Under The Mango Tree –"Play and Win the Game​" Opening – 7pm

An inspiring group of 54 female artists advocate for gender equality. Even though there are significantly more women than men that follow Art at University, only a minority can make a living from their studies. This project, that presents a wide range of media, brings art to daily life by using the metaphor of cards, a game that entails risk, wittiness and lucidity. The message of togetherness looks to be passed on, hand in hand, to other women artists of the world. In games we exercise real life and hopefully this show will serve to remodel the role of women in art.

Egbert Baqué Contemporary Art – "Laughter" Opening – 7pm

​Shakespeare, in his attempt to define love, wrote: "misshapen chaos of well seeming forms". Paintings by young American artist Winston Chmielinski resemble that line. They are powerful, condensed yet delicate strokes of pastel colors and evocative forms. Some more abstract than others, shapes vanish and paint breaks out. The human figure viewed as a metamorphosed vision, a brilliant vision. 

Jarmuschek + Partner – "Quicksand" Opening – 6pm

​Jarmuschek+Partner are not only welcoming the fall art season, they are also welcoming a new location for the gallery. On this ocassion, artist Sabine Banovic presents her black and white drawings which express great contrast and give a sense of meandering search. Our writer recently described her work as "Bold lines of menacing black; watermarked ink slowly bleeds on the canvas like a raven’s mirror." Ominous and enticing, the canvas captivates and invites the viewer to discover his own search within. We're coming.
