it is been a WHILE since I came back from two doll exhibitions in Germany. And only now I think I can scrap a little time to tell you about it 🙂
It was my first time and first attempt to take part in such events…and let me tell you…IT WAS GREAT!!!!!
But first things first. In this post I’ll tell you about Spring Doll Festival in Muenster, Germany. Next post will be devoted to my participation in the Max-Oscar-Arnold-Award for Contemporary Doll Art in the city of Neustadt bei Coburg 🙂
The Spring Doll Festival was an event 2 in 1 so to say: an exhibition/salesroom and a doll contest for an award AMALIA, organized by a Puppen&Spielzeug doll magazine.
The contest theme was Flower Power. I am so happy that my doll received one of AMALIA awards :))!!
Hier is my table with the dolls..
You could see all kinds of dolls and toys at the exhibition. It was a wonderful experience for me. I have met so many talented artists, some of them I knew from social medias like Instagram and wanted to meet them in person for a long time 🙂
like a wonderful doll artist Anna Linberger – GCDoll
or Marina Demchenko..
or Viktoria Fribus..
And there was a magnificent Hildegard Günzel! I have been admiring her magical dolls for such a long time, having all her books and never even thinking about meeting the artist someday.. Well .. it happened in Münster 🙂 And Frau Günzel and her art dolls are more then you can imaging looking at the book photos! One of the nicest and positive persons I have ever met.. She is just GREAT! I am solo grateful for this experience ..
And here is Frau Günzel with my porcelain doll Lisa! :)) I can not believe myself that it happened!!
The two days in Münster were really full of experience and super interesting meetings with the visitors and great coming-together with the other doll artists.
I can not post here all the photos I’ve made of all kinds of dolls presented there. I will probably do it on my Flickr account, if you are interested 😉
I would like to finish for today with this photo..Like it so much!
People like dolls, dolls like people 🙂
Me with my little Tiger and Anna Linberger- Gentle Creation Doll meeting Cosplay People (I think this is the right word 😉
Stay tuned 🙂
