Pilar de la Horadada welcomes two new collections at the Casa de Cultura exhibition hall and corridors that will run until 31st October.
“The Color of Flowers” is the second collection by Olga Sánchez who has been painting and drawing locally for over a decade. The exhibition includes 29 works mostly floral which is “a major style change from the collection that the Torrevieja secondary school teacher exhibited last year.
“The Color of Flowers” brings together a large mix of techniques ranging from acrylic on canvas to charcoal, graphite and watercolor, through which the author produces a great visual feeling and richness of textures.
The second exhibition, “Postcards of Our History” includes edited images from 1900 through to the eighties
There are 126 postcards, of which 21 depict Pilar de la Horadada and the rest the local area including Los Alcazares, San Javier, San Pedro del Pinatar and Campoamor.
This traveling exhibition “Postcards of Our History” began its journey in May in San Pedro del Pinatar and after visiting Santiago de la Ribera (San Javier) and Los Alcazares finally arrived in Pilar de la Horadada, with 6 new images, one of San Pedro del Pinatar, 1909, another Campoamor 1905, a map of the coastline and 3 postcards showing Torre de la Horadada in the sixties.

About fifty local police, together with support and cleaning staff, protested outside the gates of the Torrevieja Courthouse on Monday morning during the trial of six local officers and three janitors who appeared as defendants, charged for offences which included showing their naked torso’s during earlier protests which took place outside the Town Hall earlier in the year.
However the hearing had to be postponed because of technical difficulties encountered by prosecution councilors with a video machine.
The hearing was attended by Police Inspector Manuel Lopez, José Manuel Dolon, Municipal spokesman for Los Verdes and Alejandro Esteban, Secretary of the Alternativa Popular.
Applause broke out at the door of the courthouse from some members of the trade unions CCOO and Sipol when the adjournment was announced. .
Representing the CCOO, local police officer Juan Antonio Moya, said the rally was held in support of his colleagues and that the whole thing was “nothing more than a witch hunt and persecution and that the officers were doing nothing more than “standing up for their rights.”
Moya said that there had been no willingness to negotiate by City officials, which is all that his members ask for. They were asking for nothing that was illegal. One example of their claims was a seven day rest period following seven continuous days of duty, which is a shift pattern already being satisfactorily operated by the coastguard service
He said that until their claims were acknowledged his members would resume their monthly protests to coincide with the conclusion of the council plenary sessions, starting this month.
