art breaks opening and christmas craft
I'm star no 1 :) on the invitation card, Korsgatan 3. Fellow "Art break" vitrine artists are: Jan Persson, Stig Lindholm, Jan Persson, Michel Droetto, Elisabeth Carlsson, Britt Ignell, Adrienne Riseley, Emma Ströde and Per Peterson. Couldn't find links from all, will show photos.
Our "Art breaks" opening this afternoon is followed by the official opening of the whole Christmas City event (info in Swedish and English). It will take off with a sound and light show on the facade of the Art museum. The whole inner city will be beautifully illuminated until New Year, quite spectacular (lot's of LED lights I was told, or it wouldn't be OK with the sustainable profile Göteborg also aims for). I promise to bring camera along at all times.
Group show at KC Väst, this year's new members, opens Saturday with a few of my pieces in it. My little image is no 3 from the left in top row.
To be a group show it looks surprisingly collected, nice job by fellow exhibitors hanging the show! KC Väst, who runs the gallery, is a member's organisation promoting visual artists in West Sweden, links to many of them here.
Chokladfabriken ceramics, their photo
More craft in Göteborg this weekend: HDK, School of design and craft, student's Christmas market from Friday afternoon to Sunday. See what is for sale, like Sandra's softies.
At Chokladfabriken, Paternostergatan, a former chocolate factory turned into ceramic studios, Ann-Louise Gustavsson, Ingela Jonasson and Eva Zethraeus have Christmas-open studios Saturday and Sunday, 12- 17 both days.
Here, again, addresses to lots of other Christmas craft events in Sweden.
Now I'm off for afternoon opening mingle, wish you a weekend full of joy and light!
