IN DECEMBER THERE ARE PARTY FLAVORS IN A DOCUMENTARY EXHIBITION AT THE SILVES MUNICIPAL LIBRARY During the month of December, in the António Lobo Antunes room, the Silves Municipal Library hosts a thematic documentary exhibition dedicated to Christmas gastronomic themes. It is a good opportunity for readers to discover a wide range of bibliography dedicated to this topic. On Christmas Eve we gather the family at the table and enjoy dishes that have been common over the years but always taste good! There are so many Christmas traditions around the world. This variety is also reflected at the table with many typical dishes; some more appealing than others, others more eccentric or colorful and, still, those that we are already finding on Portuguese tables. Which ones would you try? Let yourself be surprised by your Library’s proposals.
HAVE YOU EVER VISITED THE EXHIBITION “TREES AND CANAVAIS II”, BY JORGE SANTOS? The Misericórdia Church, in Silves, hosts the exhibition “Arvoredos e Canaviais II”, by artist Jorge Santos, until January 12th. The exhibition, curated by João Silvério, aims to pay homage to the work of artist Jorge Santos and his memory, in the place where he was born. His artistic production, carried out over almost a quarter of a century, is very vast: drawings, paintings, screen prints, photographs, videos, sculptures, tiles and a very considerable number of the artist’s books, but also annotated notebooks where we find studies for various projects in each of these areas of creation, many of them accomplished and others that, being part of his work process, contributed to many other works, some of them unpublished. The exhibition, the second in this cycle dedicated to his work, presents a selection of works very representative of his artistic career, from a more intimate perspective. It is a moment to share his memory and the legacy of a very unique, contemporary work closely linked to the human expression of a poetic and imaginary that is close to us. It should be noted that his works were exhibited […]
