of larger artworks and book presentation

Town Hall Gallery in Cologne-Kalk: March 09 – April 03, 2020

Group exhibition with 36 artists from 26 countries (3 – 10 small-format artworks of each artist)

With special presentations by the award-winning artists Hyun-JIN Kim from Taiwan and Cleo Wilkinson from Australia. They each received the first jury prize for mixed media and print graphics in 2019 and an integrated solo exhibition as a reward.

The gallery in the town hall of the very lively district of Kalk is a well-known art center in Cologne. High quality art exhibitions regularly take place there and it is a well-attended art center, partly thanks to the various advanced evening courses that take place there almost every day.

In addition, 98 large-format pictures from 35 countries are shown by an on-screen presentation. They are published in the art gift book A Fine Art Journey”.

Each picture is shown for 30 seconds on screen. The film can be stopped or relaxing music added. There is also a list of all participants in this book project – on the wall.

The focus of this special small-format exhibition was on award winners and finalists, with invited guests also taking part. Many exhibiting artists are featured in our books “Excellent Art” and “Kunstretreat 2019”, which we also present in the exhibition.
