THE MARINA ALTA ARTS SOCIETY combined its fifth anniversary celebrations with the Platinum Jubilee in Teulada on June 2.
Over 80 members, guests, sponsors and supporters enjoyed the final meeting of the Society of the Arts at Salones Canor before the summer holidays.
Participants were treated to a presentation of works by Johannes Vermeer by Jane Choy-Therlow, from the Mauritshuis and Prince William museums in The Hague.
This was followed by a reception and garden party in Canor Gardens where tapas and refreshments were available and members socialized in a calm, warm weather atmosphere.
The Society’s fifth anniversary was greeted by the Treasurer, Peter Eales, and a toast was offered to celebrate the Royal Platinum Jubilee, which was warmly applauded.
The participants came from America, Canada, Lithuania, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and of course Great Britain. All gathered to celebrate the occasion in unison.
“We would also like to thank our sponsors, BlevinsFranks and Inmobres Calpe for their support of both the Society and the Gargasindi School in Benissa,” said David Glover, President of the Arts Society Marina Alta.
