Our Easter Exhibition is now open!

We are delighted to be back at the Hotel Carvoeiro Sol – right beside the beach in Carvoeiro – with an exhibition of brand new work showcasing a range of modern acrylic and oil paintings, photographic art and prints. Jazz musician Cory Sea is also launching his new album and will be playing live at the exhibition.

Following our almost sell-out success of our last exhibition, we are pleased to return to the Hotel Carvoeiro Sol again this Easter, and this time we have invited two new upcoming and exciting artists to join us; we are delighted to be welcoming Lesley Goldie and Cory Sea to exhibit with us in our`pop-up´ gallery in the hotel.

Lesley Goldie likes to depict the passage of time through detail and texture as a way of preserving the memory of the ‘Old Algarve’. Her paintings lead you in, allowing your imagination to take you to places beyond the ruined and abandoned, detailing the history of times past and a way of life almost forgotten.

Cory Sea’s art is inspired by the play of light in nature.  He enjoys working with colours that are both deep and rich. Sometimes his images are quite realistic, but others are more abstract.  He hopes, though, that all of them will uplift and inspire their viewers.

Dave’s photography reflects the beauty of the beaches, landscapes and people of the Algarve. He produces sharp and clear images which are full of light and atmosphere.

I will again be showcasing a new series of her modern and graphic ‘New Wave’ style acrylic paintings for this show. My work is strong and lively, combining intricate detail with bold and unique waves of colour. There will also be bright flower paintings displayed and a range of well-priced small gifts for sale – there is something for everyone to enjoy! My paintings continue to be very competitively priced, with prices ranging from 80 to 150 Euros.

There are lots of small gifts and prints available too – the perfect gift!

Cory Sea Bright Timing CD

We are also delighted to announce that Cory will also be launching his latest album `Bright Timing´ at the exhibition – and even playing live during the week. As well as being a fantastic photographic artist; he is best known for his jazz guitar and live performances here in the Algarve and the launch of his latest album promises to be a real bonus at the exhibition. He will definitely be playing live from 1-3pm on Sunday the 5th April and also hopefully during the week.

Cory Sea fell in love with the guitar when he was six years old and taking lessons in New York City. His career as a jazz musician spans several decades and has included opportunities to play in the USA, Australia, South America and Europe. Currently, he lives in Ferragudo and plays with the New Orleans Jazz Band as well as in many venues across the Algarve. ‘Bright Timing’ is his fourth CD.

Our motto at our ‘pop-up’ galleries continues to be “Affordable Art for All to Enjoy” – so why not come over to the Hotel Carvoeiro Sol between now and next Wednesday the 8th April – we are open every day from 10am – 5pm.
