Last Day of my Exhibition at a Castle

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday was the last day of a show at a moated castle in Germany. Again there were many visitors to admire the works of some 30 artists in two large exhibition halls. The car park was always full.

The opening speeches on Saturday were by the deputy mayoress, the head of the arts council of the area, and the organiser of the exhibition himself a cartoonist. There was even a brass band.

The venue was well suited for the occasion. The old barn and a main building of the ancient moated manor were fitted with hundreds of paintings. So art lovers were able to see lots of different styles and motifs. There were many interesting conversations going on everywhere and numerous visitors decided to buy a painting.

My art was spotted by the local press who conducted an interview which gave me a very good review in the write-up. My live demonstration caused a lot of interest in my landscape paintings.

There was even a cafe manned by volunteers offering coffee and cake. Those who preferred more select surroundings for their tea were able to go to the restaurant across the yard.
