This year has not been an especially eventful year from the point of view of exhibitions. However, I do have one work on view at a venue in Budapest called the Bálna, or Whale – on the ground floor. This is a place run by a certain Mihály Lapú, who also puts on solo exhibitions for local artists. The interior venue of the gallery space, called Új Nesz, is very shabby chic, with old antique artifacts and furniture set against more modern-looking artworks. The Old Curiosity Shop.
There is also the possibility of a new society forming in the city for a small group of artists who meet together to hone their life drawing skills. The classes take place once weekly and afterwards there is usually a party involving food and wine. In the future there may also be the possibility of a group exhibition. I hope to have featured a few of my works – more on that if this does come into being.
Over the summer I have also been taking part in a new opportunity in Budapest to work alongside other artists in the open air and in front of the public, at the Gozsdu Court in the city centre. This is the Montmartre experiment. The venue is organised by the Ferdinand Gallery – here is their page on Facebook. The idea is that real artists will have the chance to connect with real people, as well as literally adding more colour to the ambience of the vicinity.
Do come and visit if you are in the area. I can update individuals locally on whther or not I will be there via my art page on Facebook.
