4th International Art Symposium LUZ in Cómpeta, 13– 20 October 2018

Lieuwke Loth, member of the Costa del Arte Collective and her Galeria Luz de la Vida are organising a vibrant dynamic art event in Cómpeta! This will be a great event to visit for you, with fantastic artists from many countries and a very interesting program for the visitors!!!

The Artists and the Symposium

10  talented professional artists travel from different countries to the picturesque mountain village of Cómpeta, Málaga, Spain for the 4th International Art Symposium LUZ. They come from Poland, Italy, Denmark, The Netherlands, Japan, Cyprus and Albanie. While they come from different artistic backgrounds and speak different languages, each artist makes the journey to Cómpeta to share  this exciting new experience with his fellow artists.

The concept of the symposium is to create, for a week, an environment where professional artists from all over the world can meet to exchange knowledge, techniques and ideas related to their chosen profession. It provides new connections and networks. The beautiful Spanish village Competa and the impressive nature of the natural park will definitly be inspiring for the artists! Some of them have never been in Spain.

Take part in this great event!

The symposium is a public event using a location in the natural park where local people and art-lovers will be able to experience artists creating their own particular style in real time.

The visitor will be given a good insight into the daily work of a diverse collection of artists. Two times in the week there is a special offer of  lunch and music in the Natural park. At the end of the week, Saturday 20th of October, all art works will be exhibited in the Galeria Luz de la Vida in Cómpeta!

There are many events prepared for the visitors: Good food, art of high quality, jazzy live music, beautiful views and a relaxing ambience are assured for art lovers coming up to the beautiful village of Cómpeta!
