Artsy Events for October 9,10 & 11 – Get Your Sneakers on for a Marathon Weekend of Art

I don’t know why they do this…. have so many open studios in one weekend in October before the long night of the Museum but they do and I’m always scrambling to see as many as I can. Hopefully you will have time this weekend to visit some Munich Artists studios and see their current work.

Einladung LANDLUFT-1
C. Kirmse, Elsass & B. Auspitz, Chiemsee
  • If you like landscapes, you will enjoy this exhibition of Contanze Kirmse’s artwork at Vergolderei Ehmer, Notburgastr. 6, 80639 Munich, Germany.  Constanze and Brian Auspitz will be showcasing their artwork starting this Friday October 9, 2015 until January 2016.  The vernissage starts at 1830 and goes until 2100.
  • On Sunday, if you can still see straight, sit down and have a chat with Dinkela and Corinna Naumann, they will be having an artists talk on Sunday @ 1600.

If you are an artist and you want me to share your events, please make a Facebook event and invite Munich Artists or Emmy Horstkamp and I will add you to our event list. Make sure the event is public. I can’t add private events or events on private pages. (Create an art page for your art practice please.) I try and add the events to the website but that is a hit or miss depending on how busy my week is and how zen I am finding data entry.  This week data entry is a nice excuse to get away from the “Made Your Bed” installation which is overtaking my living space while I figure out the best way to “install” it.

NOTE: I will be at the FotoDoks Munich Raw workshop this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. Here is a link to Fotodoks. They will be having a documentary photo festival from the 13th -18th October. I will make a separate post later this week. I’m so excited about this workshop.  They have a waiting list so it is too late for you to apply (I did mention this earlier … maybe just on social media.. which is another reason for you to join us on Facebook.)  Fotodoks offers other workshops that may interest you. Let me know if you sign up for one.

Day 11 and We are Looking for Chairs – My Chair and Me is the Theme.

We are heading towards the midpoint of our challenge and the pressure is on to finish.  Munich Artists are not breaking a sweat and sent in lots of photos today of themselves with chairs.  If you want to join in on the fun, follow the themes on our 30 day self portrait challenge page.   Look forward to hearing about your work on our Facebook page.

Munich Artists Going to the MUC Food Lovers Market on Sunday Feb 15, 2015

On Feb 15, 2015 from 1100 to 2000, Munich Artists will be at the MUC food Lovers Market.  The following Munich Artists will be showcasing their artwork and interacting with visitors doing participatory art projects (projects will cost between 7 to 20 Euro).

  • Gabriele Rothweiler (Photograper/Painter) – Gabriele will have people jump on a trampoline and take photos of them flying. For Sunday, she will be printing them right on the spot with her portable printer for a small fee.  Here is an example of her work.
  • Andreas Hirsch is a creative working in various mediums. He will be selling screen prints and watercolours at the market but will be making buttons with visitors. Here is an example of one of his screen prints:

Angela Smets will be selling her illustrative blocks and small charms.

Manueal Illera will be displaying her linocut prints and charcoal drawings.

Move Over Flowers, Here come Munich Artists on Feb 15th with a Bunch of Food Trucks


Being an artist means you can grab hold of opportunities and take risks like going to the Blumenmarkt on Feb. 15th and selling artwork next to food trucks.   Will this work in Munich?  I don’t know.  If I were an accountant I might wait six months but being an artist, I can jump in with both feet.  For the first market, five Munich artists have been asked to participate and will be selling art at the food market from 1300 to 2000.  We will hanging out in the art section.  Will you come join us? You can find our Facebook Event page here with all the details about finding us.

The artists bringing artwork to the market are:

Gabriele Rothweiler (she will let you jump on her trampoline and then shoot you in the air) Gabriele will also have some of her photography/painting artwork on display.

Andreas Hirsch (He’s going to be the Button maker)  Andreas will have his illustrative work at the market. I’m so curious to see what kind of buttons people make.

Emmy Horstkamp (My Guardians are going to market) I will also have some of my digital prints with ink on display and a series of magnets I’m making like the ones I made for the theatre installation.

Manuela Illera (Linocut series) She will also have some charcoal drawings (we still don’t know how these sell in Munich. I’m very curious to see if she sells any of them. The linocuts are cool a photo booth with different sayings on them. ( I will post some photos on Facebook.)

