Two weeks before the very special winter opening the weather gods provided a matching backdrop at the Kleinwalsertal. The snow has come, the artists are confirmed and the “art on snow" party program in the opening week from December 6th to 13th offers entertainment at its finest for the evenings.
The countdown has begun. In less than two weeks the idyllic situated winter sports resort Riezlern is going to become a veritable Mekka for Board Rider Artists. The “art on snow" offers one week of vernissages by the most famous artists of the scene.
The main location of the “art on snow" is the casino, where the exhibition of the “seven artistic sins" by Rossignol will take place. Furthermore the young blood artist Eva Krusche will impress here with her art on used skatedecks and snowboards. But also some chosen photo-artists like Peter Körbler, Nico Galauch, Ralf Bernert and Klaus Polzer will show their sophisticated artistic works to the interested public.
A further hot spot of the “art on snow" is the restaurant Beim Haller, where a snowboard museum invites the public to a trip through 40 years of snowboarding history and where photographers like Sebastian Gogl, Stefan Eigner and Anthony Brey will present photo-art on a very high level.
Those who want to get an overview on all exhibiting artists, should visit the upper station of the Kanzelwandbahn, where one chosen work from every artist will be shown. The M&M Bar offers interesting artworks from the photographer Christian Stadler. Here one can handle the experiences made during the day while having a cold drink.
The Crystal Ground snowpark will be open for shredding throughout the whole week. Here, the photo-workshop – focussed on action photography – will take place, because there is no place where this art can be learned better than in the sportive epicentre of the Kleinwalsertal.
A workshop for landscape photography in the spa gardens of Riezlern offers an insight into the calmer side of photo-art. For those, who prefer a brush in their hands instead of a camera, should take part in the painting workshop at the restaurant Beim Haller.
Now it comes to the already mentioned party program. On December, 6th the freeski movie “Aestivation" will be shown at the casino, before DJ Smart will make the Tanzbar shake with his new album “Turntablejibbing vol.2" and together with DJ Crypt as the Famous Deck Team.
On December, 11th the VICE documentation Heavy Metal in Baghdad will be exclusively screened at the newly opened Rock Café Mühle in Oberstdorf. On Friday evening, December, 12th the Hörbar in Oberstdorf will host the legendary VICE party. Rhythm Police and the internationally known DJ’s Moulinex and Paul Raal will provide a hilarious atmosphere and party till dawn.
The unique art exhibition in the Kleinwalsertal finds its end on Saturday evening with the presentation of the outstanding snowboarding movie That’s it, that’s all with the Quiksilver superstar Travis Rice at the casino. Afterwards DJ Craxx, accompanied by the VJ’s bydefault and nin.sha, will rock the art of(f) party with an audiovisual show at its finest.
