This is a new art exhibition proposed by the Fundación El Secreto de la Filantropía at the ‘Casino de Agricultura’ in the historic centre of Valencia.

Beginning on the 28th of June, the exhibition ‘Valencian traces in a collection’  will arrive at the ‘Casino de Agricultura de Valencia.’ The exhibition is organised by the Fundación El Secreto de la Filantropía, an organisation that focuses on the promotion and dissemination of philanthropy and patronage, believing that culture and education are fundamental pillars for achieving a more just and balanced society.

The art displayed at the exhibition is extracted from the collection of Luis Trugo, president of the Fundación El Secreto de la Filantropía, and revolves heavily around Valencian art. Curated by art historian Anna Arribas, the exhibition will showcase work by 19th century artists such as Ignacio Pinazo, Cecilio Pla, Antonio Fillol, Emilio Sala, Joaquín Agrasot, José Benlliure, Antonio Muñoz Degrain and Manuel Benedito. Additionally, more modern artists with pictorial approaches such as  Francisco Lozano and Soledad Sevilla will be included. Not only does the exhibition highlight the work and talent of these artists, but also the work that goes into collecting, conserving, studying and caring for cultural heritage.

Anna Aribas and Luis Trugo will offer a presentation at the opening night of the exhibition on Thursday the 27th of June at 7:30pm. The exhibition will be free to enter, and will run until the 30th of December.
