Last night we opened my second mini-exhibition of the summer in Cerro Negro, Las Negras. We remember when Jose Garcia opened this bar 1n 1988 as we were here then. It was certainly the trendiest bar in the Cabo de Gata at that time.
Nothing much has changed since then. Jose looks a bit more grizzled now, as he must be over 50, but he has a new young wife, with baby on the way, and the bar still attracts the younger set, plays their music and stays open late.
The bar has been closed for a couple of days for redecorating and Jose has been asking me for some time about exhibiting paintings during the summer. I was a bit apprehensive about it being the right place, but with the freshly painted walls and Digby’s well organised hanging, I thought they looked quite good.
In the exhibition are a number of paintings that have not been on show to the public before so please go and have a look.
