After the weather disaster of August 15th, rain and gale at Place aux Arts broke my frames. A lot of damage and an early end of exhibition for me. But repairs are in progress and I will show prints, etchings, collages and paper objects at the Rougemont le château creators’ market on August 31. This village was part of my adolescence and I will be happy to return to it. It is also the home of Bruno Geyer, gardener poet with his 900 watering cans. If he is well known here, he is also known by a lot of tourists. Discover his shop if you have never visited it !
At the moment, I am exploring other medias, watercolour, markers, textile inks and playing with spontaneous drawing…
while listening to ZAKOUSKA, a group of Strasbourg musicians. I love their music, advocating “mixing and meeting people”: gypsy tunes from Romania, jazz scoundrels from New York clubs, North African transes, it’s cheerful, creative, it makes you want to travel, it makes you happy !
I went to listen to them at the Moulin de Hundsbach in Sundgau (southern Alsace for those who are not from the area), a superb place that served as a setting for an exhibition of watercolours, painting and photography during a whole weekend and I was able to enjoy them. The party was there with flambé pie, beer and local pork. New edition next year at the same time for other exhibitions and always music and festive table. I will tell you more before the event.
A little glimpse of their music?
Situated in the old town of Belfort on the way to the citadel Meïka’s gift shop which has a half Japanese half Scandinavian atmosphere offers a charming nest to my prints. Thanks to Sylvie who is an expert in origami as well as a paper and colour lover !
Next Tuesday 15 August you will find me exhibiting my art work under my turquoise parasol at number 29 in the Souvenir square (along the savoureuse river, close to Monoprix store).
Waiting for you !
