The Cicca will host today, October 18, beginning at 6:00 p.m., the first auction public art of the Canary Islands in the last forty years. This has been announced by the manager of the La Caja de Canarias Foundation, Fernando Fernández and the architect of the event Míriam Domínguez.
With a total of 78 lots, works by fifteen artists, this auction aims to lay the first stone for the creation of a local market of works of art that allows collectors and lovers of painting and sculpture to purchase pieces without having to move to other points of the Spanish geography.
Thus paintings by Pepe Dámaso, Néstor de La Torre, Jesus Arencibia, Juan Cabrera, Pino Ojeda, Lola Massieu, Manolo Millares, and many others, along with sculptures by Juan Borges and Martín Chirino will be exhibited at the CICCA until Thursday, October 18 , when it will proceed to its auction.
In this sense, Leticia Permuy, Head of sales of the prestigious Segre Auction House, will be in charge of directing this auction that promises to become an event.
The works start with prices that range from 350 euros to 140,000 euros of the Afrocan sculpture by Martín Chirino.
The catalog of these works of art can be found on the Facebook page
