Art show

Last Friday I was in an Art show in an hotel in Madrid. The hotel name is Hotel de las Letras, the translation could be: Letter's or Word's Hotel. That's because in each room there are poems written down in the walls.
The show was in the second floor. Each artist had one room to show his work.
There were different disciplines: photography, design, illustration, video installations,...
I was not very impressed with the show. It was more interesting to see how a hotel can be transformed in a gallery.
My attention was caught by 4 or 5 artists. They are not many because there were 20 or more in total.

I enjoyed the photography itself very much, Tomás Miñambres, that the most and Julieta Alvarez's room (photo here to the left). She was there and I spoke to her. She was so nice and she said she was happy because she had sold one of her designs to a paper company. Good for her!!
Here you have a few photos of some rooms. Sorry but I forgot some of the names of the artists.



The postcards from Carly for the Morphe Exhibition arrived on Monday. They are great Carly! Thank you!
And we have a new member in the family! Miguel's upright bass! They are in love with each other! Now I have live music at home!

Wow! That is so cool! Are you able to make reservations for specific rooms in the hotel?

Congratulations on Miguel's new bass too!
(And I love the Jay Ryan poster on your wall.)

That hotel looks so cool! I love hearing about hotels like that. When I was a working gal, my coworkers and I always tried to find the hip "in" hotels to stay at. I miss that.

Hi! I've found your blog on "chicadecanella blog" and I love it, your shop too. It's funny 'cause we have almost the same name ;). I'd like to add you to my blog links and to my site links if you're ok?
By the way my favorite "room" is Julieta's, it's nice you met her.
