The first exhibition ever of students to the famous English artist and art teacher Heather Gail Harman.
Heather Harman is one of Britain’s most respected artists and specialist in pastel, but she also works with oil and watercolor. Heather is affiliated with and / or full member in 5 large pastel portraits and societies worldwide, and she was an advisor to the emerging “Pastel Guild of Europe” in 2010, and became a full member of the board shortly afterwards (now retired).
Heather is also a prolific writer in several art magazines, she wrote for many years regularly for the prestigious “Art Publishing Group” in the UK. Her work can currently be found in both public and private collections worldwide. 2004 she and her husband moved to the Andalusian mountains in Canillas de Aceituno (Málaga). Where she holds art courses and this art exhibition in Alcaucin shows works from some of her students.
The exhibition is held in the “Centro de Arte y Desarrollo Popular de Alcaucín” which is a new large municipal art center on 726 square meters. This is unique for such a small town, Alcaucin has less than 3,000 inhabitants. Alcaucín is beautifully situated in the hills above Lake Viñuela, 54 km from Malaga close to the border of the Granada province. It’s easy to find Alcaucín, and once there you will easely find the art center in this small town. But a map of the city is here in the article.

The exhibition will be held December 15, 2014. Times are 10:30 am to 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
One of the students who exhibit their art is the Norwegian artist Tore Line, he is perhaps best known for his activities in the transport industry. He works worldwide but is specialized in transports between Scandinavia and Spain, which is perhaps not so surprising given that he lives here since many years. Tore Line has his home and studio in Los Pavitos which is a small village close to Alcaucin. Tore’s motives are drawn mainly from Norway and Spain, but he travels a lot so there’s motives also from other parts of the world. Tore paint in different techniques, watercolor, pastel and oil.
Some of Tores production can be seen here: Tore Lines virtual gallery.
For those who are able, the beautifull road up to Alcaucín is well worth a trip by itself and if you want you can then continue up over the pass and get down at Granada side (or vice versa if you come from Granada). A map showing the location of Alcaucin is available here.
