Hector Ramsay Art Exhibition at Vale do Lobo

Lifelines contemporary art exhibition at the Vale do Lobo Art Gallery 3rd November 2016 until 31st January 2017

Vale do Lobo will feature a collection of art works from contemporary artist Hector Ramsay during the upcoming Lifelines exhibition held between 3rd November 2016 and 31st January 2017.

“Lifelines” is the latest exhibition at the Vale do Lobo Art Gallery and features a selection of drawings by the artist who has been inspired by his time in Portugal and in Italy where he finds the great masters truly inspire him without ever losing his own voice and expression.

Hector Ramsay is a Scottish-born artist living in Florence, Italy, who began his training in 1985 under Leonard Pardon in London. In 1995, he specialised in the ancient art of fresco painting, participating in the leading course of its type in the world, at the Laboratorio Per a fresco Tintori in Vainella, Prato, Italy. Upon graduation, he moved to Florence where he further deepened his skills of the old technique of gilding, and in 1997 he returned to Vainella to further his studies of auxiliary tempera painting.

His style has developed to include the complete spectrum of fresco and mural techniques - from Roman fresco painting to early Renaissance and Baroque, as well as reinterpreting his expertise in a contemporary fashion. He has completed many works for private clients in Italy, Great Britain, Portugal and the U.S., and is a regular participant in International Competitions. In 2002 he was awarded the Silver Medal at the prestigious "Omaggio a Masaccio" in Valdarno.

The exhibition provides the ideal opportunity for visitors to the Algarve to be able to sample a selection of contemporary art by an acclaimed international artist.

The Hector Ramsay exhibition, organised in collaboration with the Galeria São Mamede, will be open to the public from 3rd November until 31st January 2017, Monday to Friday from 10.00h to 19.00h.  A full programme of events at Vale do Lobo is available from the Resort Reception.
