What is there to do in San Sebastian? A route through the best art galleries

We are already in May! A month of preparation for the summer, of bright days and warmer temperatures. It is an ideal time to make trips and discover new places. Do you want to visit San Sebastián city of culture? During this month, the city offers various proposals for all audiences and preferences. On this occasion, from Hotel Londres we want to encourage you to explore San Sebastian Donostia from a cultural point of view and, therefore, we propose you to make a route through the best art galleries in the city. Would you like to discover them?

  1. Arteko; San Sebastian Art

Founded in 1996, this gallery was born with a very clear objective: to bring art closer to society. Since then, he has been responsible for disseminating the work of various artists, organizing exhibitions of sculpture, painting, photographs, etc., with a varied program and, in addition, uninterrupted.

Until the end of June, the Arteko gallery hosts the exhibition ‘El tiempo del cielo’, by the San Sebastian author Miguel Pínter. It is a work that combines the novel with painting, the two passions of the artist.

  1. Kur Art Gallery San Sebastian

Kur Art Gallery opens its doors in 2002 with the aim of responding to the need to have a space to professionalize the sale of works of art. This gallery is centered, above all, on sculptures.

If you dare to visit this place, you can admire the exhibition ‘Cultures of the World’, by Luis Candaudap, a journey through the stereotypes that are responsible for sizing the world through various iconic creations.

Where is it? Paseo Zurriola 6

  1. Ekain Arte Lanak

In the heart of the Old Part of Donostia, this art gallery represents a wonderful find during the walk. It has an area of 120 m2 distributed in two exhibition spaces. In the gallery background it is possible to find works from several disciplines: photography, sculpture, painting and graphics. On the other hand, in the exhibition hall, the samples are signed by important artists, although at affordable prices.

Both the name of the gallery and the logo are a nod to the ancestors, as they refer to two bears drawn more than 15,000 years ago in an Ekain cave.

  1. Vetusart

Finally, this list would be incomplete if we did not mention the Vetusart art gallery. It is a relatively new space, since it opened its doors only in 2016, but the truth is that it has managed to become a benchmark. Its purpose, as its founders explain, is to represent and exhibit the next generation of contemporary Basque artists.

Its location, in front of La Concha Bay, has also helped a lot in that this gallery has grown exponentially.

Among the artists whose works have passed through this gallery are Javier Muro, Iñigo Manterola, Bosco Sodi, Maximilian Pelzmann, etc.

Where is it? Calle Hernani, 21
