Newmasterartist: A Virtual TEFAF Launched

Kunstblog writes about newmasterartist, an initiative of TEFAF Founder’s son Tim:

“Tim Noortman, son of TEFAF founder Rob Noortman has launched the website www.newmasterartist.com launched Thursday. The purpose of this website is to give artists a new platform where they can present their work to the public. On the website it’s possible to explain a work of art and art experts can judge, according to Noortman this would help to understand the contemporary art market.

Rob Noortman the TEFAF art fair started 36 years ago to bridge the gap between artists and buyers. His son Tim is now using the Internet to bring artists and buyers closer together. The TEFAF is now using the latest techniques. So you can download an app with additional information and a virtual tour.”

Worden Lady Gaga’s Extensions Een Hit?

Afgelopen zaterdag was Lady Gaga in Rotterdam met haar gele hairextensions. Ze is inmiddels immens populair. Een aantal maanden geleden was het rode  haar van Rihanna de hit. Gaat dat nu ook gebeuren met Lady Gaga’s extensions? Of is het toch een pruik? We wachten rustig af wat komen gaat.

Als het niet zulk bar weer was had ik haar uitgenodigd om de bus of trein te pakken en lte komen winkelen in Magisch Maastricht. Branko Popovic heeft immers een prachtige collectie staan van Lamija Suljevic.  Lady Gaga al schaatsend op het Vrijthof onder het goedkeurend oog van André Rieu. Genieten van de opkomst van de zon en  wie sjoen os Limburg is zoals @LucRinkens van retaurant hotel De Maastol dat vastlegde op de gevoelige plaat.

Zou dan misschien eindelijk Il neige sur Liège van Jacques Brel ondersneeuwen onder het artistiek en marketing technisch geweld van de Snow Queen?

Will I See You in Maastricht At The Art Fair?

As Gerald G. Stiebel, arts dealer from New York, writes on his blog:

“Art lovers from all over the world have booked their accommodations months in advance in or near this little town on the Maas river which has been a center of trade since the Middle Ages. They will meet and greet each other in the huge modern fair facility known as the MECC (Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Center) where TEFAF takes place.”

Andrew Myers writes:

“The World’s Leading Art and Antiques Fair rolls into town from 12 to 21 March “

In addition to art and antiques, Maastricht has a lovely city center, with small streets and a great variety of shops. I am fortunate my shop is located in the heart of town on grote gracht 14. If you want to restyle your hair, get a perm, hair extensions or haircut. Don’t hesitate to leave the fair for a short visit to the heart of town, put your ear to the streets, listen to the gossip and the funny accent of the locals.

You are obviously welcome in my hair salon to get your hair done, even art dealers are welcome. Would love to hear your story both here and in my hair salon. Will I see you in Maastricht?

This recent interview with Titia Vellenga, TEFAF’s Marketing Manager, by Guillaume CHAMPAVERE, gives a good introduction to the art fair.
