Female Artists’ Society

This year marks 100 years for the foundation of KKS/ Kvindelig Kunstner Samfund/ Female Artists’ Society – one year after we celebrated 100 years of women’s suffrage in Denmark. The anniversary will be celebrated through a great variety of events and exhibitions during 2016.

From the files I found a little text on KKS’ story: Female Artists’ Society is one of the oldest professional associations for female artists and craftsmen. The foundation took place on Feb. 7, 1916 at a meeting in Copenhagen. Initiaters to the inaugural meeting were the painters Marie Henriques and Helvig Kinch. 25 women supported the invitation and took part in the founding meeting, among them the painter Anna Ancher and sculptor Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen. 75 members signed in at the meeting.
The aim was to jointly work to achieve equal conditions for female artists as male, by organizing and assembling the female vote in the elections to the Academy, Exhibition building at Charlottenborg etc.
In addition to the professional community created a forum for the exchange of ideas, experience disclosure – as a fun time for the women, who then often lived and worked alone as artists. Today KKS has 216 members.

I’m involved in more of the upcoming jubilee events. This weekend I went to a meeting with the group working on TRIBUTE – made in paper that will be on display at Copenhagen town hall 3. March.

I’ve got the concept, more or less, how I will make my pieces, but now comes the actual execution! Happy there is still some time!

Allow me to share my joy and surprice receiving a totally unexpected Grant from The  Anne Marie Telmanyi born Carl-Nielsen Foundation – in recognition of my artistic merits.

I’m so happy, proud, honored and deeply, deeply grateful! In fact I feel like hovering around in a big pink cloud!

Istanbul Huzun

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

8 days in Byzantium/ Constantinople/ Istanbul (dear child has many names) to soak up impressions and find good motifs to draw, to enjoy plenty of tea breaks, play backgammon, study people in the street, read, vegetate, enjoy the colors, patterns and the special Turkish Huzun mood. The first days in the blistering weather – the last few days also with bursts of rain. So it’s good that there’re places like the Grand Bazaar, Istanbul Modern & and Orhan Pamuk’s Musum of Innocence where it’s only a pleasure to spend a rainy day.

Next painter travel I arrange will be in late summer/autumn 2016. Feel free to contact me if you wanna join.😉
