Directions to LiR - Galeria de Arte gallery
Located in the Adega de Lagoa winery, which still produces local wines from several Algarve vineyards, LiR is not only an interesting gallery, it is also a superb events venue. The gallery’s exhibition centre is perched above the bottling and processing part of the co-op, its runways and corridors giving a view of the action below, making for a very unique ambience. There is a mix of sculptures, paintings and ceramics in spacious displays and excellent lighting. Against the dark, industrial background, the art seems to float in space and a visit to the gallery is like stepping into a cocoon of visual delight. There is seating scattered around the gallery, conducive to relaxation and contemplation.
LiR Galeria de Arte has ongoing exhibitions from a range of artists (check the Events tab for current and upcoming events) and the pieces on display are for sale. There are large installations as well as smaller, take-home pieces. The gallery can arrange shipping and delivery. You can browse their catalogue and buy online too. Regular visits to the gallery are a good idea – there are always new pieces and installations to enjoy.
As an events venue LiR is quite different. The artwork mixed with the industrial surroundings of the co-op, which has a long tradition in the region, together create a very distinct ambience, as unique as the art itself. The space itself is very large and there is a stage and seating area for live and streamed performances and presentations.
By the entrance to the main gallery area there is a welcoming café area with plenty of comfy sofas to relax in, as well as a sunny terrace where you can enjoy a cold drink. As with everything about LiR, you don’t find run of the mill drinks at the café. You can enjoy Teapigs teas or Surf Brewing craft beer here, brands showing sustainability and flavour can go together.
Entrance to the gallery is through the wine co-op shop. While entry is free, donations are welcome.
LiR Galeria de Arte is open Monday to Friday, 12:00h to 17:00h
LiR is located on the EN125 in Lagoa, close to Carvoeiro. There is ample parking onsite.
