The Tempra Academy International Art Museum at Villa Messina, Rabat, was officially opened on August 31.
The museum in the reception area of the recently refurbished CareMalta elderly retirement home features a permanent exhibition of works by over 15 artists from four continents, including Giacomo de Pass, Manuel Felix Quintanilla, Turo Rizzo, Frank Hill and Lilika Papanicolaou.
The works were donated by Dame Françoise Tempra and her sister Mina Tempra on behalf of the Tempra Academy of Arts.
The sisters were also guests of honour at the inauguration ceremony, which was attended by numerous friends and fellow artists, including Marianne Zammit, Elizabeth Isabelle Borg and Joe Genovese, and Villa Messina’s management staff.
The Tempra Academy also donated several framed original paintings which are on sale at €150 per painting in aid of Living Waters to finance their projects in Ethiopia. The paintings may also be viewed on the Living Waters Facebook page.
Anyone interested to purchase a painting may visit the museum, open daily from 10am to 8pm.
