Carioca Impressions

Review by the art critic and journalist Oscar D`Ambrosio about Sandra Nunes paintings

"Plein Air Painting has a special poetic. It demands from the artist an extreme professionalism in search of more and more satisfactory results .Besides technique, it is essential a knowledge and understanding that art can come from the sensitive nature without being just a copy.When the motif is Rio de Janeiro, it is much more challeging, as here and read the full review...


Far and Near Horizons

TWO INTERNATIONALLY-KNOWN ARTISTS' ORGANIZATIONS have joined resources and talents to bring you a new kind of art exhibition. Landscape Artists International and International Plein Air Painters are both dedicated to promoting the art and careers of landscape painters around the globe. Now, possibly for the first time, artists themselves have organized a world tour that will exist simultaneously on the World Wide Web and in a series of international brick-and-mortar venues. We are excited about this new undertaking. We invite you to learn more about the tour and the participating artists on these pages, and then make plans to see the works in person at a venue near you.

Arte de Portas Abertas

This event takes place in Santa Teresa, a charming district in Rio de Janeiro where there is a great concentration of studios. Artists coordinated by Chave Mestra (Santa Teresa Visual Artists Association) open their door to public visitation on a scheduled weekend of the year. Exhibitions are held also in Cultural Centers.

Arte no Muro

This project was selected in a contest of a Hospital in Rio de Janeiro - Casa de Saúde São José - named "Art on the wall" I picked this theme because Largo do Boticário is one of the most beautiful bucolic sites of the city and is generally overlooked by the passersby. The place was named in the 19th century in honor of the apothecary (boticário) of the Royal family who lived there. Largo do Boticário features eight colorful houses exhibiting their colonial-style facades and roofs around a cobblestoned square shaded by ancient trees with the gentle murmur of the Carioca stream near a lovely patch of Atlantic Rain Forest. Long a magnet for well-known artists, over the years this square has hosted a wide variety of artistic and cultural events that attracted crowds of visitors to the district of Cosme Velho. The painting depicts the entrance wide open inviting unware passersby to share the peaceful atmosphere. The early morning light bathes the houses, the old fountain and spreads its golden rays on the ground.
