Vernissage at atelier22 in Gmundnerberg: Mirror Images I – Landscapes and Surrealism

The highlight of the artistic year at atelier22 – Knights of Art as guests: Andrew Judd and Stefan Noetzel

At Atelier 22 in Gmundnerberg, artist Angelika Thoma opens a new exhibition entitled “Mirror Images 1 – Landscapes and Surrealism”. This special exhibition, as a contribution to the Capital of Culture “Salzkammergut 2024”, which will take place from 2 to 30 June 2024, presents works by famous artists such as Andrew Judd and Stefan Knoetzel.
Angelica Thoma enthuses: “Our highlights of the year at atelier22 – two knights of art: Andrew Judd and Stefan Knotzel.”

Canadian artist Andrew Judd, who regularly visits Austria with his wife, emphasizes the uniqueness of the exhibition: “This exhibition of Angelica is a special place in nature!” “We love Austria,” he adds. The wine is very good and we love Käsekrainer.

Stefan Knotzel, whose works often tell tales, is also a big fan of Austria. He emphasizes people's joy at seeing artists outdoors: “People are excited to see people painting in the street.” With this statement, he wants to encourage participants to draw in public places.

The “Painting on Traunsee” workshop with artists Andrew Judd and Stefan Knutzel will take place from 3 to 7 June 2024. Due to the poor weather forecast, part of the workshop will be held in the studio in Gmundnerberg.

Stefan Noetzel
Stefan Noetzel lives as a freelance illustrator in Vienna. Inspired by Balthus's delicate painting, he studied with him in Paris. Balthus then took him to Italy to learn to paint chiaroscuro from Caravaggio. Other stops in his training were Madrid, where he learned loose brushstrokes from Velázquez, and six years with Johannes Grutzky in Nuremberg, who taught him integrity, courage and humor in painting. An en plein air painting with Sargent finally brought Noetzel's work to light.
