APS – Ports of Sines and the Algarve Authority had sponsored this colorful group exhibition as one of its many events celebrating “Port of Sines Day” on the weekend of June 18.
The Port of Sines is located about 160 km to the south of Lisbon. It lies on the cross of the main international maritime routes – East West and North South. Its strategic location, along with its natural characteristics, allow the Port to be positioned as the great hub port of the Ibero-Atlantic front. (www.apsinesalgarve.pt)
This group exhibition had been organized by AEMLA, Assoçiaçᾶo das Escolas da Marinha Litoral Alentejano and offered 31 independent participants a perfect platform to present their extensive creative work:
Paintings, drawings, sculpture, wood-carvings, needlework, craft objects, and photographs.
As a member of AEMLA and in charge of the realization of the installation of this exhibition, it was an exciting and work-intensive task for me creating harmony in all the diversity of so many different creative objects…
But, after 5 days of brainstorming, hard work, great cooperation of the group and the generous logistic and PR support of APS, “Harmonia na Diversidade” was ready for the opening ceremony on Friday, June 17:
