The occasion was the opening reception of a Haiti art exhibition at Galerie Knud Grothe in Charlottenlund, just outside Copenhagen.
I brought my dear friend Topsilden (Danish and means “Top Herring”, according to Google translate!) aka Rikke, who by the way has the look-like-a-million for less jewelry webshop cphpromotion.dk, which includes the multi pearl necklace I’m wearing on the photo. International postage, Rikke? Of course.
This is my second visit to Galerie Knud Grothe, one of the most respected art galleries in Denmark – last time I enjoyed the New York skyline paintings of Mikael Olrik. And I wasn’t disappointed this time either:
The colors. Love them.
Different artists portray Haiti, and it looks like it wasn’t only me who liked what I saw:
The atmosphere was almost electric; lovely art, Riesling from Mosel, Weingut Markus Monitor – get it at Otto Suenson Vinhandel in Dr. Tværgade, Inner City Copenhagen, seafood from HAV, Torvehallerne.
And cheerful jazz:
Half the joy of the musical experience is watching how the musicians seem to enjoy themselves:
Jørgen Leth (carrying the books) read some of his Haitian poems during the event.
What a good way to spend a Saturday.
Peace & Love
Ps. The joy of anticipation – just arrived at Gallerie Knud Grothe:
