The Portal a l’art Gallery, as it was called, began its journey on December 22 of 2007. This project is the result of the enthusiasm, effort, perseverance, and creativity of an artist who did not stop trying until she saw it came true

It is a living gallery, with its own soul, perhaps different from what is considered to be an Art gallery, in which we work every day to improve our services and attention to those who visit us.
The Art School is born
In 2008, the gallery expanded its cultural space, opening the Lola Llinares School of Drawing and Painting Workshop to the public. Countless students of different ages, countries and pictorial tastes have passed through this school. This is intended to create a space in which all who share this same passion for art and culture are sheltered.
It is open to all trends and forms of expression with the same purpose: Art.
In this Art school, classes are taught in different languages (Spanish, Valencian, French, English, German and Russian). Different disciplines and painting techniques (oil, watercolor, acrylics …) and different styles and trends (realism, impressionism, expressionism, abstraction) are learned and you can participate in the intensive courses (natural landscape, abstraction, etc.) that during the year are convened and performed.
Starting in 2019, it was decided to create an online store in order to disseminate these works of art and the gallery itself, wanting to reach a wider audience.
The artworks are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, which guarantees the authorship and quality of the works.
All these artwork are characterized by its originality in terms of subject matter and innovation in terms of painting techniques.
Portal al ‘Art or Lola Llinares Gallery is a gallery open to different artistic expressions, it is a gallery in which the artist and his work are respected and that from the beggining, has collaborated with different groups, always with the intention of bringing Art to all people who want it, regardless of their financial availability.
