Nitxdelart

A centuries old tradition has it that Felanitx cultivates a nice relationship with art and music. Think of artists such as Guillem Sagrera during the middle ages (1380-1456) or Miquel Barceló (1957) in the here and now, and think of musicians and composers such as Joan Baptista Aulí (1796-1869). Miquel Barceló is probably the best known contemporary artist born in Felanitx, but somehow town and artist do not seem to hit it off.

Last night, as every year in August, Felanitx celebrated a Nit de l’art (Night of the Art) as part of the town’s summer festivities and Festes de Sant Agustí. An endless array of art exhibitions and gallery openings as well as public performances of music of all types and for all tastes, made for a pleasant summer night out. Antoni Caimari Alomar’s Jove Ensemble de Música Contemporània de les Illes Balears (see photo) played some pleasant classical compositions as well as some contemporary pieces by no other than Californian minimalist, Terry Riley (1935). A great treat. Amongst the fine art, Felanitx artists Ferran Aguiló and Jaume Canet convinced with their professional technique and their artistic perceptiveness.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: August 20th, 2010. The time was 23:33:42.
