"Overall, the media they produce and erect the news of Punta del Este [especially the Argentines], we do a disservice to the spa to highlight almost exclusively driven fashion, fashion shows, model summer the party of the season, the rich and famous, and the romance of the season. This makes people unfamiliar Punta del Este think it's only the paradise of light and frivolity culture ", opens fire Luis Alberto Lecuna director of the Instituto Cultural Pueblo Blanco, an area where driving various educational and cultural activities.
"While there is all that moved ciertoque" continues Lecuna-"and it sells, and that creates jobs for many people, does not mean that's the only thing you do in Punta del Este. There are other moves that are not news. One is the cultural scene, more intense, more professional, more hierarchical. Silently, without the support of the press, much more interested in the tail or topless summer cultural scene Estena growing every year. "
And as for shows not just a button, not less than 24 art galleries, artists' workshops and ateliers Uruguay and Argentina-although there are also other nationalities-open their doors every year in La Barra de Maldonado, only in the section ranging from undulating bridge to the Hotel Las Dunas.

An artistic movement that takes place three years ago, with a route that goes from the bar to Springs, and proposes an artistic itinerary that has more than 25 art spaces.

The artist Virginia Jones was installed four years ago at kilometer 160 and middle of the bar, next to the estate Gancedo. "We are four painters: Patricia Gancedo cake and works naked Dina Vincent paints portraits with acrylic and oil; July Scottini is more abstract and works with acrylic.

The other dishes are samples of two contemporary artists: Marcelo Eduardo Cardoso and Legrand, two Uruguayans using paint with a special sensitivity. "In the case of Eduardo Cardoso, in a very minimalist, with just almost musical tones that highlight the work. For his part, blasted handles more expressive Legrand, "says Castillo.
According to the expert curator, art buyer of La Barra does not give the same to buy a robe that a painting Hindu. "He is knowledgeable and demanding. Know what you want. They usually have good training, enjoy and have fun buying art, they do feel an investment and complete a search. "

For the artist Rosario Rubilar, alma mater of Rubilar Gallery, art is the great support of the Bar. As defined critics, "the world is a game rubilariano opposite, where the baroque art and play the same ambiguous irony in a plane."
"Mine is very playful," she moves "I play, I laugh a lot and have fun with what I do, and I'm always looking for the magic in every frame." Meanwhile, Daniel Cardoso, who three years ago set up their easels in La Barra, moved closer to the epicenter of the movement, 50 meters from the Ancap. In his atelier and marine displays her naked and still lives with his wife Esther Modernell.
