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.
