9 May, 2019 What's On

On Saturday 11th of May 2019 the gallery LiR (Lady in Red) is hosting The Sovereign Art Foundation with live music in the Lounge from 12pm.  The prize-giving ceremony and auction of the artwork from the Student’s Prize Algarve 2019 will follow at 2pm.

Organised by Sovereign – Consultoria Lda. on behalf of the Sovereign Art Foundation the competition aims to promote art in schools to inspire and reward young artists in the community and to encourage cultural development whilst raising funds for charity.

The first and second prizes are selected by the judges and the third prize will be awarded to the artwork which has received the most votes from the public, both online and directly during the exhibitions. Prizes totalling 3,100€ will be awarded to the artists and their schools.

Following the prize awards, all the artworks will be auctioned to the public with the proceeds being divided between the artists and Silves Rotary Club that will use the funds as part of their School Art Projects – Art and Poetry workshops organized by local artists. 
Join the LiR team tomorrow at 12 pm to enjoy the live music and to attend the auction to bid for one of the artworks from the Algarve Prize or acquire one of the books to help raise funds!
