“Special moment in the morning” by Anke Punt Bach

Local artist Anke Punt Bach unveils ‘The Power of Imagination’ in Lagoa

An exhibition by German artist Anke Punt Bach will be unveiled at 6pm this Thursday (January 13) at the Manuela Vale Gallery of Lagoa’s Mestre Fernando Rodrigues Art School.

The exhibition, entitled ‘O Poder da Imaginação’ (The Power of Imagination), aims to inspire people to see the world around them differently or, in the words of the artist, “to show that creating something can be fun, edifying and take you on a journey to the land of imagination”.

Anke Punt Bach was born in Germany but lives in Carvoeiro, having started painting due to her passion for art, colours and nature.

Anke is inspired by the Algarvian coastline and uses materials she finds during her hikes to create her artworks.

“This is my third exhibition since we moved in 2019 to Carvoeiro, which I now call home. I love nature, teaching, painting and creating beautiful pieces which people can enjoy,” says the artist.

The exhibition will remain on display until February 18. It can be visited for free between Monday and Friday from 9.30am to midday and from 2.30pm to 5pm.
