Art exhibition “close to you, close to me”

with Sibylle Lauscher, Inés Mantel, Jane Wotzka and Irène Hänni

Opening night: Saturday, 19th September 2020 6-8pm

The topic implies a moment of utmost concentration. These moments happen when somebody is totally absorbed in themselves and their work, or when a beholder encounters a piece of art that moves and fascinates them. Or a small child playing with their favourite toy. This title also implies being “in good hands” – held by yourself or someone else. This is a condition artists regularly experience while they work. It is very enriching. Therefore we, the artists, wish that you also encounter these special moments when you visit our exhibition.

We very much look forward to welcoming you!

Dates: 19th September – 6th October 2020

Monday, 21st and 28th September as well as 5th October | 2 – 4pm
Tuesday, 22nd and 29th September as well as 6th October | 11am – 4pm
Saturday, 26th September and 3rd October | 11am – 4pm
Sunday, 20th and 27th September as well as 4th October | 11am – 4pm

We ask you to respect social distancing regulations and bring a face mask with you. It is a generous proportioned room, therefore we feel sure we can comply with health and safety regulations.

Offener Garten | Open Garden

Garden open 2-6pm: Fridays in August & September 2020 

National Open Garden Days: Saturday & Sunday, 22nd – 23rd August, 2-6pm with coffee & cake served in the garden. 

Our family garden behind the house grows more beautiful every year. The romantic B&B is also located in a mini-house in the garden. Enjoy a break in our green paradise with a cup of coffee or tea.

Our garden is a natural regeneration oasis (organic gardening) with a variety of outbuildings and lots of seating giving different views of the space. I mainly grow summer flowers (I love dahlias), roses, kardy and a varietly of herbs. The Bradlitz stream runs beside the B&B.

Infront of our house pots of flowers decorate your view to the over 100 year old water trough opposite. The main street is protected as it is lined with 10 farmbuildings of historic significance.

Gardening is my favourite hobby and I am always delighted when I discover a plant is coming up again in spring. I am a painter and member of various art societies and you can also visit my art gallery and museum shop.

Self-service shop in our carport

As shops are still closed I have been allowed to set up a small self-service shop in our carport selling the home-made jams and cordials from Rosemary (made in Arisdorf), soaps, tea-towels and of course my greetings cards.

I have checked it with the Baselland Crisis Services so please come and browse – but only one person at a time!

In the shop I now have the Refished products – a company set up by the lovely Sissi in Vienna selling beautiful handmade bags made of up cycled fish-food or cement sacks in Cambodia. If you would like the super cool rucksack or a new purse, just give me a call or email me and I will deliver it (Sissach – Liestal – Rheinfelden FREE) or put it in the post for you!
All the products are on my website. | 079 820 7842

Refished Business Bag Fr. 58

Refished Rucksack Fr. 94

Refished: Soulmate Bag Fr. 73

News February

Auch wenn es keine Schweizer Tradition ist, finde ich es immer wieder wunderbar, wenn wir Positives feiern und uns bewusst machen – und der 14. Februar aka Valentine’s Day ist genau so einen Fall. Es tut gut, einfach mal wieder daran zu denken: an die Liebe. Darum habe ich für diesen Monat meine Rosen ausgesucht. Sie sind noch zu haben und werden garantiert nicht welken… 😉

Wie immer zum Schluss, ein kunstphilosophischer Diskurs zum Thema “die Selbst-Referenzialität des Werkes”.

Please excuse my not translating this newsletter into English. I am really looking forward to painting again, and have just primed 7 new canvases.
I really want to spend my time painting them. Thanks for understanding!
