Hallenburg Castle Exhibition Photos

Last weekend my friend Peter and I went to paint en plein air at Hallenburg Castle in Germany. We had been invited by the well-known artist Herdin Radtke who conducted an open air painting session with dozens of artists from all over Europe. At the same time there was a local arts market and festival.

While Herdin and his students were painting soap bubbles on canvas Peter and I had hired a booth at the arts market to paint and exhibit landscapes and hopefully sell some paintings.

Here are some photographs of the picturesque town and our booth at the market.

Although they call it Hallenburg Castle it should more suitably be called Hallenburg Manor. It is originally Baroque in style built between 1706 and 1712. The family donated the castle to the county of Hesse in 1954. For a number of years it was home to a grammar school and now houses the county´s music academy.
