It was with great joy that Holger and I saw so many people coming to the finissage of our exhibition at Martas Café. A lot of people were already there, studying or having fika, and soon enough it was hard to tell who was there before and who came on purpose for the finissage. Still, they were welcomed into the crowd, just as we had wanted.Holger put up a few more originals on the wall, even though it was supposed to be the last day. Turned out that the girl who was going to exhibit after us didn’t have her paintings ready yet, so we decided to keep our stuff a week longer. Our finissage turned middlessage – if such a thing exists.There were drinks and snacks all around (including Suzanne’s delicious pesto crackers), topped of with twenty-something pastéis de nata Patrícia and me had brought from Lisboa (all gone in the picture in little under a quarter of an hour – great success!), the party hung on for as long as the Café was open.Many many thanks go to the Café’s staff who were extremely helpful and part-time curators of the exhibition: Marta, Olga and all the good people working there!
