27 international artists will exhibit their artwork from 3-9 November 2009 at the Grand Palais in Paris, in the event Art en Capital, at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants, which was founded in 1884 by artists such as Cézanne, Gauguin, Toulouse Lautrec, Pissarro.
OpenArtCode (openartcodeparis.com) is made up of a group of talented artists who have very different technical styles and a varied artistic formation. They have united their talents in the past to exhibit together in Italy, Monte-Carlo, Mexico and last year at the Grand Palais under the umbrella of Passion for Life. To coincide with the exhibition in Paris this year, some OpenArtCode artists will also be exhibiting at GemlucART in Monaco (Auditorium Ranieri III, 22 October – 6 November).
The strong relationship of this group of artists has been consolidated in the various international exhibitions in which they have participated together, making it possible to continue to organize this exhibition and other prestigious events in the future. The common goal of exhibiting their art in important locations, often with a charitable incentive, has cemented them all as a group and the difference of language, culture and above all of expressive technique only go to highlight the quality of each of these artists in the group context.
The OpenArtCodeParis catalogue will be available, not only of course at the Grand Palais, but also at major museum and international exhibition bookshops, such as the Uffizi Gallery in Florence or the Biennale Gardens bookshop in Venice. On Thursday 5 November at 7pm the OpenArtCode catalogue will be presented at the gallery, Le Scribe L’Harmattan, Place Maubert rue Frederic Sauton 19 in Paris.
The artists participating in OpenArtCodeParis are: Barbara Alcalde, Marely Becerra, Figen Begen, Leon Bosboom, Mary Brilli, Brenda Charles, Emilie Cummings, Marybel Gallegos, Shirley Garcia Cipullo, Enrique Garcia Saucedo, Marina Gavazzi, Juan Carlos Granados, Guti, Sumio Inoue, Betty Jonker, Margaret Karapetian, Margaret LaBounty, Roy Lawaetz, Sina Lee, Arianna Luporini, Lina Moretti Nesticò, Catalina Ochoa, Marieta Reijerkerk, Naomi Sheed, Carlo Vitali, Karel Vreeburg, Amanda Ward Thomas.
