WHAT IS OUR GALLERY






















WHAT IS OUR GALLERY.


We are pleased to announce the opening of a new arts centre in Barcelona, we commenced our activities with the first exhibition in December 2008.


FLASH GALLERY BCN

(...A flash lasts a thousandth of a second, yet sometimes it immortalizes an instant of time, important in our lives...)


The Art Gallery has been created exclusively for LOVE of Art. It is a legal established non-profit organization with the sole purpose of supporting the artists and make the art more accessible to everybody.

FLASH GALLERY BCN takes place in a singular space: An Architecture studio located in the heart of Barrio de Sants in Barcelona, dating from the beginning of the 20th century.

FLASH GALLERY BCN holds only 4 exhibitions per year; one per season (Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter).

The idea of FLASH GALLERY BCN emerged after two long years of research, analysis and study of art galleries, mainly in Barcelona, but also in other great cities around the World like Berlin, New York, London, Prague, Miami, Madrid, etc.

Undoubtedly, the most “magical” moment of any exposition is its “vernissage,” when public and artists get together to jointly enjoy the event, meet the artists, gallery owners, collectors, and just other art lovers.

At the moment of the opening, the “magic” of the “red dot” overwhelms artist and buyer. One has created and the other can enjoy the creation for life. Once the moment is over, in 95% of the cases there are no new red dots, no matter how long the duration of the exhibition.

It is precisely these reflections that have provided the cornerstone for the new art space and its name, FLASH GALLERY BCN. To ensure that the “magical” moment does not lose its effect, and that it lasts for the duration of the exhibition. For that reason, the exhibits will last only 2 days of a weekend.

Since this is a non-profit organization, the amount paid for the works of art will go directly to the respective artists.


Warm greetings


FLASH GALLERY BCN
