New art exhibition at Salentein Winery


The new exhibition started on april 19th at our Killka art gallery and will be open until August 30th. The art that you will be able to admire corresponds to two argentine artists Enrique Testasecca, Adrián Mazzieri and the dutch artist Serge Steijn.


Nature is the main theme of this exhibition. These three artists present their work impregnated of this main subject. Each one of them from a different perspective about their  immediate environment, about nature interpreted as landscapes and learnt by the observant subject.


The languages chosen change from one artist to another: drawings, paintings and photography. The way each artist stands in front of the main subject changes as well: we may find a contemplative way, another one that places the subject as the leading man and a last perspective that is controlled by the concept of nature itself.


The exhibition inauguration was the center of attention for many locals but for tourists too, they all had the chance to enjoy the art as well as the best wine from Valle de Uco.

You can visit the exhibition: Tuesdays to Sundays, and holidays Mondays from 10 to 18 at Killka-Espacio Salentein (Ruta 89, Km 14, Los Árboles, Tunuyán, Mendoza)


Curator: Anabel Simionato / Art coordinator: Valeria Señorans / Museum work: Agustina Romero, Mariano García y Rodrigo Zayas.
