Exhibition inspired by Portugal wildfires

A Dutch artist who has lived in Portugal since 2003 is to stage an exhibition of a selection of 40 of his works, many of which were inspired by the tragic fires of Portugal, starting next week at the Gallery Espaço + in Aljezur.

Frederik Beerbaum, 72, works and lives in both the Algarve and in Amsterdam (Holland), and has more than once been moved by Portugal’s fiercest natural disasters to pick up his paintbrush and project his interpretation of them onto canvas. Last year, in August, after returning from a period in his homeland, Mr. Beerbaum was again inspired by calamity after seeing a picture on the front page of The Portugal News regarding the devastating Pedrógão Grande fires, and moved to create another series of works of art.
The exhibition, whose main body is named ‘The Moonlight Between Us’, will be inaugurated by the Commander of the local fire service, on 15 September, and runs until 26 October.

A series of 500 picture-cards have also been printed of the artist’s works, which will cost €5 each, and whose sale proceeds will be donated to the firefighters of Aljezur.
