to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Jul 13, 2011


A weekend in Ghent to enjoy music, art and food.  A voucher for a night in a hotel with Champagne and chocolates, all paid for... who says no to that!
On the net I find information about a special kind of art tour in the city centre... so off we go.
For a whole month, artists are exhibiting works in shops, restaurants and bars. 

Lucky we... we're hungry and our first stop is one of the participating restaurants.  Seems to be an excellent choice.  Very nice lunch with tasty wines, reasonable price, we recommend it.

This was fun, a nice way to discover some very nice shops with unique items.  We haven't seen all of it, we missed a few...
