Gata (Alicante). ‘Art al Vent’, the most important international exhibition of textile art in Spain returns
From 14 August to September 9, see balconies full of hand-woven craft in Gata’s town centre.
Visit the street called ‘Bassa’ to see 67 canvases of artists from 22 countries from all continents; proof the prestige this exhibition has gained over the years.
‘Art al vent’ combines contemporary textile creations with the popular tradition of hanging quilts over balconies during local festivities as processions go by; a deeply rooted tradition in Costa Blanca towns.
This year is the XV edition and will fill the town with textures and colours and many hanging covers that the town is renown for.
Lots of cultural activities will also be organised so that visitors can make the most of their visit to find out more and enjoy the town.
