Studio Gallery "ART RETREAT": Enter into Art - Prelude exhibition in Christmas time 2016

We are pleased to announce our second bonus exhibition - from December 17, 2016, until January 8, 2017. The Enter into Art exhibition of small-scale images is accompanied by extra offers of additional free events and PR services. With the smaller introductory exhibition during the Christmas period, we want to offer art friends a further perspective of artistic delight. This year’s Enter into Art Prelude event in the studio gallery ‘ART RETREAT’ opened on December 17, 2016, and features images by 146 artists from 43 countries on five continents. The exhibition is connected to an homage to Guillaume Apollinaire, but also to aspects of living with art.







The exhibition can be visited from December 25, 2016 until January 8, 2017 at our ART RETREAT-Studio in Bonn-Königswinter.

Homage to Guillaume Apollinaire



Living with art
Further informations about the concept of this Prelude exhibition in Bonn-Königswinter 2016. Please read also the blog post "Liftestyle as PR-concept" with more pictures.

We have accounted for all the artists whose pictures arrived in time.

This art event is a prelude to the main exhibitions in March 2017 at the Cologne-Muelheim Cultural Center, the Municipal Museum in Nassau and the Cultural House in Diez. Due to organizational considerations (for example, the awards ceremony) artworks will not be published until the main exhibition in Cologne 2017.


(Deadline for our main and traveling exhibitions in 2017: January 15, 2017)


Welcome to Bonn-Königswinter


We are sure that this additional international art installation and exhibition of small-scale images will be a successful PR event. We thank all participants for their confidence and the high quality of their work!

Following the proverb "Rome is not built in one day" the first "Art Retreat" event requires a little longer for the creative implementation of various ideas. Among other factors, meanwhile, we have doubled the number of participants. In the first week, we will experiment and arrange, and we will specifically report on this extremely beautiful event after the Christmas period. In further publications, we will supplement this article with more pictures.

The "Art Retreat" can be visited from December 25, 2016 by prior appointment. The visit is possible until January 8, 2017.
