Don’t Miss Out: TEASE exhibit opening is next week!
Remember when we told you about the TEASE – Transatlantic Exhibition of Art in the South East exhibition opening? Well, it’s all taking place next week and we would hate for you to miss out!
When: Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Where: Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta Auditorium
We know we’ve told you all about this before but we thought we’d refresh your memory a little, and, if you’re new around here, we want to tell you all about it before you click that register here button – because you will be registering for this fab event straight away, right?
What’s it all about?
This transatlantic art road show is sure to tease your contemporary art taste buds! Five contemporary German-speaking artists, six days of travel throughout the Southeast and four pop-up art exhibits.
Make sure you don’t miss this exciting tour and the chance to engage in art discussions with the artists, get an introduction to contemporary German and Austrian art, and network with like-minded art-lovers at this great reception in Atlanta.
We have the pleasure of hosting the Atlanta leg of this event, along with the Consulate General of Germany in Atlanta. The hon. Christoph Sander, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Southeastern United States will open the event.
There are five artists, who are they?
Earlier this year, Klaus Becker, Honorary Consul of Germany in Charlotte, NC (www.klausbecker-clt.com), invited five established and promising artists from Germany and Austria to exhibit their works in this part of the States. This made their paintings and sculptures available and publicly accessible to people like you here in the Southeastern United States.
Bodo Berheide, (Wuppertal, Germany)
Bodo is best known for the eighteen-year-long world tour of his six ton sculpture Figura Magica, studied under Joseph Beuys at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and is now producing paintings and sculptures and showing his work in various exhibitions. www.bberheide.de
Christl Foetsch, (Vienna, Austria)
Christl has been devoted to painting for almost thirty years, attending several workshops and participating in numerous exhibitions throughout Austria. www.uschi-kirchhoff.de
Uschi Kirchhoff, (Munich, Germany)
Uschi’s art is inspired by the multitude of colorful, happy and fascinating impressions she encountered during her worldwide travel. www.uschi-kirchhoff.de
Dr. Birgit Wewers, (Witten, Germany)
Birgit, who has a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering, now focuses on her passion for art, creating complex paintings that deal with many themes, including ephemerality and transformation. She teaches art and painting classes. www.birgitawewers.de
Jonas Heinevetter, (Witten, Germany)
In his gallery “Himmelstropfen” (Pennies from Heaven), he exhibits his paintings and design, and teaches various workshops. Jonas creates art that is not only expressive but extremely diverse. The visual elements of his work, including form, color, and movement, help him express his inner self. www.ausdrucksvielfalt.com
