The Estação Art Gallery presents an exhibition which brings together three artists from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais who work with sculpture in wood. Artur Pereira, Geraldo Teles de Oliveira and Jadir João Egídio are the players in this exhibition which stresses, first and foremost, the greater proximity between the human being and nature, and also the plastic sensitivity of creation.

(1913-1990) and Jair (1933) are artists dedicated to arts with religious themes, such as elements of Catholicism, Native Brazilian myths and Afro-Brazilian religions. What: Three Mineiro Artists.
