Minden, Germany June 20 -21, 2015.   Twin Town art exhibition.

An exhibition entitled, “Die Bildner” featuring artists from Minden, Apeldoorn in Holland, Gagny in France and Sutton in England was held for the first time in a huge artists’ workshop just outside Minden, which was previously an ex-British army camp. Ingrid Barber, mixed media artist and Jeremy Clark, sculptor, were the representatives from Sutton. Artists opened up their workshops to display a wonderful range and quality of sculpture and paintings and part of the workshop space became the exhibition area for the european twin town exhibition.

The town of Minden was also hosting its lively annual summer festival with plenty of 70’s music, outdoor food stalls and beer tents. The organisers of  “Die Bildner” were incredibly hospitable and arranged artists networking parties each evening and trips around the historic areas of the town including a visit to the famous Kaiser Wilhelm-Monument.

The exhibition was very well attended over the two days and the mayor of Minden said that it was highly impressive. Ingrid and Jeremy were interviewed by the local press, and an article appeared in the weekend newspaper. At the close of the show the organizer,Eva Kutschera,presented certificates of participation to all the twin town artists signed by the mayor of Minden.
