Since December last year I have had my artwork hanging in Dancing Shiva on Nuebaugasse in the Vienna 7th district. With exhibition season having begun, it was time to take my artwork down in preparation for sending them of to far flung destinations once again. But more about those exhibitions in future articles.
This past weekend I attended the open studios (Rundgang) of the Vienna Academy of the Fine Arts (Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien). In the unending push to remain abreast with the current art trends, the past is cut off and cast aside as worn out worthless rubbish. That is, unless, it earns some money, like the Painting Gallery, which houses valuable Old Masters artworks from Rubens, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch and Titian.
