Father and son in two-venue exhibition
Art lovers will find a double bonus in Granadilla with “Canarina Canariensis Bicácaro”.
This exhibition, which can be viewed until May 16th, is in two venues; the Franciscan Convent San Luis Obispo and the History Museum and features the work of a father and his son.
Manolo Sánchez comes from Tenerife and is a member of the group of water-colourists from the island, Barcelona and Mexico, as well as profes-sional bodies in Puerto Rico and Rome. He has staged around 150 solo exhibitions and has received awards at regional, national and European level. He has also edited numerous books.
His exhibition in the convent consists of paintings, photographs and acrylics and was inaugurated by councillor for the area, Óscar Delgado Melo with artist and historian Sergio Afonso Díaz. The history museum in calle peatonal Arquitecto Marrero concentrates on his works in pen.
The photographs in the exhibition are by Manolo’s son, Manuel Sánchez Díaz and revolve around the Canarina Canriensis Bicácaro, a Canary plant which can be found in all of the islands and has a sweet flavour which was used by the Guanches.
