Art, in Santiago, is in the buildings, the rooftops, the gardens, the rain… In a city in which this discipline has played such an important role in its history.

The Espacio 48 gallery was founded in October 2000 to promote the work of national and international contemporary artists. From the beginning, it was conceived as a place for presenting new initiatives, opening up new roads and promoting the career of emergent artists. The gallery owner, Charo Santiago, is committed to the artists and participates in their own project, trying to create an ideal that goes beyond the merely commercial. This romantic mentality is reflected by its exhibitions, which make room for new initiatives without forgetting more established creators.Rúa do Vilar 48, Santiago de Compostela, 15705
