The exhibition is taking place at Galeria de Arte, Largo Cidade Vitoria, Junta de Freguesia de Cascais and is free entry. Most notably, there is a large painting of the inlet at Santa Marta that is up for sale by silent auction to raise funds for Cercica. Bidding can be done at the gallery or directly with the Freguesia by email: Ce.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The eight artists involved in this project each painted part of the scene individually and then put it together to create a very interesting and delightful painting. Each part of the scene has been painted in the individual style of the artist so this makes it a unique work of art. We also wondered if some of the local hotels and restaurants might be interested in bidding for the painting to decorate their premises.
Cercica is a charity that provides children and young people who have learning difficulties with education, social interactions and some opportunities for employment, they also have a residential wing for adults. The charity would like to be able to buy another mini bus for the adults and children and improve the workshop facilities.
