Local artist exhibits paintings at Lagoa library

An exhibition of paintings by Lagoa-based artist Inna Hawker will be inaugurated at 4pm on Monday, February 4 at Lagoa’s municipal library, where it will remain on display until March 8.

Entitled ‘Natural Essence’, the exhibition will showcase many of the self-taught artist’s works.

The library’s opening hours are between 2.30pm and 7pm on Monday and between 10am and 7pm from Tuesday to Friday.

Inna Hawker is a self-taught artist who was born in Ukraine in 1981 and moved to Portugal 10 years ago.

“I have loved art since I was young and when I later became a school teacher, I found art very helpful in my work with children. Four years ago, I had a strong feeling that I had to start painting, simply because I had so much to say to the world,” she says.

“Painting is a wonderful way to express myself. My work is about true love and the energetic connection between man and woman. There is a deep connection between nature, the cosmos and the soul, and they bond together to tell the story about who we are deep inside ourselves.”