Angela Smets (printing) Angela is an oil painter but when she isn’t in her serious art studio, she is busy making illustrations and printing them using all kinds of techniques.

If everything goes well on Feb 15th and the artists sell work, we might do it again.  The organisers are testing it out with us so keep your fingers crossed that the test is successful and everyone is happy when Feb 16th rolls around.

I think it is really funny that we started Munichartmarket.com and then get invited to sell art at a market.  I have no problems with this wonderful coincidence and hope these kind of opportunities keep showing up on our doorstep. Munich artists loves to have interesting opportunities to showcase Munich artwork.

What’s Happening with Munich Artists – September 17, 2014

This morning, I wondered what ransom I would need to pay to get the sun back from the fog. As I walked over the Isar, I saw this moody image of Munich and decided that the sun could stay away for a bit longer.

Art Challenge News:  Munich artists are doing a collage challenge. There were some images here but when I moved the blog they disappeared.  Maybe, someday, I will find them again.  If you want to look at our challenge work, please visit the challenge page.

We will be showing several of the collages on Friday at the Friday gallery in combination with Emmy Horstkamp’s T-project.   If you don’t know Emmy, come and visit the gallery on Friday and say hello.

Munich Artists News:

Munich Artist Brigitte Pruchnow is having a busy autumn.  Last weekend she attended the Rotterdam art fair and she has been accepted into a gallery in Japan (The gallery will be taking her artwork to a Tokyo art fair in the spring).  If you want to see Brigitte’s work, her art is scattered around Bavaria in group exhibitions like this one and she will be having a solo exhibition at the Friday gallery in 2015.

Roterdam Art Fair

If you have time this weekend, plan a trip to Landsberger Lech to visit the long night of art which starts at 1800 and goes until 2300. If you would like a brochure which includes a map you can download it by clicking 140825 Flyer Kunstnacht 2014.

Gabriele Rothweiler will be one of the 70 artists displaying work during the evening.  Her paintings will be on display at Asam-fashion in the Schlossergasse 376.  Gabriele will also have her artwork on display at her gallery during the open studios in Neuhausen if you don’t want to leave Munich this weekend or have made other plans for this Saturday.

Emmy Horstkamp will be showing the Title pages from her T-project at the Friday gallery starting on September 19th. The series is based on the idea that women like to see their romantic partners as projects to be fixed up or manipulated. The title pages are the initial architectural idea of what each man should be.  The series continues with a blueprint for each man and then the final man created in a mixed media format which may be nothing like the ideal (Just like the difference between what the architect designs and what the builders actually create.   The art pieces are made using photography, digital printing and acrylic paint on art paper and canvas.

Munich Artists Friday Gallery for June 27, 2014

I’m lucky to have a great selection of work this week from graffiti to jewellery created by artists in Munich. I spent the morning visiting Anne Trieba’s studio. Very talented woman and I look forward to seeing more of her work in the coming months.

Munich Artists Deconstructed Installation

The first Munich artists Installation was a success and it was great to see Munich artists collaborating for the pure joy of being creative.

Several of the artists who participated in the Munich Artists Installation brought more than one piece of art. Ines Seidel, who creates mixed media pieces, brought pages where she had cut out circles, boxes she’d made from books and a few mono prints.

Hazel Ang, who enjoys creating with oil on paper, brought three pieces of art which were political in nature. Hazel is a news junkie but she isn’t a political artist. The three canvases expressed her feelings but were tucked away in her closet where they took up valuable space.

For Hazel, taking her art pieces and using them to create a new art piece on Friday was Cathartic-A final release of the feelings trapped within the original art pieces. Although many of the artists found it exciting, energising and even cathartic to deconstruct, some artists were experiencing deconstruction for the first time and finding changing their perspective about their work challenging.

As we ripped and cut and glued canvas from various art pieces, one artist walked over with her canvas where she had created a small hole.   She was inspired to make the hole while watching us but when we talked with her about taking the canvas off the frame her eyes grew big.  She wasn’t ready to deconstruct her art piece and we didn’t push her.  This artist had taken the first step in releasing the reverence placed on a finished piece of art by altering the work she has laboured so hard to create. By the end of the evening she had made several more holes and her work was added to the window installation which is on display in Neuhausen for the next 8 weeks.

If you would like to see the installation, it is at the arthaus Neuhausen. http://www.arthaus-neuhausen.de/
