Munich Artists Friday Gallery – Chris Tomas – Writer / Photographer

For the Friday Gallery project 3.0, Munich Artists will be selecting a Munich Artist and sharing their artwork in a gallery on our front page.  For October we chose Chris Tomas. Chris has a studio located at Max Weber Platz 9 in Haidhausen and her main art focus is photography.

Q: Why are you a Munich Artist?

A: I’m an artist so I can leave something in this world when I leave myself… one day.

Q:  Why are you in Munich, Germany?

A:  All my attempts to go away have failed. There is always some U-turn that brings me back to Munich.

Q: What is your favourite idiom?  

A: “Sitzfleisch”  = Sit-flesh.  Sitzfleisch is the ability to endure boring or difficult situations – or just long bar nights.

The following images will be in a gallery on the front page of Munich Artists during the Month of October.  If you would like to see more artwork by Chris Tomas, please let me know. If you would like to see a few more photos by Chris Tomas, visit her website.

The application form for submitting your work can be found here.  You must be an artist in Munich actively working as an artist and we must have met for you to be chosen. There are no exceptions.  If you have not met me, you are welcome to make an appointment for after November 10, 2015.  For this project, I will select only 12 artists and November is already filled.

The First Munich Artists Stammtisch May 2015

Last night we organised our first Munich Artists Stammtisch.  The purpose of the meeting was to discuss our current projects and to get feedback from artists regarding our current plans and what they want to achieve over the next year. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing our projects on the website and placing open calls for two of them.

The following Munich artists attended our first stammtisch:
