For this year's season opening of the 2023 Frankfurt Art Experience, STUDIOSPACE Lange Strasse 31 invites you to the exhibition TWO PLUS TWO.

The exhibition TWO PLUS TWO, prepared by Christina Kral and Carolin Kropff, includes two interactive events that use the studio as a place to explore creative processes and engage with the guests on eye level. The opening of the exhibition is on Friday, September 8, 2023, from 6 to 10 pm. We will showcase paintings, works on paper, and textile art.

On Saturday will be our Artist Workshop Talk, a fascinating combination of an artist talk and a workshop. Christina and Carolin will provide insight into our artistic practice and invite you to get hands-on with tools and materials. Together, we will explore the creative potential of our chosen materials and tap into our intuition. Participation is limited to 8 spots and is free of charge.

The event event is free of charge and limited to 8 places.

On Sunday, September 10th, from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, Drink & Draw will take place, a life drawing event. We will focus on life drawing. It is an opportunity for contemplation and mark-making, in the study of the human body in space. The focus is on the joy of drawing!

There will be beer and soda and everything we need for drawing. To cover our costs, we have set a ticket price of 25 EUR. Participation is limited to 15 spots.
