tapestry by Françoise Devroede.jpeg

Artistic first in the Algarve

High-warp tapestry artist Françoise Devroede will be exhibiting her wall tapestries in the Aderita Artistic Space art gallery in Almancil from May 6.

Françoise Devroede has been creating high-warp tapestries for over 30 years. She is one of very few weaver-designers – artists who not only conceive but also carry out their own projects, in order to better translate their own sensitivity into their work, ensuring a greater freedom of expression.

Françoise Devroede belongs to a new generation of artists who perpetuate this traditional art that made the reputation of Flanders in the Middle Ages.

She was student of Marce Truyens, Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. Her works have been exhibited in Belgium, Portugal and the USA.

All her tapestries are unique works of art. Classics in their materials and weaving technique, they are resolutely contemporary in their design. The play of shapes, curves, colours and reflections transcends the objective reality, loading it with mystery.

The exhibition will be inaugurated at 6pm on May 6 and will run until the end of the month (open from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6.30pm).
