Ulli Butz in Rodalquilar

One of Ulli’s sculptures

We were having a drink in Samambaia, Rodalquilar yesterday evening when we noticed a poster advertising an exhibition of sculptures by Ulli Butz which was opening at the little Centro Cultural in the main street of the village.

Screwed up woman?

We liked his rather quirky work made out of recycled bits and pieces when we saw it last Easter at the Castillo in Los Escullos and blogged about it then so we strolled  along to have a look.

The Centro Cultural does not have the same ambience as the Castillo but Ulli was enjoying himself playing with the two musicians who entertained the viewers and we were pleased to have the opportunity to see his work again.

Today we went to San Pedro. A couple of photos are on http://coloursofspain.wordpress.com


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
