Nativity scenes exhibition “O Menino Deus”, by the ceramists Delfim Manuel and Margarida Palma Gomes, is opening this Saturday, November 19, at 17:00, at the Palácio Gama Lobo in Loulé.

The way he combines expertise and delicacy has been recognised nationally, earning him several awards. His pieces are part of numerous handicraft collections and are frequently featured in individual and collective exhibitions all over the country.

Born in Silves, Margarida Palma Gomes is a reference in Algarve ceramics. Her work stands out for its colourful and enchanted vision of the themes she portrays, full of creativity and humour. She has won several regional awards and participated in national exhibitions and competitions, and her nativity scenes are highly appreciated by collectors.

The exhibition is open to the public until January 6, from 09:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday, and from 09:00 to 13:00, on Saturdays. Admission is free.
