Dear faithful visitors of the Gallery,
As you know, my husband and I are pleased to participate every year in the German art fair “Art Karlsruhe”. Since its creation in 2004, this art fair receives more than 50,000 visitors per year and welcomes renowned German institutions. Over the years, it has become a real institution in the German art scene. Initially planned as every year in February, it was postponed to May due to the pandemic and then, we have just learned, somewhat unsurprisingly, that it has finally been cancelled for this year 2021.
For our 6th participation in “Art karlsruhe 2021” we had planned to increase our exhibition space to 175m2 with a 100m2 stand dedicated to two sculptors and a 75m2 stand dedicated to our contemporary painters and photographers.
And to highlight French know-how, a special place at the entrance of the fair was attributed to a 3m20 high sculpture entitled “Henry’s Column”, a technical feat created by our sculptor Bruno Bossut as a tribute to the famous French tightrope walker Henry’s (1931-2013).
We and our artists are obviously disappointed not to be able to show their creations, which we are proud to exhibit and defend every year.
However, neither Art Karlsuhe, nor the participating galleries are stopping there and in the meantime, we are all working in close collaboration, in order to introduce in May 2021 a digital version which will never replace the physical contact but which will have the benefit of allowing us all to remain in close contact, while waiting for the next physical Art Karlsruhe fair in February 2022.
I will therefore show you the artworks of our painters, sculptors and photographers selected by the Art Karlsruhe Jury and will keep you informed of the evolution of this digital project.
