Hangar Spring Trip II

The Trip Affiche designed by Marij van Schijndel

On Thursday 12 May the 16 artists (and 2 profs) woke up and had their excellent first breakfast in the Chateau Aiguefonde... 9.30 sharp they departed in the direction of Brassac, to draw the 'long perspective' along the river l'Agout with its interesting bridges, that Pim and Gonny had discovered during their exploring trip... It wasn't warm to say the least and especially windy under the bridge...

Luckily we could warm up during an excellent lunch in the nearby restaurant, with sausages & lentils or penne & cheese, wine and lots of discussion, fun and jokes - all about art of course -  and in the meantime... the sun returned!

 Back in the Chateau some couldn't help themselves and kept working on their drawings...

 By the way: to see all the work, come to the 'Trip Post Mortem' Café Culture, date to be announced!

And the first day was finalized with another fantastic dinner cooked by chef (and Seigneur du Chateau) Paul de Vilder... Between the courses, the schedule for day two was announced, as well as the first outlines of the Great Poster Contest and former Hangar president Anton Dikken led us all in singing the 'SO LA LA LA LA LA' song ('Everything' by Michael Bublé).
Hear the song - and you'll think of the trip!!!
