DSC02333 DSC02311Next weekend SPOR KUNSTEN, association of artists in Midjylland, invites all art lovers into the artists’ own environment, our studios and ateliers – where art is created 

SPOR KUNSTEN simply offers you a wide directory of professional artists who open their doors for visitors – first weekend in October every year.

Friday, October 3 at. 16-18 SPOR KUNSTEN starts off with a reception at Godsbanen. Here the artists are represented – and present – and you can gather inspiration for your art route. You can also find me/G13 here.

Look forward to see you in my atelier Saturday and Sunday 4th and 5th Oct. from 11 to 17.

Saturday Flea Market

Cleanups and Space Clearing has always had a liberating and uplifting effect on my mood and general well being. I love when energy circulates and things that previously stood unused come in handy again – in a new context.

So most definitely my Saturday flea market here from the garage door and the pavement has been a great solution. Pure win-win. I get my stuff organized and sorted out and even earns little doing so. Well, not much – but enough so I bother hang on a little yet. Plan to keep my blue (found this bucket of old paint in the cellar last week…) doors open as long as I can keep warm – and think it’s funny.

Also it’s  a way to introduce myself – I think the whole neighborhood, more or less, has passed by for coffee, apple pie and flea market finds during the last couple of months.

Double course in Norway

10637724_10152367310718131_129891268_nHave just scheduled a mixed-media course in Norway with my friend, painter Anne-Mette Nyland, where we teach together: artists books, collages, signs and symbols two consecutive weekends this fall. You can attend both weekends and go deeper with the subject  – or you can choose to attend just one weekend.

The courses will take place in a colleague’s studio – absolutely stunning located at Fleinvær near Bodø. I’m SO excited!

Plakat_festuge_A3Summer is definitely on the retreat, temperature drops drastically and far too fast!

Another unmistakable sign that we change the seasons: the dates for my fall courses’re now fixed, and I look forward to see (some/ many) of you at my workshops. Further info at hannematthiesen.dk (look at ‘Kurser’) and/or Facebook

Another chance to visit my studio and “sniff” will be via SPOR KUNSTEN in October. More about this later.

Finally, please, make a note in your calendar at 29th August: You’re hereby invited to the opening of an art exhibition in the Højbjerg where I have asked a group of artists to show up under the heading [SÆIJMBÅT’DI:FRENT]  with interpretations of Aarhus’ festuges theme ‘Same but different’.

A long and lovely summer – even though holidays started with my granddad passing away next to Midsummer. Now holidays have come to an end – but luckily summer is still here. Late summer yes. But a most blessed and abundant season of the year. In fact all summer has been pure abundance. London culture and family tour, high energy summerweek course/camp at Testrup, bicycle trip with Bj to Silkeborg and Samsø, and now a quick Copenhagen visit ahead…

London Holydays

In London with Emilie. Great to see Lucius on home ground! And what else?

A wonderful holiday full of: Matisse’s Cut Outs at Tate Modern, mummies at British Museum, BP Portrait Award  at The National Portrait Gallery and 524 Hours by Marina Abramović  at The Serpentine Gallery, long walks and talks in Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens, plush summer weather, tarot readings, a little shopping at Camden and Covent Garden – and frequent water and coffee breaks at coffee shops, in parks and along the waterside.
