WELCOME FROM THE THE PRESIDENT OF THE PROVINCIAL COUNCIL OF CÓRDOBA AND MAYORESS OF PRIEGO DE CÓRDOBA


     




When giving the welcome to the artists attending this 17th ECWS International Watercolour Exhibition and Symposium “Córdoba 2014”, and who will also have the opportunity to visit and to paint in Priego of Córdoba, I would like to explain briefly the causes that have motivated the election of Priego as one of the venues.

First, it is, clearly, because of the beauty of our city and its landscaping surroundings (the Natural Park of the Subbéticas Mountains), where artists may find numberless subjects to captive with their brushes.

Secondly, it is because of the Municipal Patronage “Adolfo Lozano Sidro”, which led, since 1994, a movement around watercolour in all Andalusia which brought the greatest Spanish watercolour masters to this town. Since then, Priego has become an essential reference both for the Andalusia and the Spanish watercolour panorama.


For that reason, we are thankful to the Agrupación de Acuarelistas de Andalucía for choosing Priego as one of the venues of Cordoba 2014 International Symposium, an encounter that we hope will become an unforgettable reference for the future for all the attendees.
