Galeria Cuatro exhibition “Sexto Sentido” to show new large-scale embroidered painting by Bay Backner

Bay is showing new work in the latest exhibition at Valencia gallery Galería Cuatro. The show, Sexto Sentido, will open this Thursday, 29th January. Bay will debut her latest large-scale embroidered painting Blancanieves (Snow White), a 114×146 canvas which will be featured on this site after the exhibition opens.

Following current restrictions for Covid-19, there will be no traditional inauguration. The works can be viewed in person at the gallery between 10am and 6pm until 3rd March 2021.

Galería Cuatro’s director Miguel Castello was yesterday interviewed by newspaper Las Provincias. He discusses the challenges facing our city’s art scene and the importance of making galleries relevant for the younger generation. You can read the full interview in Las Provincias Culture here.

Galería Cuatro is a well-established and pioneering Valencian gallery, having opened its doors more than forty years ago in July 1980. Initially it was a parallel space to the historic Theo Gallery, concieved to support the work of emerging Valencian artists.

Some of the artists that Galería Cuatro supported in their early careers include important names like Francisco Lozano, Joaquín Michavila, José María Yturralde, Jordi Teixidor and Artur Heras.

The gallery overcame Spain’s 2008 economic crisis and is facing current challenges with innovative exhibitions and new artists. These are being led by Miguel Castillo’s son David, who has taken on the role of gallery curator.

Bay is delighted to be participating in the gallery’s program this year.
