Rodrigo Ferreira and Paula Castro Freire Exhibition

09 Nov, 2017, 09:00 to 08 Mar, 2018, 18:00
Venue: Vale do Lobo Art Gallery

Explore the thoughtful paintings of Rodrigo Ferreira and the expressive sculptures of Paula Castro Freire during the latest exhibition at the Vale do Lobo Art Gallery from 9th November 2017 until 8th March 2018.

A selection of paintings by Rodrigo Ferreira and sculptures by Paula Castro Freire will be on display at the gallery as part of an ongoing collaboration between the resort and the famed São Mamede Gallery.

Rodrigo Ferreira was born in Paris in 1951 where he still resides and attended the École National de Beaux-Arts de Paris between 1969 and 1975. He has exhibited since 1967 in France and Portugal and his works feature in several private collections.

“Rodrigo Ferreira surprises us in the exhibition of his recent works with the transformation of his long-awaited paintings.  His paintings evolve from an aesthetic marked by the poetry of ruins, in almost deserted spaces, to a chromatic spatialism which often evokes Rothko in large bands of contrasting or similar tones”, said Maria João Fernandes.

Paula de Castro Freire holds a degree in Interior Architecture from the Faculty of Architecture of UTL and studied Drawing, Video, Photography and Sculpture.

She has worked as a graphic designer, in television and, at the invitation of the Jacques Delors Centre, painted tiles on "The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union" in Trancoso, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Ulgueira, Sintra and Loures.

Paula de Castro Freire has organised several Photographic Marathons, with the last one being in conjunction with the Olga Cadaval Cultural Centre and she has exhibited collectively since 1983, and individually since 1995.

Since the first exhibition of works from the São Mamede gallery was unveiled at the Vale do Lobo Art Gallery in October 2012 there have been a series of different exhibitions on display and the latest is a celebration of this partnership.

This exciting joint art and sculpture exhibition promises to be truly memorable, bringing together an exciting and thought provoking selection of works to the resort.

The exhibition will run from 9th November to 8th March 2018 at the Vale do Lobo Art Gallery (next to the Club of Clubs entrance) which is open from Monday to Friday from 09.00h until 18.00h with free admission.
