OPENING OF THE ARTIST’S STUDIO BARCELONA

17 04 2007

The Artist’s Studio  is going to present its first exhibition on May 10th 2007 at 19.30 h – 22.00 h in Barcelona, Calle Roca y Batlle, 5.  The creation of an artwork being the main preoccupation of an artist, the question of what happens afterwards remains vast. Galleries are the one  and  almost the only way to get in touch with the art market and the public, but access to the galleries is difficult, visitors are scarce, sales as well. Most artists have to give up their art or compromise with a job, which takes away most of their time, if not their energy. Knowing about all these and many more obstacles, Annette Mann (artist), Silke Seidel (art historian and art consultant based in Frankfurt/Germany) and a loose group of art involved people have decided to join their forces to add a drop on the hot stone: giving artists the chance to show their work in the artist’s studio in a more personal atmosphere and mixing the genres, combining art and design, with the perspective of different styles and worlds contributing to each other.  Additionally and to encourage the visitor to start his own collection, all artists are asked to create an affordable variety respecting their personal way of expression.
