Portes Ouvertes this weekend

Last minute pointer:

Kunstschaffende aus Basel und der Region öffnen alle zwei Jahre an einem Wochenende ihre Ateliertüren, um einem interessierten Publikum Einblick in ihr Schaffen zu gewähren.

Portes Ouvertes is happening this weekend. Various Basel artists are taking part. A great way to see how artists work.

Hat tip: Martin Gyger, who is also taking part.

Workspace of an artist…

Just a quick note pointing to some snapshots I took on Saturday in Martin Gyger’s studio.

I visited Martin Gyger's art studio

I like seeing other people’s workplaces…

Martin told me that he will be moving into a new workspace very soon, but before he moves out he’ll organize an exhibition. I forget the exact date but this should be some time in early September. And Martin says he’s planning to take part in this year’s Portes Ouvertes on 18th and 19th October.

Martin displays much of his work on Flickr. His work is for sale. Contact him directly if you’re interested in getting an original or a print.
