From the 14th to the 31st of March, the Vila Casas Foundation opens the annual call for the Fundació Vila Casas Awards ―dotally rotated to the disciplines of painting, sculpture and photography―. This award has become, after more than a decade in operation, a way through which we give visibility to the creation of our artists.
The jury's verdict will be made public on the day of the opening of the exhibition of selected works at the museum that hosts the discipline convened (Palau Solterra, photography; Can Mario, sculpture; and Can Framis, painting).
Artists, born or resident in Catalonia, over the age of 18 may participate in this call.
The subject is free and can be used in the wide range of techniques and media in which current painting is expressed.
