The Fine Arts Summer Show

The Fine Arts Association is once again organizing its  Annual Summer Show exhibition. Under the title “The Fine Arts Summer Show” the exhibition will feature works by a number of artists from Gibraltar and abroad and is opened to the public at The Fine Arts Gallery, Casemates. The exhibition aims to make art more accessible to the general public and all works will be available on a “pay as you go” basis allowing buyers to walk away with their artworks once the purchase has been completed if they so desire. Another of the exhibition’s goal is to offer artists the chance of show casing their latest works in a group show prior to the summer hiatus. It should therefore serve as a means for art lovers to taste the “artistic waters” and current art developments prior to the bigger Autumn shows. Everyone is welcome.

Boxing Day in Gibraltar is traditionally celebrated by some by participating in an extremely successful Polar Bear Swim.

Those who brave the cold water are treated to mince pies and brandy along with the annual Polar Bear certificate.


No entry fee but donations welcome
