Dieter Erhard came in today from Guatemala, bringing a French guy and two of his fellow Germans, to hold his third Artcamp. It's a lot of fun … the resident artists work on projects from the 9th of this month until Nov. 1 then hold a two-day show. The Frenchman, Marc Duquesnoy, does concrete sculpture, as does Dieter. One of the Germans, Sascha Banck, does large-scale paintings, and the other, Daniel Berger, does large-scale concrete sculpture. Then, from Oct 24 until Nov. 1, they will be joined by four Texans: Cynthia Aldrete, Dion Laurent, Olivia's own Aubrey Parker, Russ Thayer, and Don Williams. Artcamp show will be Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 from 10 a.m to 7 p.m. It's a bunch of fun; you can talk to the artists and see what they've done.
The ArtBoat was featured on Texas Country Reporter a little while back, and Dieter has a Web site at www.artcenter-seadrift.com. It's always nice having the artists in town. They are a bit of exotica in our little fishing village.
