BuySculpture presented as an award at the Artio Restaurant
A new sculpture from our art gallery Buysculpture has been chosen as a prize. The Junta of Extremadura and its Ministry of Turism has presented the “thinker Spaces” by our sculptor Jesus Campos as a prize to one of the best restaurants in the world the Hotel and Restaurant Atrio holding two Michelin starts and rumoured to be soon receiving a third.
Carmina Márquez, the director of the Hotel and Restaurant Atrio received the prize from the hand of the cluster’s president, Jorge Prieto and of the general director of the Turism of Junta of Extremadura, Francisco Martin.
The prize is given in recognition to great public or private companies who have managed to attract to the region of Extremaña noticeable number of tourists via the profile and quality of services offered.
It is yet another occasion when our sculptors and their sculptures get picked for great events, with the end to give the awarded a special touch. How? Not offering them just the usual cup or a plaque, but an authentic work of art.
Giving of an artwork always adds to the prestige and distinction. As well as increases identification of the receiving party.
This time an abstract work was chosen a work invoking the features of the Thinker of Auguste Rodin. But via its abstraction in form and use of space capturing us and making us think of the strength contained in the original piece.
Increasingly, more sculptures of different styles, such as: realism, cubism, impressionism, abstract, surrealism, etc. Are chosen to add a touch of style to prizes given our at events and competitions. Just as it happened in the Restaurant Atrio.
Other sculptures chosen recently as prizes are “Dialogue” by Miguel Guia in constructivist style, awarded as a prize of the Cruz Roja.
And also of sculptor Miguel Guia, a realist work, “Reflexion” chosen by the Medical Pain Society (Sociedad Medica del dolor). It is being awarded on annual basis.
There were also times when our artists have been asked to craft special piece for given event. For instance “Minerva” as the prize of Madrid Centre for the Fine Arts.
Our sculptors always strive to obtain the best results by first talking and discussing with the ordering party the style and purpose of the piece. Something that has been achieved in this award ceremony at the Restaurant Atrio.
