A very special art exhibition has opened in the town of San Sebastian to showcase how the local artist community is embracing the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

 

The exhibit features more than 50 pieces of beautiful art with most interpreting and capturing the conquest and human spirit of the 2015 Race.

 

As it says in the exhibition catalogue: “Ten resident artist have undertaken the task of artistically interpreting the possible reasons why a group of people of all different ages, sexes, religious beliefs, professions and nationalities, decide to risk their lives in pursuit of an idea that many would believe to be risky, if not completely crazy!”

 

Titled “EL VIAJE INTERIOR” (or “The Interior Journey”) the exhibition is placed in the main entrance lobby of the town’s ferry terminal. The ten artists have used Sculpture (Pedro Montanez, Pedro Negrin, Damian Plasencia and Ina Stromberg), Photography (Eduardo Castro and Iraultza Darias), Poetry (Beatriz Vazquez Lorenzo) and Paintings (Alfonso Anderiz, Guido Kolitscher and Izik Lambez).

 

On Monday 12th December, all rowers, artists and race personnel will attend a special evening celebration at the exhibit, hosted by the town of San Sebastian!
