We are pleased to announce details of our latest adventure in collaboration with Around Art/Sofia Barroso. Sofia and les Amis du NMWA have prepared a very exciting itinerary for a visit to Biarritz, San Sebastian and Bilbao, the highlights of which will include the ‘finissage’ (final day) of the retrospective exhibition of Portuguese artist Joanna Vasconcelos at the Guggenheim Bilbao. Joanna is in the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ permanent collection and also part of the WOMEN HOUSE exhibition which premiered at the new Paris contemporary art museum “La Monnaie”. Les Amis du NMWA is very proud that this exhibition has travelled to our museum in Washington aided by the efforts and contacts of the Paris committee.

As experienced by our previous participants in the annual trips organised by les Amis du NMWA, the itinerary below is just a taste of things to come. Sofia continues to shape and add to exclusive visits to private collections and meetings with artists as we get closer to the trip. We would also like to remind you that Lucia Vallejo, the Madrid-based artist who we will see during our visit, was a great success during the Paris committee’s trip to Madrid in 2016. A couple of our participants were delighted to have even had the opportunity to purchase works from this very exciting artist, who is now in some very important private collections.

We look forward to greeting old friends and new participants, members and non-members, to join our exclusive group for another of our trips, which are educational as well as great fun, guided by the effervescent, knowledgeable and well connected Sofia Barroso, director of Around Art, Madrid.
