02–08, February 2013
The ARt on Snow 2013 is a slightly different art festival. From the 2nd to 8th of February 2013 the Gasteinertal in Austria transforms into a huge art atelier. For one week, young artists from the fields of painting, drawing and photography present their works and create art live on site. The Gastein’s guests may be looking forward to one week full of thrilling action, exhibitions, workshops and parties.
No withdrawn vernissage only for invited guests, no champagne/small talk party, but a cozy festival focusing on young, contemporary art, where everyone is warmly welcome.
After a successful kick-off event in 2012, the Gasteinertal will be hosting the ARt on Snow for the second time in February 2013. The villages Bad Gastein, Bad Hofgastein and Dorfgastein with their long time art history and the corresponding architecture provide the perfect locations for the winter-art-festival.
The center piece of the ARt on Snow is an art exhibition in the art nouveau rooms of the former Hotel L’Europe in Bad Gastein, where the artists’ collections can be marveled at during the whole week of the event. On the first weekend, all exhibiting artists will personally be on site to interact with each other, to create art and to explain the individual
intentions for their artworks to the public.
But also in the rest of the valley, art will be ubiquitous: During the week of the Art on Snow ice- and snow-sculptures will be created in the Gastein villages, streets transform into gigantic 3D works of art and mountain railway cars into moving canvasses. Several, professionally-led workshops invite the visitors to participate and at different parties, night will be turned into day.
Furthermore the Gastein’s guests may be looking forward to a bunch of top-class surprises, which the organizers do not want to reveal, yet...
