Not everyone is out of town. We’re here, right? While we have to wait for the Lofft, the Muko, the Opera and the Ballet to start in September, there’s still a chance to catch an opening….. or two.

13 August ‚ĖļTrias: Elmar Karla, Clara Reichertz und Lean Frizzera¬†–¬†Galerie Hier + Jetzt¬† opening

There’s a new gallery in town. It’s called Hier + Jetzt (Here and Now) and from the looks of things that’s a very apt name. Thur is opening night and the first exhibition is TRIAS. OK. I can’t help it…. #TryUs. Beautiful!

3 Argentine artists,¬†Elmar Karla,¬†Clara Reichertz¬†and¬†Lean Frizzera, will be showing not just their art, but their lives. Life brought them together. Life inspires their work. As Elmar Karla says, “Art belongs to the townscape and the people that love it.” The cultural exchange between the artist and the viewer, the art and its surroundings, as well as between Argentina and Germany play a pivotal role in this exhibition.

And the DJ I had for my exhibition….cause that’s how much I love him……#freekee¬†with sound by mr beef. I’ve got my dancing shoes all shined up!
