About Maria Gertrudes

MARIA GERTRUDES COELHO, the Brazilian artist who produces original paintings in the styles of Joseph Turner, Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Renoir and a dozen
other great impressionists is back in the area to hold FREE public painting session followed by live or silent auctions. Proceedings go directly to a charity Foundation
(Fundação Jeronimo Mendonça) in the interior town of Ituiutaba, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, in support of educational efforts for local orphans and vulnerable
children and adolescents.

Each painting takes less than 5 minutes to materialize.  Maria Gertrudes paints with her hands and feet (oil on canvas), and her work is truly beautiful.  Each
session takes about 60 minutes, and she can paint up to 10-12 paintings per session, always a mix of different artists.

This is Maria Gertrudes' fourth visit to the great Washington-Baltimore area.  During her previous visits in 2001 and 2003 she performed over 20 sessions and
produced and sold nearly 250 paintings in various locations, including institutions such as the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. The funds
she's been able to raise with her paintings have allowed her to almost finish the construction phase of the Foundation, with 14 rooms and a large recreational area
dedicated to ongoing workshops organized by volunteers on all types of artistic and professional education. Maria Gertrudes has enchanted thousands of people
throughout the world with her phenomenal artistic gifts, producing over 4,500 paintings since 1996.  Her mission is to complete 5,000 paintings, and this feat will be
achieved this year.  
THE WASHINGTON POST dedicated half a page to her work in the Arts Session, published in July 12, 2001.

MARIA GERTRUDES will be presenting to the public (FREE ADMISSION) on April 16 for the first time in Baltimore.
April 15-23 & May 8-10, 2005
Mission Accomplished !!!
5,000 Paintings

Maria Gertrudes is back from Brazil, and this might be your last chance to purchase one of her beautiful paintings.  
Maria Gertrudes started to paint in 1996, divinely inspired by Joseph Turner, and at the time she was told that her mission was to complete 5,000

All proceedings from the auctioning of the paintings after public sessions are applied to the construction of the "Fundacao Jeronimo Mendonca"
in the town of Ituiutaba, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, dedicated to providing artistic (professional) and spiritual education to underprivileged
children (ages 6-17).  

This mission will be complete on May 5th, 2005, in Seoul, South Korea, thanks to the kind invitation from Avatar Miss Moon, responsible for
taking His Holiness the Dalai Lama to his first visit to Korea.  

Maria Gertrudes produces original paintings in the style of Joseph Turner, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Picasso and a dozen other great
impressionists.  She paints with her fingers and feet (oil on canvas).  Each painting takes 2-5 minutes. Her work is phenomenally fast and truly
beautiful.  Each painting session takes 60-90 min (10-12 paintings per session).

This might be the last time that  Maria Gertrudes comes to the US to paint.
No one knows what will happen to her painting gift once she completes her mission.

Maria Gertrudes will be presenting in several locations during her stay in the US, such as Baltimore, Falls Church and Bowie, MD.
