Spirit of art with St Dominic’s

news: Spirit of art with St Dominic’s

CASA DE SANTA RITA in Colares was the setting for an exhibition of paintings, drawings and ceramics, sponsored by St Dominic’s School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and GlobalTalk. British Ambassador to Portugal, John Buck, officially opened the exhibition and commented on the high standard of the works on display. Catarina Castro Freire was the main organiser of the exhibition and Salim Patel, president of the PTA, came up with the idea of showing the works of talented artists connected with the school in celebration of its 30th anniversary. The Resident spoke to Salim, who told us he was planning another exhibition to include a wider variety of arts and involve other international schools in the Greater Lisbon area. He can be contacted via email [email protected] or call 969 111 738. The exhibition is on until March 20, from 2pm to 7pm. Ten per cent of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the school’s fund.
