Anke Punt Bach aims to encourage book-reading

A new exhibition by German artist Anke Punt Bach will be unveiled on Wednesday, May 4 at Lagoa’s municipal library at 4pm.

Entitled ‘The Magic of a Book’, it aims to inspire visitors to “read or discover the magic of books”. As the artist says, “adventure is just a page away…”

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.

She describes her work as “mixed media on different backgrounds,” having already presented several exhibitions in the Algarve.

‘The Magic of a Book’ features 31 paintings and can be visited during the library’s opening hours on weekdays from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm. The exhibition will remain on display until June 30.
