América Exhibit, by Manuela Picón MIRA Cultural Space


On Friday November 7, the Mayor of Pozuelo de Alarcón, Paloma Adrados, accompanied by the Culture Councilwoman, Isabel González, inaugurated the exhibition América, by Manuela Picó, in the town’s venue Espacio Cultural MIRA. The show features over 30 works by the artist inspired by ceramics, jewels and other pre-Columbian objects that are found in the Museo de América in Madrid, as well as by dishware from Talavera de la Reina.


Manuela Picó was born in Azuaga (Badajoz) and had an early inclination towards arts, obtaining children’s drawing and painting awards and diplomas.  She studied in the Marques de Cubas School of Applied Arts and Crafts in Madrid before joining the San Fernando School of Fine Arts.

She quit her studies of Fine Arts in order to work in the field of marketing and advertising for two multinational companies, but she never ceased painting.




In October 2001 she established as a professional painter, which become her full-time activity one year later.

Her work focuses mostly on depicting old ceramics, more specifically Talavera ceramics, using oil paint on canvas. She recently opened the door to more innovative media.

Among other things, she is member of the Grupo Pro-Arte y Cultura, curator, juror in painting contests, cultural agent, teacher having her own workshop, and advisor of the Comité de Arte del Club 567 in Madrid. Additionally, she collaborates with the City Council of Pozuelo de Alarcón for exhibitions and plastic arts fairs.
