The Guillermina Caicoya Art Projects gallery is a space dedicated to contemporary art with an annual program of individual exhibitions focused on consolidated artists of the Asturian environment such as María Álvarez, Carlos Coronas, Mónica Dixon, Paco Fernández and Natalia Pastor, national artists such as Alfredo Álvarez Plágaro or Mario Espliego, international artists such as Morgan Bancon, Tom Benson, Yosihiko Kitano, Leo Wellmar and Nicolas Woods and emerging youth from the national and international scene.
It has a long history in whose origins is the Walnut Gallery, created in 1969 by Elías Caicoya Masaveu, a descendant of the founders of the Masaveu Bazaar, the first art room in Asturias. At present, Guillermina Caicoya art projects, is located on the ground floor of a historic building whose exhibition space has retained its character and uniqueness, aspects present in the gallery’s philosophy, open to specific interventions with creators such as Paloma Gámez , Teo Soriano or Gonzalo Tena. Projects committed and conceived for the place that are identified with the words of the creator Michael Heizer: “the work of art is not exposed in one place, the place itself is the work of art.”
The determined commitment to the latest art, the special sensitivity for the dissemination of new aesthetic trends in our closest environment, but above all, for the promotion and support of artists at Contemporary Art Fairs, nationally and internationally, as Just Lisboa, Estampa, Pinta Miami, Arte Lisboa, ArteSantander or Just Mad, is compatible with the work of advising on the purchase, appraisal, appraisal and sale of works of art from the 19th and 20th centuries. It has a wide range of artists, both classical and contemporary, among them Eduardo Chillida and a selection of Asturian artists such as Amador, Francisco Casariego, Carolina del Castillo, Telesforo Cuevas, Mariano Moré, Navascués, Vaquero Palacios, Nicanor Piñole, Nicolás Soria, Tamayo, Evaristo Valle and Paulino Vicente.
