The stunning white villages of Andalucia have inspired artists for centuries. Gaucín, perched on the balcony of the Serranía de Ronda, is steeped in history and charm, making it one of the region’s most enchanting destinations.
A picturesque little village in Málaga Province, Gaucín overlooks the spectacular valley of the Genal River and has views stretching across the sea to Africa. Hidden among its white, flower-filled streets are the studios of more than twenty artists of all disciplines.
Our group, Art Gaucín, has grown over the past couple of decades and now represents more than 20 Spanish and foreign artists including painters, sculptors, printers, photographers and ceramicists. Several of our founding members are still working here in Gaucín; Juan Antonio Sangil, Ana Pellón, Jim Rattenbury, Anna McGrane and Jennifer Waterhouse were among those who took part in our first group show in 2002. Sadly, Bayard Osborn, the American painter and sculptor who was one of our founding members, passed away; other members such as print-maker Brenda Hartill and painter Victoria Orr-Ewing, have left Spain.
Every year, during the last two weekends of May, we open our studios to visitors to show our latest work. You can also contact us directly and visit our studios by appointment.
We invite you to come to Gaucín and visit the sculptors, painters, photographers and printmakers who live and work here; we promise you a unique and unforgettable experience.
