's a reason they didn't make it to your future. So only send this to the people in your life who matter.
I just did!

Beckitts, Marbella presents Summer Sunshine, an exhibition of recent paintings by Roger Cummiskey on view until 30 Sept., 2009. Cummiskey’s new work uses abstract interpretation to highlight Summer time.
Roger Cummiskey’s use of drawing and painting on paper in watercolour is considered by many to be masterful. He “employs delicate lines that seem to touch the surface – just long enough to form the silhouette, record a bodily gesture, or suggest an emotional expression.” Neutral pigments become the backgrounds for such depictions, allowing the characters and the relationship that is established between them to suggest that the apparent banality of the situation is actually a platform to reflect on the realities of sameness and difference, through non-narrative moments void of spatial context. Earth elements reappear throughout his oeuvre in the form of objects, backgrounds, clothing or lack of it, insinuating the basic instincts of the Authors in their writings. In the words of the artist, “Sometimes the imaginary doubles as an ideal companion to the reading/re-reading of all or part of the Authors’ works in a modern day setting.”
Roger Cummiskey lives and works in Mijas Costa and Dublin. His latest solo exhibitions “A Stroll Thro’ Ulysses” include The Roxy ArtHouse Gallery, Edinburgh, The Airfield Trust Gallery, Dublin, 2004; He represented Ireland at The Florence Biennale in 2003 also at International exhibitions in Stockholm, London and New York in 1999 and 2000. His works are part of public and private collections in Europe, The United States, Japan and China. This is Roger Cummiskey’s third exhibition in Spain. He is President of the Andalusian International Artists Group in Spain.

I am a Dublin Watercolourist. I specialize in watercolor paintings, which take their themes and titles from the wanderings and writings of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and other Literary and Historical personalities. This has come from a lifelong interest in attempting to interpret in paintings what James Joyce et al., so eloquently wrote about our native city, Dublin.
I call my collections, “A Stroll Thro’ Ulysses - Bloomsday 100” and “The River Gods of Ireland”.
New, unique and creative ideas are constantly being added.
