Details of our members’ current and upcoming Algarve exhibitions.

Current Exhibitions:

Our member Marc Thivierge is presenting a 3D virtual visual arts exhibition. 

Three Canadian citizens, a native Englishwoman living in the Algarve, and a Colombian man having taken roots in Portugal are united in an online exhibition. This groupe of artists are presenting a three-dimensional collective exhibition for the first time, each offering five works, hence the title – « 1 x 5 ».

Guarantied are bursts of light, shimmering colour twists, unexpected mouvements, a few unconscious turns of gestures, the purity of inspiration directly from the soul, and symphonies of allusions to nature. The desire of fusion, sensation, satisfaction and omnipresence is the basis of artistic creation.


Member Jean Davis will run two day encaustic training courses in May & June 2021. For further info and bookings please contact her via email: jeandavis247@gmail.com

Our member Cheryl Smith invites members and guests to their Church Walk and Lunch at Figs on the Funcho.  

“We set off on a guided 6km walk and follow the panoramic river Funcho to the iconic “church hill”. On the hill, a large picture-tiled plaque depicts the historic 1834 Sant’Ana battle. This shows the army positions and the site where they erected a field hospital. We have a very credible number of birds in this inland area and during one 2 hour visit, Vita Nativa, identified 41 different species so there’s more to find by our birdwatching guests! After admiring the gorgeous landscape with panoramic views of the scenery we will return to Figs on the Funcho to enjoy a leisurely lunch on the waterfront deck.  Those who do not wish to join the walk can arrive later for the brunch. The walk will take about 1h15 and it is an easy walk.”

Date: May 22, 2021
Time: 10h30 – 14h00
Costs: €35 per person
Lunch: Vegetarian. We cater for most diets, please let us know in advance.

Address: Figs on the Funcho, S.B. Messines, Algarve, Portugal
