Who we are

artAMILL is the headquarters for the association that bears Carles Amill’s name.

The space is in Vinyols, a small village in Tarragona’s province where Carles stablished his art studio to the end of his life.

About artAmill

An art gallery-workshop located in the very center of Vinyols I els Arcs.

A precious town within Baix Camp, right next to Reus,

and about a hundred kilometers south of Barcelona.

Why here

Vinyols was the spot chosen by Carles Amill in 1999 to set up his art studio.
It’s a quiet village at the skirt of soft hills looking at the Mediterranean sea.

Vinyols is growing as a dorm for the more industrial areas of Reus

and Tarragona but keeps its charm and is very conveniently

located, at 100Km South of Barcelona.

Elegy for Carles Amill

by Mick Stern, April 2004

He lived in caves in gypsy neighborhoods, cavernous studios without much light except the light from his paintings.

One night in Brooklyn he invited me to remove my shoes and walk shut-eyed across a canvas laid out on the cement floor to feel the voluptuous thickness of pigment through the feet of my soul.

It was after his blue period of potatoes and stone walls, but before the architectural facades and drawings of fire.

He lived his vocation like a medieval monk, didn’t understand the big hurry of modern life.
