Ibiza has inspired artists and photographers for generations. Many attribute the island's artistic allure to the beautiful Mediterranean light that produces some of the most spectacular sunsets, others to its multitude of stunning vistas and peaceful scenery; either way it is unsurprising that so many artists call the island home having moved here permanently after a visit.
A few years ago the island's artists came together and established the Art Club of Ibiza and each year the institute publishes a guide featuring works as well as directions to artists studios or galleries scattered across the island - La Ruta del Arte. This year however will be the first year that there will be an exhibition to accompany the release of the much anticipated guide.
Located in the Congress Palace in Santa Eulalie, close to some of our exclusive villas to rent on Ibiza, the exhibition will feature works from the current crop of island artists, covering all disciplines from painting to photography to sculpture. The exhibition will run from the 22nd May - 31st May (17.00 - 21.00). If you unfortunately can't make the exhibition this year you will still be able to see many of the artists showcase their works at the regular Art Sundays (Domingo del Arte), which takes place at various locations throughout the year. And of course you will be able to get your hands on an Art Club of Ibiza guide to find out where your favourite artists are and arrange a visit from your Ibiza villa.
For those thinking of visiting the island later in the season, on the second of August the island will host the 6th annual 'Art on the Catwalk', a contest featuring wearable art. This year's theme is Lunatic Fiction which should make for some interesting entries. But for a more casual meeting with the artists you can visit the Restaurante Cala Nova on a Wednesday night, here the clubs artists meet, share stories and generally have a chat and a drink.
