Ferrol, 12th June, 2019
The Port Authority of Ferrol-San Cibrao organizes an exhibition of children and youth illustration that brings together the works of 17 Galician artists under the title of “Vaidemar”. The drawings that are featured in books and stories for children are works of art with their own identity. Therefore, The Port of Ferrol wants to highlight their value by hosting this sample in the exhibition hall of the dock of Curuxeiras. The opening of the exhibition is this coming Friday at 12:00.
The curator of the exhibition Vaidemar, Antonio Seijas, explains that the selected works are thought as “looks to the sea” and that this is the common theme of the entire exhibition. Regarding the criterion to choose the illustrators, Seijas says that several factors were taken into account such as the fact og whether the authors had published work from the year 2000 until now. Miguelanxo Prado, Xan López, Kiko da Silva and Suso Cubeiro are some of the illustrators who will show their works inspired by the sea.
The exhibition can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. until 30th June.
