Galeria Pontes is works with news and highlights two new artists (Alcides Santos and Fé Córdula) and other works by Mestre Cunha, Oziel, Jotacê and Marcos Paulo. The first is Alcides Santos was born in 1945, in Recife, PE. He began painting in 1969, encouraged by the painter Antonio Cavalcanti, who teaches you technical guidance. Accurately reflecting the magic of this instinct painter Northeast, Olivio Tavares de Araújo wrote: "There is no doubt that his art reflects ominously deep and fathomless worlds. As the oldest, their works show themselves troubled and gloomy."

The second is Francisco de Assis Córdula was born in Rio Grande do Norte in 1933 and has been living in Goiânia since 1974.He is a painter, sculptor and self-taught sketcher, having participated in numerous exhibits. Many important art critics have written about this artist’s work, among them João Evangelista Ferraz: “The magnificent pictorial works of Fé Córdula fully reflect, in a pure and objective manner, a profoundly illuminated symbiosis of faith, work, religiousness and very high creativity”. 

Also highlights works of José Francisco Cunha, known as Mestre Cunha, was born in Ipojuca, Pernambuco and now lives in Jaboatão dos Guararapes. His works are generally toys (cars, airplanes, ships, animals), made with exceptional quality, original in their conception and in the materials used: wood, wire, glass, mirrors, pet bottles, nails, modeling clay, oil paints. He participated in several exhibits and has works in the Museum of the Northeastern Man, in Recife.

Oziel Dias Coutinho is a Paraiban from Itabaiana, born in 1960. He always lived in the lands of the agreste (desertified regions of the Brazilian Northeast), starting his work on wood as a rustic furniture carpenter, a profession that awakened in him the talent for sculpting animals and persons. His work reflects the hardships of the place he lives in: emaciated dogs, goats, donkeys. Yet, this very environment inspires him to create flowers and sensuous women as themes.

Jotacê is the artistic name of Jiovaldo Chaves Araújo, a pottery artist who lives and works in Chapada Diamantina, Bahia. Renowned for his work on slate tablets extracted from the region he works in, Jotacê shapes human figures, birds and plants from the beautiful scenario of the Chapada. His works appeared in the Folk Art Module at the Mostra do Redescobrimento, implemented in 2001 at Parque do Ibirapuera, São Paulo. Collectors all over the country covet them.

The other artist is Marcos Paulo Lau da Costa, born in 1974 in Sertânia, which lies in the interior of Pernambuco region, is an important representative of the production of wood carvings, especially elongated and slender. Loaded with drama, its peasants and migrants with soft and languid shapes give the impression of being constantly on the move.
