Time for a break

The last months have been quite busy with artist tours and exhibitions, so I am taking a break and will soon be on my way to my studio in Spain.

Plenty of sun, good food and surely some rest … But also some painting, won’t be able to stop myself.

See you all back end of July and wishing you fine summer holidays too !

 

Open Atelier Ternat 2017

Open Atelier Ternat 2017, de eerste keer dat kunstenaars in Ternat hun deuren open zetten voor een open atelier route!

Deze eerste Open Atelier Ternat route zal doorgaan op 19-20-21 mei 2017.
Tot nu toe “verborgen” pareltjes hebben zich enthousiast ingeschreven voor deze eerste Open Atelier Ternat route. Zowat alle kunstdisciplines komen aan bod: schilderen (zowel figuratief als abstract), keramiek, beeldhouwen, fotografie,…

De Open Atelier Ternat route zal bestaan uit 2 delen.

Met dank aan de gemeente Ternat, wordt er een overkoepelende groepstentoonstelling georganiseerd in de publieke ruimte van ons nieuw gemeentehuis.
Deze groepstentoonstelling start op vrijdag 21 april 2017 met een vernissage. Ze loopt door tot met het Open Atelier Ternat weekend. Er zal 1 werk van elke deelnemende kunstenaar tentoon gesteld worden. Folders met routeplannetjes zijn beschikbaar.

De groepstentoonstelling wordt gevolgd door het Open Atelier Ternat weekend op 19-20-21 mei, waar de kunstenaar zijn/haar atelier openstelt voor de kunstliefhebber en hem/haar meeneemt in zijn/haar kunstbeleving.

Mijn atelier bevindt zich Rozenstraat 25 – 1742 Ternat

Van harte welkom!

Works on Yupo paper

They are finally ready… 5 small works on yupo paper.

It took me quite some time to finish these, but recently I managed to do the final tweaks and they are ready now!

I started those ages ago, and left them unfinished, didn’t quite knew what to do with them. Then a few weeks ago, I found them, more or less by accident, in a pile of other unfinished works on paper. They looked promising, and I decided to add a few lines and shapes of color. I started to like where they were heading… and I responded. They are done now!

 

Invitation: I am guest artist at the ‘Open House’ event of Lydia Smets

The last weekend of October, I’m the guest artist at Lydia Smets’ Open House event.

Lydia creates unique and surprising glass sculptures with her own modern glass kiln. Some of her works can be viewed at http://glaskunst.tumblr.com
She opens her house and atelier to the public that weekend and invited me to exhibit some of my paintings for that occasion, which I will gladly do.

We invite you to pay us a visit !

Yesss… my new storage racks installed

Finally, I have custom sized storage racks installed by a local carpenter.

I am very happy with them!

Now I can easily store my paintings and keep them separated from each other. This was a big problem with the previous storage solution, where I needed to put something in between works to avoid clinging to each other. It was not easy to take a painting out to show it to people, but now… I just slide it out!

Exhibition CC Asse

Some pictures of the set up of the exhibition and the opening reception.

It was fun and challenging to make an interesting combination of Liliane’s figurative work and my abstract paintings, but we did it!

The exhibition ends on 22 May, so only one week left if you want to visit it.

 

Invitation to the exhibition ‘A visual conversation’

Starting Thursday 28 April, the duo-exhibition A visual conversation of Liliane De Koninck & Linda Coppens will be hosted in the Cultural Center of Asse, Huinegem 2-4, 1730 Asse (Belgium).

You are cordially invited to the Opening reception on Thursday 28/4 at 19h30.
Guido Verhaeghe, eredirecteur of the Portaelschool Vilvoorde/Belgium, will be the guest speaker.
The exhibition is open until 22 May 2016 and can be visited during opening hours of CC Asse, which you can find here http://www.ccasse.be/openingsuren

 

Ugallery spotlight

Ugallery accepted my work!

My work is on Ugallery now…

Ugallery… I applied and was accepted and here is my portfolio !

This is a virtual gallery with offices in New York City and San Francisco. They opened their virtual doors in 2006 and just keep growing and growing…

In June 2015, an interview with the gallery director Alex Farkas was published in Forbes.

Alex says “UGallery is shaking up the art industry. In the past, art was a black box – brick and mortar galleries tended to be intimidating and there was little price transparency. Generally, people who bought art were collectors with deep pockets. We created UGallery to flip the industry on its head and make art accessible to everyone. Our expansive online storefront features professional artists from around the world, offering clients a diverse range of art at accessible prices. Regardless of where a client is located, they can own an original piece by a professional artist.” You can read the full interview here.

Ugallery is very selective about their artists, so I am very happy to be part of them!

Their panel of curators selects each artist and every piece they exhibit. The curators are art business professionals who select the highest quality work for exhibition. Customers can buy with confidence.

Currently they represent about 500 artists. This is way less than most online galleries who take on almost everybody without any selection,  just providing a portfolio “window”.

My works on Ugallery are exclusively available there, you won’t find them anywere else.

Wedding & Gift Registry

Oh, and another thing I did not see yet on other online galleries…

They have a Wedding & Gift Registry to provide an original, personal, and timeless option to celebrate a special occasion.

Ugallery represents a curated selection of original art by top emerging artists. A host can choose artworks for their registry across a range of prices, styles, and mediums.

Guests have three options for gifting off the registry: buy an artwork, contribute an amount to an artwork (“group gifting”), or purchase a gift card.
