(…) This paint can,
With their cold blast,
Stir the soul Withers
Of indifference or acídia,
And launch to do
The soul of fallen hands,
And to ask if, doing
Things that defy.
(MELO NETO, 1975, p.19)
Modernity is a hurried train that carries the day by hardened stressful day tasks of life; distance us some ties, of friends, of family; and directs us to work, to stressful occupations that constantly charge and manipulate us. We remain so near equipment, we talked virtually, send photos, but much is being lost Embrace, Cuddle and a relaxed conversation, accompanied by a coffee.
Occasionally, the fast train, a stop is allowed. Break up then your machinery and abuts a small station, enabling the weary soul ease its efforts and its cargo. The unbridled journey slows, cool their engines, for to warm up the spirit. Can be between these stops an encounter with art and coffee. These everyday wanderings is the Cultural Gansaral, which houses a beautiful exhibition that unites Art, in Poetry and, especially coffee. The works on display, from 3 de Mayo, will be until the day 30 June on site.
The exhibition "Encounters - Coffee as Poetic Mediator" has works of known artists Fatima Lourenço, Graciela Wakizaka, Heloize Rosa, Isabel Puchini e San Bertini. Curated by Professor Dr. Norberto Stori, the exhibition also has a guest artist, Professor Alcindo Moreira Filho.
Are encounters with art, meetings with coffee, as a drink, but above all coffee, as raw material of painting artists. They are beautiful watercolor strokes, made with the own drink, with shades of brown. The innovative technique of the artists, the beautiful show leaves the impression that the colors of our country paid a visit in the art field.
And the coffee, which can heat conversations, heart and soul, You can also wake up the look for the Fair and an art that sought to dare. The exhibition will be on until Gansaral 30 of June. Who go there can appreciate fine art at the same time enjoy a delicious breakfast with good conversation.
