Art Gaucin Open Studios
The Art Gaucin Open Studios weekends have become a well-known fixture of the art scene in Andalucia, with exhibitions of work by several Spanish and foreign artists.
The last Art Gaucin to take place was in May 2019. The event was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. There were colective exhibitions by the Art Gaucin team in 2021. The Art Gaucin Open Studios is takeing place again 27, 28 and 29 May and 3, 4 and 5 June 2022. Opening hours : 11.00 to 19.00.
In 2022, 18 studios will open their doors to show the work of 21 artists. This year Art Gaucín has new additions such as Paco Vivar Brinkmann, Jenny Collins and Raffaela Zenoni, as well as Marta Bernad as guest artist.
The project is into its second decade, the Art Gaucin Open Studios event is an opportunity to meet the artists, learn more about their work and techniques, and see and buy their paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs and ceramics.
The Art Gaucin Open Studios take place over two long weekends - usually last in May and first in June - and showcase new work by Art Gaucin's member artists as well as by guest artists Javier Machimbarrena from Spain and Gerrit Oppelland-Hampel from Germany.

Its long-established members include Jim Rattenbury, whose paintings and sculptures are in several private collections abroad, and Michael Roschlau, former Glasgow School of Art lecturer and artist whose works include lithographs, paintings and intricate clockwork wall sculptures.
Art Gaucin's roster of painters includes Joseba Sánchez Zabaleta, Ana Pellón, Nozomi Hatano, and Paddy Robinson, Sara Webb. The group includes photographers Chris Klees and Vivienne Whiffen as well as ceramicists and sculptors Juan Antonio Sangil, Rosie Venables and Anna McGrane, Sebastian Fisher and Silvia Franco.
