MY WORLD - Path of Artists
more participants here
A friend of mine invited me to a "Path of Artists" which means that artists are organizing an exposition in their town or in their municipals and show their works in their private homes. You get a plan with the addresses of the houses where an exposition takes place. It is very interesting because not only you see the artworks but also the houses and how the artist lives.
I only had a few km to the little town and my GPS took the shortest way so instead of driving on a big mainstreet I found myself in the middle of the countryside !
The street was very narrow and in fact (what I learned later) mostly for bikers, but I had this beautiful landscape with the horses instead of a busy street. Apparently I wasn't the only one who had the same adventure, other people had it too with their GPS !
But I arrived safely and here is the house with the first artist I visited. She did mostly sculptures but also other things.
Her works were exposed all over the house, here you see the kitchen and the living room.
Each house had the invitation poster at the main entrance, you can see an easel in the backyard.
My friend exposed three sculptures, you can see them in the post below, but the one I liked the most is the sculpture of her son with his pregnant wife.
Other artists not only exposed in their houses but also in tents (you are never sure about the weather !)
where you even got something to eat and drink
and one, with solar pannels. I see them more and more here in my area.
