A presentation of the book “Evelí Adam. Roots and Branches of an Artist” took place on April 15, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. in the beautiful surroundings of Torre Mossèn Tor de Campdevànol, in Ripoll (Ripollès), Girona, Catalonia, Spain.
The author of the book is Joan Mañé Fort , the acclaimed painter and art critic.
The biography of Evelí Adam has been published by Oliveras publishing house. The book reviews not only his career but also his life, a key element in understanding his work.
A presentation took place with a large public attendance, with more than three hundred and fifty people, and with the musical performance by the Derry Bellow group. There was also a raffle for a painting by the sculptor Evelí Adam among the public attending the book presentation event.
It was an endearing event in an idyllic place for a book presentation – the Torre de Mossèn Tor restored by Evelí Adam himself.
The Mossèn Tor Modernist Tower is a new cultural and social space in Campdevànol open to citizens. This tower that erected in 1924 has been closed for almost 40 years. A group of volunteers from the town led by Evelí Adam have renovated it to become an artistic space that serves to promote the town and local culture.
The book has a price of 15 euros and can be purchased at various points of sale.
