Visit to Serralves Foundation

I have been privileged to view some of the best art at Serralves Foundation in Porto. The exhibition includes new and fascinating work by WeiWei and some disturbing sound pieces by Pedro Tudela. I left this breathtaking and touching experience on ‘soft legs’ and with a head full of new ideas and inspirations.

Beautiful Colombian Girl Waiting for Love

This is a portrait of a sensitive and fragile Colombian girl living a long way from home. She is determined and focused, planning for her future, but wishing to be loved in an environment that is harsh and unfeeling. Her ephemeral youth and perfection will vanish with transience of life. Will her dreams and desires be fulfilled in the passing of time?

I have supported my painting with two video experimentations, which bring the character to life.

In the History – Exhibition at The Artist Lounge

Dear Artist,

It’s our pleasure to announce that our “In the History” Group Exhibition is coming up – and we are sure it will look phenomenal!

If you are receiving this email, it’s because your artwork has been received at the gallery and has been successfully installed in the exhibition.

The exhibition will run from the Saturday (31/07/21) to the following Saturday (07/08/21), and is being held at King House Gallery (7 The Minories, off Henley Street, CV376NF). If you are driving, the closest car park is the “Windsor Street Shoppers Car Park”, 21 Windsor St, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6NL. Access to the gallery is through The Minores entrance, right in front of the Shakespeare Birthplace on Henley Street.

The opening event will happen on Saturday (31/07), with live music (violinist) from 11.30 am to 2.30pm, and a professional photographer from 11am to 4pm. We have a gorgeous backdrop on the exhibition floor, and would love to take several photos of you with your friends/family there – as well as ones of you with your painting, of course! 

If you have any COVID symptoms, please do not attend the event and self-isolate as recommended by current guidelines.  

The forecast for Saturday is warm but rainy (but then again, it’s England, we only going to know for sure on the day). But fingers crossed we get to get an alright weather, as it makes a significant difference for events’ footfall on weekends. The Ads are out to get us as many visitants as possible, and we can’t wait to see how it goes.

Between the 2nd to 6th of August, it’s required booking to visit the gallery. Private viewings during the week are still free and can be booked on this link: https://www.theartistlounge.org/inthehistory-exhibition

The final day is on Saturday, the 7th of August. For the Saturday, bookings are not required. Everyone is welcome to visit from 10am to 5pm.
