They create a harmony of colours that embrace us and, in doing so, we become aware of our most intimate emotions. Each work has its own story. Nothing is left over. All the elements form an immortalized story within a framework. The author invites viewers to find out what this story is. The works on display are painted in oil, acrylic, watercolour, crayons and digital.

About the author and her style: “I don’t have a single pictorial style if we understand style to be that which allows us to discover the authors because they always create following the same emotion or set of emotions. I have several “I’s”. This causes my style to vary depending on the self being expressed that day. That’s why it’s hard to recognize my paintings as mine. ”

be closed this Monday and Tuesday and that new films will be announced on Wednesday. If interested Google Cinemes Illa Carlemany and then click on Cartellera.


Monday, 14th June at 20h in the Encamp Communal Library, Encamp. (A conference designed for a family and adult audience. Limited places. Reservation essential. Tel. 856 787 or www.comuencamp.ad) Can we live on the planet Mars? by the Catalan astronomer, Joan Pujol. Mars is the planet in the Solar System that most closely resembles Earth. Even in ancient times, it was already a mysterious and revered planet. In this conference with its many images and videos, we can discover where it came from and, among other stories, the belief in its famous “Martians”. We will be shown recent images from satellites and robots sent to the red planet, and at the same time we will be able to compare the similarities between Earth and Mars. Mars is likely to become the second human-inhabited planet in our Solar System.

Tuesday, 15th June at 18h, in the Pas de la Casa Communal Library. (Free. For all audiences. Limited places. Reservation essential. Tel. 856 787 or www.comuencamp.ad) From the SETI project to exoplanets, an astronomy lecture by Joan Pujol. In 1960, astronomer Frank Drake conducted the first SETI experiment, (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) named “Project Ozma.” He used the 26-meter-diameter Green Bank radio telescope. The goal was to study the stars Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani, located 11 light-years away from us and with a physical structure similar to the Sun. The intention of the SETI project was the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, either through analysis of electromagnetic signals captured by radio telescopes, or by sending signals from Earth into outer space to make our presence known. So far, more than three thousand planets have been discovered by different methods. Some in habitable regions, some with liquid water on the surface. Probably in the next few years, the new telescopes that are being built will make great discoveries, and, who knows, we may realize that we are not alone.
