Poland – Two Museum Gallery Solo Exhibitions
Poland in 2014 has become the newest emerging center of Art in Eastern Europe and Europe. The insightful leadership and creative guidance of the Castle Museum Exhibiting Artist and Dean/Director of the University Programs, International Curator Dean Popek, is the central creative force leading artistic change in Europe connecting many continents. As the historic emphasis of Art, centuries before, was centered in Paris with leadership such as Picasso, Braque and others, now Poland has emerged as the new center of the movements connecting various continents.
The European Tour of Menthe Wells exhibitions concentrated on the University Zajezdnia Gallery and the “Galeria Zajezdnia, Uniwersytet Marii Curie-Skłodowskiej Lublin” and “Zamosc Gallery Zamoiskiei Galerii BWA” which is a municipal Modern Art institution. The exhibitions were juried by the Polish curatorial university/museum processes of selection for public exhibition in 2013 and 2014 for the 2014 solo exhibitions. In 2014 Menthe Wells had two museum exhibitions in California. New additional work created after the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art Exhibition (May and June 2014 – 2 months) and the fall 2014 museum work, was sent via photograph so preparation was made for the large space needed for the solo exhibitions and for the extensive installation staff. (The installation staff (total) consisted of 16 people who installed the 2 exhibitions of 65 art works at two locaions in Poland). Work was acquired by the University Marii Curie Sklodowskiei and the Municipal Zamoiskiei institutions. Four paintings were acquired in total for public exhibition out of the 65 art works shown. Sixty five art works were exhibited and the size range of 14 paintings extended to one story and 2 paintings extended to two stories. The soft sculpture was of 9’x12’ in dimension. Lectures were on “arts management” and “synaesthesia” and “welded steel work” among other areas.
