IT’S just a small mountain town but Grazalema – which at 823 metres is one of the highest towns in Andalucia – is fast becoming a big name in the art world.
No less than two excellent art exhibitions are running through August.
The first, by young artist Jana Pawlasova, 27, is taking place at the tourist office.
Her first solo exhibition, it showcases a range of original watercolours painted around the region over the last six months.
In the past, mother-of-one Jana, who lives in Ronda, has exhibited in her native Czech Republic and in Scotland, but this is her first show in Spain.
Meanwhile, Valencia-born artist Joan Verdú opened his Simple Images exhibition at the Neilson gallery on the same day.
This collection displays paintings of objects such as torsos and staircases, although Joan also works in photography and sculpture and has had exhibitions all over Spain and in Europe.
