Our paintings

 For those of you unable to visit the exhibition of our paintings, I have made you an album which you can find in the sidebar. 

From an idea proposed by Evaristo and I many years ago, BigArte was formed last year with six artists attending the first meeting in Evaristo's office. 

Our first exhibition was last May. Then we had a homage to my work as a photographer. That exhibition was restaged in the town square and in the Auditorium. We then went on to produce paintings for Santa Cecilia with the theme of music. 

Our latest exhibition is called "Diologo con los Maestros", a little of the Prado Museum in Bigastro. We were to reinterpret the old masters. 

Artists chose to reinterpret the works of Dali, Magritte, Picasso, Durer and others. The Spanish artist, Joaquin Sorolla was popular. My contribution included works based on Constable. Turner and Rembrant. 

All the paintings are offered for sale.

A date for the diary


New cycle routes

 Work has already started to build three bike lanes in the municipality. In this case, as we previously reported, it is the execution of a bike lane that connects the CV-95 walkway next to the Municipal Auditorium to the Sports Center, another lane on Avenida Europa to the San José de Calasanz School and another lane to connect the urban area of ​​La Pedrera with the leisure area up to the pool.

With these actions, which have an investment of more than 181,000 euros thanks to the Generalitat Valenciana, it will be possible to improve traffic management on several roads in the municipality with the cycle-pedestrian connection between the urban area and three unique points of the municipality, two of them far away, such as the Sports Center and the La Pedrera leisure area, improving road safety and creating new services that will serve to promote sports and healthier activities.

The objective set in our sustainable mobility plan is to reduce the impact of the use of tourism in urban areas and above all the reduction of speed within them, prioritizing actions of this uniqueness.

During the next few weeks we will encounter temporary road closures in some of the streets of the municipality, especially those closest to the school, although certain signaling works will be carried out at night to avoid minimizing the impact in the early hours of the morning. the high influence of vehicles with long traffic queues. Sorry for the inconvenience

Cats in gardens

 There have been a number of complaints from neighbours on the community WhatsApp about cats in gardens. 

One neighbour in particular is incensed about the way they use her garden and her porch as a toilet. She has a young child and is rightly concerned about the possibility of infection. 

Another neighbour has a similar problem and has installed ultrasonic cat scarers along with chemicals that are supposed to repel cats. 

When our original neighbours had cats, I invested in ultrasonic devices to try and keep them out of our garden. I can tell you that they didn't work. On one occasion, one of their cats was sat quite happily next to the  scarer. I could see it was functioning because the light was on. 

Luckily, we don't have a problem anymore but I do sympathise with those who do. It is unpleasant and unhygienic.
