Currently on – Manuela Castro Martins, “Escultura”, from 9th of March until 3rd of April 2017
For the first time in São Mamede Art Gallery, we have the pleasure to exhibit the molten glass sculptor, Manuela Castro Martins.
Despite beginning as a lawyer, the works in glass were always present in the artist life. Started with decorative pieces for the hotels industry, then some trophies for very different and prestige competitions and awards ceremonies and since the beginnings of the XXI started participating in exhibitions not just in Portugal but all over the world.
The exhibition shows delicate and bright pieces on glass that reminds lace patterns in a unique way. Composed by many small pieces the public can catch a glimpse of really big works with almost 2 meters, and others medium sized like some of the Rosáceas collection and the extraordinary bowls.
An original and distinctive exhibition that you should visit!
