##Looking for a place where you can enjoy beautiful art and indulge in good food? In that case you may be overdue a visit to ‘Las Cervezas del Mercado’ in Mercado del Colón of Valencia.
The modern restaurant is currently home to an art exhibition called “Reflejos” by the Valencian artist María Cospedal.
Las Cervezas del Mercado: “The exhibition is articulated through abstraction, geometric composition and colour. Or perhaps, through energy fields that go beyond that and serve as a catalyst for the emotions that will emerge from the viewer. “Reflejos” is the title of this exhibition hosted by Las Cervezas del Mercado by BWK in the lower part of the Mercado de Colón. For this exhibition, María Cospedal, supported by Lupe Fullana, has decided to give a twist to a career highlighted by portraits and figuration, as the Valencian painter, seeks, on this occasion, to reflect through 18 compositions, apparently simple, where what prevails is the colour that vibrates, and expands, inside and outside the limits of space, her soul and also that of the spectator, as her works are a real catalyst of emotions.Colour is the great protagonist. The colour that emerges to the surface through thin layers of paint in the form of glazes that strengthen its strength and presence, emphasising the gestural touch of the hand that paints. The colour that is the soul of these paintings establishes a rhythmic synchrony between them, vibrating next to each other, pulsing the limits of space and thus creating a visual reaction in the spectator.”
María Cospedal: “I want to awaken the imagination, but I also want to go further and make those mixed feelings that each person has a reflection of themselves, of their tastes, likes and personality”, explains the painter, who on this occasion does not look at people, but rather looks inside them.
While admiring the powerful artwork that covers the walls of Las Cervezas del Mercado, enjoy some plates of their tapas and wide selection of craft beers.
