60 artists exhibit their works in 50 shops.

Because of the corona pandemic, it's a slimmed-down show.

Wolfratshausen - Two years ago, at the so far youngest art mile in Loisachstadt, 110 artists exhibited their works in 85 different public spaces and in shops in the city center.

A brand that this year, at Art Mile 8, has been reduced by almost half after the cancellations of numerous shop owners and exhibitors.

Art mile opened in Wolfratshausen - works of art throughout the city

Mayor Klaus Heilinglechner, Kunstmeilen organization manager Carmen Gröbmair-Jonas and the chairman of the Lebendige Altstadt Wolfratshausen (LAW), Ernst Gröbmair, cut the symbolic opening ribbon in the inner courtyard of the town hall on Friday afternoon full of anticipation.

Despite Corona: Shops and artists should benefit from the art mile

"Art Mile 8 is a light version due to the corona situation," Gröbmair regretted.

He reported "annoying" delays in the printing of advertising posters and artist catalogs as well as short-term cancellations.

Mayor Heilinglechner was pleased that the open-air gallery can take place behind the scenes despite all the quarrels: "Artists and traders suffered particularly during the Corona crisis," he said.

"Now they have a win-win effect."

This was shown, among other things, in the “maxleben” fashion store on the Untermarkt. After Annette Emrich had explained the genesis of her marble works of art there, Third Mayor Annette Heinloth took a look at the dresses presented. A few meters further on, the painter Ingeborg Hefner used a shop window of the interior decorator Hierl. "Up until now we have enjoyed being part of every art mile, and it will stay that way," Karin Hierl told our newspaper. Ingeborg Hefner took a lot of time to explain her illusion painting to visitors. Katharina Andrée is also happy, who is allowed to exhibit her pictures in the large shop windows of the Witt-Weiden clothing store in the old town. “The lighting makes them even more effective,” said Andrée.

There is also a harmonious symbiosis in the “BiCallas” shop on Obermarkt run by Petra Biermann.

“I think that my precious stone bronze sculptures complement the goldsmith work of Ms. Biermann”, said sculptor Stefanie von Quast.

The four artists Katharina Freitag, Barbara Kachler, Caroline Weiss and Uschi Kneidl, who show their works in an otherwise empty shop in the Loisachpassage, were very popular.

“Everyone is happy that life is returning here,” said Friday enthusiastically.

Roswitha Muth exhibits her pictures all by herself in her gallery of the same name on Obermarkt.

In her own words, she refused a joint exhibition with other artists that had been proposed at short notice - and over the weekend she quietly criticized Carmen Gröbmair-Jonas, who was responsible for organizing the art mile, which takes place every two years for the first time.

"That was a bit unfortunate," said Muth regretfully.

Art Mile 8: Gallery criticizes organizers - Hydro Show inspires visitors

On the opening day, visitors to the Kunstmeilen undoubtedly experienced atmospheric highlights in the fully occupied castle tavern on Humplgassl, which scored highly with herald von Palnkam's coat of arms paintings, and in the gallery in the Löwenbräu building. Hermann Ratte, who runs a dental technology laboratory in the house, gave the painter Peter Kober a forum. His small-scale and socially critical pictures made many visitors think and linger for a long time. The fact that this gallery only closed shortly before midnight on Friday evening, making it the last location on the art mile, was partly due to the relaxed party atmosphere. Music and the Wolf-Gin mixes served by the Bavaria Selection store conveyed an atmosphere that was lacking in other stores. With the impressions of the colorful hydro show on the old raft landing by the city council's cultural advisor,Alfred Fraas, a colorful opening day ended with a lot of light and very little shadow.

Wolfratshausen Art Mile will run for a few more weeks

Art Mile 8, organized by the Lebendige Altstadt Wolfratshausen association and the Wolfratshausen shopping district advertising group, will take place until October 10th.
