Arts Weekend on Fogo Island

Fogo Island Arts is delighted to host our first ever annual Arts Weekend from May 16-19, 2019. The event is an initiative to establish a contemporary art and ideas-focused weekend of special events, guest speakers, programs and exhibitions. Led by Fogo Island Arts, the Arts Weekend will also involve community members and organizations to establish an island-wide confluence of artistic activities.

Hosted by Nicolaus Schafhausen and Zita Cobb, the weekend will feature a selection of four distinguished speakers and open studio visits by our artists-in-residence. Furthermore, there will be an exhibition at the Fogo Island Gallery by Canadian painter, Brenda Draney.

Upwards of 15 local artists, craftspeople and performers will be showing their work in a multitude of contexts including site-specific interventions, occupations of heritage buildings, and independent exhibitions.
