Historic Landscape paintings of Israel.
Jerusalem, The United States Consulate will proudly present a short bio and other info about Gordon Frickers and the landscapes he painted in Israel some 30 + years ago.
As you would expect in such a dynamic country, the land of Israel has changed dramatically in the past 25 years.
An unexpected exhibition will run to the end of September.
Today we disconcerted and surprised Gordon Frickers by having him place a small but very special exhibition of landscape paintings of the Tarn in the beautiful Hotel des Consuls, right in the centre of the historic 13th century Castelnau de Montmiral, the Place des Arcades.
The hotel, open all day every day is easy to find and visit, now run by the very amicable Helene and Marc Gaudechon the hotel retains its traditional character, is deseptively spacious and charming inside including a large (for Castelnau de Montmiral) private terrace and garden and a small swimming pool; room prices start from 48 Euros, tel: +33 (0)5 63 33 17 44 or view www.hoteldesconsuls.com (email: firstname.lastname@example.org), we unreservedly recommend this hotel.
The landscape paintings on show were all painted in the area when Gordon Frickers was experimenting with his odd colour vision, none were intended for sale yet have gained quite a following in England being noted for their colour, depth, rhythms, vibrancy and much more.
Following the beautiful exhibition at Domaine Barry, Compangnac, of landscapes of the Tarn followed by marine paintings, the next exhibition will be at the United States Consulate, Jerusalem, Israel, on the 28th of August.
A very generous portion of sales will go to helping orphans of all creeds in Israel, Christian, Muslim, Jewish and others.
There will be a silent auction and phone bids are acceptable.
Left Falmouth this morning and drove via Truro and Bodmin to Plymouth.
Good and bad news, in Plymouth I was able to access my emails but learnt my No 2 computer is no more, it has computed its last err, probable cause voltage fluctuations while in France. It seems the solution, a regulator, will cost some £200.00
Slightly better, I was able to collect the French landscapes I’d left with Adrian for some gallery directors to view.
This is the South of France in May?
Still, the vines are in leaf and I’m told they like the rain at this time of year.
Food for thought for artists? What do you think of this?
G. I have sent you my first draft of my explication for my new (landscape painting) works.
Today we of Itzac celebrated the “Inauguration du Moulin de Trottevielle”.
