Hangar AGM 2017

Last Wednesday 15 November, the Annual General Meeting of the Hangar took place - in the Hangar.
It was a good turnout of interested and involved Hangar members. Vice President Marijke and board member Sylvie had organised nibbles and drinks so as always, it ws also a bit of a social event - especially after the meeting. 

For those of you who missed it, here are 4 pictures that say it all. Thanks Vincent for taking them! The minutes have been sent to you by email, if you have not received them and would like a copy, mail Marina.

Highlights: We are looking for enthusiastic people who would like to invest some time on the board of favourite Art Centre. If you are interested contact one of the teachers or mail Marina.
We are specifically looking for a secretary and someone in charge of exhibitions, but in principle we would love some more 'hands' whatever they can do!
 Active participants

In Memoriam Christie Robinson

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Christie Robinson passed away on Wednesday 8 November in London where she was undergoing cancer treatment.

Her funeral will take place in London on the 27th November

Christie was a pupil of Luc Veger and one of the founders of the Hangar after his death. She was a honorary member of the association in recognition of her contribution to the start-up of the Hangar.

The result of an atelier libre Thursday

For more than 10 years, Christie was a teacher at the Hangar. She was always pushing her students to higher levels, inspiring them to try new mediums – to work larger – to experiment. She was always encouraging and managed to get her students to excel.

Christie herself was an interesting and serious artist, who experimented and developed her style by working in different mediums – clay, resin, plaster, bronze – and more recently in metal.

Some of Christie's recent work:

All of us who knew her, have memories of her gentle personality. 
Her students remember her for everything that she taught them.
And for never giving up on a sculpture. 
She will be deeply missed. 
Our thoughts go to her family.

Workshop Creative Expression on Sunday 19 November

 On Sunday 19 November, Francesca Messina hosts another Creative Expression workshop:

The leading role in this workshop is for clay, a ancient material, malleable and transformable, capable of welcoming emotions and giving them a form. After a guided visualization you will be able to express yourself through the clay following different pieces of music.

Clay offers you the opportunity to liberate and express your creativity through a very rich and ancient sensory experience

Inscription obligatory by telephone or email.
Materials included

La protagoniste de cet atelier est l'argile, matière primordiale, malléable et transformable, capable d'accueillir les émotions et leur donner une forme. Après une visualisation guidée vous serez amenés à vous exprimer par le biais de l'argile suivant différents morceaux musicaux.

L'argile donnera la possibilité de libérer et exprimer votre créativité à travers une expérience sensorielle très riche et archaïque
