Premiere!

Exhibition of the Talentworkshop

The grand opening of the exhibition with the title “Premiere!” on November 4th at the headquarters of the Volksbank in Gutersloh was a great success. The title was characteristic in more ways than one: 2013 was the first year that the Art Studio Kiebitzhof was able to offer a talent workshop for the employees of the sheltered workshops of the wertkreis Gutersloh. Budding artists who had participated in previous art courses of the studio and showed high potential were invited to develop their skills in a talent workshop. There was a wide selection of all kinds of materials to choose from. Some chose to specialize in acrylic paints, others used water colours, chalk or modelling clay.
Silke Theresia Zumbansen, the freelance artist who tutored the course, said in her opening words that most participants knew exactly what they wanted to do. She described their approach the following way: “It just had to come out!”
The exhibition, which presents the work of these specific seven artists, is a premiere in the sense that these artists have never exhibited together elsewhere. The grand opening took place on the 4th November 2013. A wonderfully mixed crowd attended the event, including for instance Monika Paskarbies, the deputy mayor of Gutersloh, as well as representatives of the supervisory board of the wertkreis Gutersloh, the Volksbank, the Andreas-Mohn-Foundation and other local politicians and entrepreneurs. Thanks to the financial support of the Andreas-Mohn-Foundation it was possible to buy picture frames and print posters and flyers to advertise the exhibition. Of course, the benefactor of the foundation and his wife, Andreas and Eva-Maria Mohn, attended the event as well and bought a number of the pictures that same evening.
The final reason to celebrate a premiere was the fact that this was the first time the Volksbank Gutersloh exhibited works of art from the Art Studio Kiebitzhof.
All the pictures were on display in the foyer of the Volksbank Gutersloh(Friedrich-Ebert-Str. 73-75, 33330 Gütersloh) from the 4th – 25th November 2013. All in all 19 of the 45 pictures on display were sold – a brilliant outcome for any exhibition! In case you are interested in the works of art after the closing of the exhibition, Barbara Ambrosy from the wertkreis Gutersloh (05241/ 9505-141) can give you further information or contact the artists.
