Faro art

Downtown Faro has become an extension of the Centro Cultural de São Lourenço (CCSL) in Almancil, hosting an art show called Arte Top until January 5.

Eight shops in the area have the works of eight artists on show in an initiative that aims to attract more customers to the commercial area in the city through culture.

Among the artists showing their works are Portuguese artists José de Guimarães, João Cutileiro, Carlos Gervásio and Nuno Santiago, the Belgian Jean-Marie Boomputte, the Spaniard Alfredo Garcia Revuelta, the Russian Igor Oleinikov and the Frenchman Philippe Claisse.
