The opening night will be on saturday the 21st of july, and the exhibition will run until the finissage on saturday the 12th of august.
Saint Ursanne is a beautiful little medieval town in the Jura, close to the Swiss-French border. The galerie is part of the communal cultural organisation "Ursinia" that is promoting the cultural life of the region, offering several exhibition sites as well as an artist in residence program in the valley of the Doubs, the river Saint Ursanne is located on.
Legend has it that the name of the town goes back to the irish monk that lived a hermit life here in the 6th century in a cave -that can still be visited- together with a bear. He is said to be the patron saint of people with a stiff neck. (Them caves are drafty!) Later, in the 11th century, a church and monastery were built, which are still there - and also available for exhibits.
I am proud that the members of the board of Ursinia decided to include my work in their programme for 2018 and hope to see you on either the vernissage or finissage of the event, to raise a glass with me and see the works up close and for real.
I am looking very much forward to it!
More exhibits for my work in the coming year are being discussed right now, and hopefully they'll come through as well. I will keep you updated!
See you in the summer!
