TALENTED local artist Nena Jacques will be displaying her work in a solo art exhibition set to run until January 10.
Twenty oil paintings – including some with a Spanish flavour – will be exhibited in the foyer of Hotel Carmen in La Cala de Mijas in an exhibition that starts on December 13.
Nena has had her work displayed on several occasions with other artists since moving to Mijas Costa nine years ago, but the La Cala exhibition will be her first solo showing.
The opportunity to hold my own exhibition really excites me,” said Nena, who started painting in 1998 and who continues to attend art classes at the local Casa de Cultura.
“I get immense pleasure from people seeing and appreciating my work, and the positive response on occasions,” said Nena, who attends art classes at the local Casa de Cultura. “My satisfaction is when i see my paintings hanging proudly in somebody else’s home and becoming part of their lives.
“It remains to be seen what people think when they see how my style has changed over the years.”
The exhibition will open on December 13 at 7pm, and entrance is free.
