CASTRO FLOREZ' WORK SEES THE LIGHT AGAIN

.....On Thursday the 5th of July next we will celebrate the first anniversary of the Artist's passaing away.

.....An interesting selection of his work, consisting of small and medium sized bronzes, as well as functional objects in copper, will be exhibited in the Casa de Cultura of Agost. In the same exhibition you will be able to see the Iberian Sphynxes, belonging to the collection of The Agost Municipality, in stone reproductions by Jorge Castro. These pieces, of great interest for the historic heritage of the town, are a recreation of the artist of the originals, situated between the sixth and first century BC, that were moved to the Louvre Museum in the 19th century. Nowadays one of them is kept in Spain, in the National Archaeologic Museum.

.....Apart from the artist's own collection, a great part of his work can be found in private collections and public institutions, mostly in Germany, France, Austria, U.S.A. and Canada.

.....Jorge Castro Florez developped his creative stage, especially the bronzes collection, during the almost four decades he has been living in this town in the province of Alicante, which now pays tribute to him.

.....The event -how could it be otherwise being the town one of an extraordinary musical tradition- will include musical interpretations as well as the acknowledgement of the title of Adopted Son of Agost, and the granting of the Award Escultor Castro Florez to three persons or institutions, yet to be revealed, that have co-operated and given their support to the expansion of the Artist's work.
