And..... more news!!!! This time it's BIRD ART INSTALLATION PROJECT.
All dutch, belgian and german birds can be shown for 2 months at GALERIE/ATELIER ORANJEHOF, Vullingsweg 54, HEERLEN.
Looking at the FB-comments so far: it will turn out just fine. :-)
But: other great ideas are coming. Just wait and see!!!! :-)
(November 17th, 2012)
WHAT A SPLENDID DAY IT HAS BEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The first exhibition of the GOGYOSHI ART PROJECT has taken place. #Loods32 was an excellent place to display the 77 artworks by 36 dutch artists who were inspired by 10 poems of 1 man: Taro Aizu.
The official opening was done by Jop Fakkeldey, alderman of Culture of the city of Lelystad, the Netherlands.
Here's a video André Broens made of the event. I think it's great!
We had a lot of visitors, some say even up to 200. I didn't count them but I was surely overwhelmed to see so many visitors attendeing this first of hopefully at least 12 exhibition throughout the Netherlands.
I have informed 4 Japanese newspapers about this exhibition and I hope they will place an article about the project. Thanks to Chiuyky Itoga for bringing the Japanese newspapers to my attention.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Fred van Welie, Iris van 't Bosch, André Broens and all of the Flevolandteam to turn this exhibition into something great and beautiful. Also a big thank you to Jasminka for making the most delicous sushi and cakes and other delicous things. Iris even gets another big hug for making two beautiful books of all the A4 which participants donated to the project. Both books were sold by "silent auction". That's a great idea, which I would like to continue at every exhibition, but first I have to clear that with Iris.
Soon a lot of photos will be shown on the Gogyoshi page of this website.
(November 15th, 2012)
GOGYOSHI ART PROJECT made the newspapers!!!
(November 13th, 2012)
It's been a while since the last NEWS-update.
Here are some important dates for my projects.
This evening Peter Widdershoven and I will have a final look at the book for PROJECT GIES ART TRIBUTE. We will order the books too.
December 9, 2012 the artists involved in the project come together at Galerie3G, Sittard. They will receive a copy of the book.
All other people who are interested can sign in at the gallery to buy a copy.
PMAB at GALERIE DE ETAGE, GORINCHEM:
this week I mailed the participants to make sure their booklet will "in da house" in december. The exhibition in Gorinchem will be held at Galerie De Etage, starting January 19, 2013 with Gorinchembased artists or artists who are somehow related to Gorinchem.
January 17 I will bring the booklets to Gorinchem and right afterwards I must be travelling to Wageningen!!! Just another day on the road, so it seems. When if all goes well, the Gogyoshi Art Project will open it's second display of artworks at Wageningen University. Hopefully the Ambassador to Japa in the Netherlands will honour us not only by visiting the display but also we hope he will open this event. Fred van Welie, the artists, the university and of course myself will be truly honoured if he were to do so. Let's all hope for a sparkle of magic.
PMAB at GALERIE ARTROOM, ROERMOND:
Opening december 2nd.
