The Rørpost Collaboration Project – A creative art exchange bridging artists across the Atlantic Ocean
Please join us on Saturday, September 10th from 7:00-10:00 p.m. for the Art Opening Reception of the Rørpost Collaboration Project at the Art Car Museum. The purpose of this project is to bring international artists together using collaborative projects as a pipeline for the flow of creative energy, the development of friendships, and the celebration of freedom of expression. Twenty-one artists from Esbjerg, Denmark were partnered with twenty-one Houston artists. Each artist started a work on paper. These works were sent across the Atlantic to be finished by their artistic partner. Each artist subsequently created a new work in response to the experience of the collaboration in a medium of their choice.
This exhibition will include 84 works of art by 42 artists, including French-American artist, Karine Parker-Lemoyne (Executive & Program Director of the Texan-French Alliance for the Arts), and French-speaking Swiss-American artist, John Bernhard (ArtHouston Magazine), who are members of Houston’s Art Chatter Collective.
