Thinking back, everything got so busy. The summer was full traveling to the US and then Ireland. Then once I was back home in Leipzig, school started and I had to concentrate on work. New teachers in my department needed assistance, a new program in grade 11 needed a lot of attention, and I had two art shows lined up, plus two more that were not planned. That's what happened. Wow. It was such a crazy time getting everything ready. All at once.
Before flying to the US in July, I was offered to display my work at Linguarama for the summer. I loaded all the paintings up and hung them at their downtown office. It had been years since I last hung new work on their walls. It was good to know the work would be seen while I was away. We had a nice closing reception in August before taking down the show.
At the same time I was invited to show work in Altenburg, Germany at the Reichenbach Palace. The exhibition was during the same weekend in September. So all six Meta-Triptychs were on display but at two locations, an hour's drive away from one another. It was also a great opportunity. Many visitors were there to see the art and many more were there to see the building, which was open to the public during the historical society's open house weekend. It was also an opportunity to meet some local artists. Included in the show was the artist group Tacheles from Berlin, Michael Fischer-Art, Beck, Yvonne Kuschel, Carolin Okon, and Anthony Lowe among others.
