Colour in nature by Annabel Overbury

Room 1 of the Casa de Las Tejerinas, located in the Plaza de las Flores, will host from May 9 an exhibition of paintings by the British artist based in the town, Anabel Overbury, whose official inauguration will take place on Friday the 10th at 6:00 p.m.

The exhibition is titled “Color in Nature”, and is made up of a total of 27 works, mostly made with the watercolor technique on paper, and others in acrylic on board or canvas.

The exhibition will remain open to the public until May 22, and can be visited from Tuesday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with free access.

Annabel Overbury was born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, in 1955. She spent her childhood near the countryside, an experience that marked her artistic development. At school she found refuge in the art department, away from the hustle and bustle of a large, busy school, and she was lucky to have a very demanding but inspiring teacher, Ruth Howell, who encouraged her to pursue art. This led her to Slade, where she studied between 1973 and 1977. Thanks to an intergovernmental cultural scholarship to advance her artistic career, she arrived in Spain.

The move to Spain, specifically to Andalusia, expanded his horizons and his vision, both from a personal and artistic point of view. The original plan was to spend nine months in Spain, but more than forty years later “I am still here because in one of these drawing classes I met my future husband, Emilio Sújar. “Now we live with our daughter and son, Zhara and Emilio, in Estepona,” says the artist.
