A local artist wants to raise funds for colon cancer research at IRBLleida

The reimbursement of the sale of the works will be entirely devoted to research

The local artist Maribel Mòdol has organized, for the first time, an exhibition of nine abstract art paintings with the aim of raising funds for research on colon cancer that is carried out at the Biomedical Research Institute of Lleida (IRBLleida). The inauguration of the exhibition will take place this Friday, April 20th, at 8:30 p.m., and the exhibition can be seen until May 22nd at La Impremta café in Lleida.

"Each painting has a theme and a message to be transmitted" explained Mòdol, who hopes that the exhibition will be a success and that all the paintings will be sold "in order to raise the more money for research". This is the first exhibition of this self-taught artist who, for familar reasons, wants to allocate the proceeds from the sale of the works in entirely to colon cancer research.

The nine paintings can be seen and purchased for a month in La Impremta café in Lleida
