‘Franchement Art’ 2nd edition
From 2-5 September 2011, the second edition of the contemporary art fair 'Franchement Art' takes place in the Citadelle of Villefranche sur Mer Renowned galeries and well-known contemporary artists show their paintings, sculptures, photographs and other artwork. Aquarellista Marina Kulik is one of the chosen artists. She will show her large size abstracts, big multicolour roses and a preview on her 'Glam Women' portraits. "I participated in the first edition and I had a great time with the other artists, we had inspiring talks and of course tremendous fun... In the picture below (ripped from the official brochure) you can see me (middle, right), looking at the work of another participant. The number of visitors could have been higher and the organisation promised for the second edition to promote better and louder. This year more galeries are exhibiting and the overall quality seems to be higher, the 'ballotage' being more strict. I got selected, phew! My stand will be next to that of my Dutch sculptor-friend Ineke Velsink. Our work looks great together and I look very much forward to showing it to the many international visitors. I expect to sell and get commissions for Glamorous Women Portraits" The entry to the Contemporary Art Fair 'Franchement Art' is free, more information on their website nb: if you are looking for painters (like me) go to 'Plasticiens'
