“As Cores da Viagem”, an exhibition of painting and drawing by António Carmo, invites us to a unique chromatic and poetic journey, resulting from his intense creative and pictorial work, revisiting places in the country and in the world, where Portuguese culture has passed. . It is itself a tribute to our people, customs, flavors, light, culture and our way of being in life and in the world. The matrix of his painting has everything to do with the Portuguese roots of his gaze and with this land bordered by the sea, with the designs stripped of artifice, with everyday figures of touching social density, with this solar country. We are faced with the configuration of a painting inspired by a memory of popular experiences, related to our cultural identity, moments that the movement of its colors and shapes transform into a prodigious plastic symphony. Exhibition until March 13, 2022.

Exhibition “O Recomeço” Born in Lisbon, Ana Banon became an Algarvean at heart when she was 11 years old. Daughter of a plastic artist, she has since fallen in love with the arts. At age 12 she started taking drawing lessons and then ventured out in oil painting as a self-taught person. At the age of 16, she entered a plastic arts competition where she achieved, among more than 30 participants, an honorable 3rd place. She held her first exhibition at the age of 17 and since then has participated in several exhibitions in Portuguese and Spanish art galleries. The dream of following Fine Arts was left behind, but she has been attending training in this area. After an interval between 2007 and 2019, Ana returned to painting in 2020.
