I was selected and invited by the Saatchi Art Curation Team to take part in The Other Art Fair Chicago in February. Unfortunately the logistics of that seemed to daunting for me but I have decided to take part in TOAF in London in October (if they accept my application for that). So, I am looking forward to that.
I will be featured in the book '100 Top Fine Artists of Our Day' by Ulrich Goette-Himmelblau which will be published in 2020.
A Christmas Card Charity idea of the Lions Club Kempen. Christmas cards with images of my paintings are sold for charity. Here are two newspaper articles:
The diocese Dresden-Meißen has used
one of my paintings on its cover of a paper
on a concept for liturgical music.
"Kempener Kunst-Blicke" is the title of a perennial art calendar that Beate Blume has created from the views of Kempen she painted.
The artist from Kempen is an English, P.E., IT and philosophy teacher at the municipal Luise-von-Duesberg Gymnasium.
The self-educated artist has been painting since childhood. In her paintings she wants to express the beauty of her hometown artistically and enable observers to see familiar views in a different way.
An exhibition at the town hall foyer is planned.
The perennial calendar can be purchased in the local bookshops for 14,99 Euros.

... Anyone who wants to make him- or herself (and the presentee) equally happy should definitely have a look at Beate Blume's new calendar.
The teacher has recently published her debut artwork under the title "Kempener Kunst-Blicke" .
