Art in Benahavis
Business in the village has suffered recently in general, partly because of the economy on the Coast where villages reliant upon restaurant trade & art and crafts like Benahavis feel the pinch as everyone tightens their purse strings...Sadly Louis' Gallery is no more, and Lily Kojman's Galeria de Artehavis looks to be following suit.
On a brighter note there is a small new gallery by the shop & David Marshall's is still going strong. For a village like Benahavis, home to so many talented & creative artists for so long, it would be a crying shame to see that aspect disappear. The Galeria Bar in Benahavis run by Terry & Sue showcases several local artists, and I urge residents & tourists alike to support local art. With so many new developments springing up and shortly completed, I am hoping to see them furnished with local art, furniture and pottery.
