Permanent base for Algarve Artists Network

Members of the Algarve Artists Network (AAN) now have a permanent base to exhibit their works at the Galeria Studio 21 in Loulé.

The AAN will be running a series of exhibitions at the gallery featuring work from the 24 different artists that make up the ANN.

Portuguese artist Milita Doré, a member of the AAN which was founded in 2006, said: “We support each other through the exchange of ideas and skills. Now with a gallery dedicated to our work we are a much more visible presence in the Algarve.”

The Galeria Studio 21 is located along the castle walls in Loulé at 21 Rua Martim Moniz.

The gallery was once the studio workshop of the late painter Richard Smith and it is now on loan to the AAN as a benevolent gift.

The gallery is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10am and 1pm and is staffed by the artists.
