Juan Petry, conceptual artist and founder of the EL-DRAC network, has created an art space in Windeck- Gerressen (Germany). His private studio does not only serve as his personal workplace, but is as well a room for exchange and collaboration with other artists and a showroom for contemporary art. The present exhibition includes his works and those of other members of the EL-DRAC network, e.g. Sonia Eva Domenech from Cataluña and Roman Domenech from Valencia. A first result of a joint project in the new art space are the paintings that Petry created together with Malina Sulinam, a young Afghan artist who is presently studying in Europe. Her works reflect the difficult situation for her fellow countrymen and for herself working as an artist in the Afghan society.

On Sundays from 12 to 18 h the private art space is open for visitors, art lovers and interested artists.

Location: Gerressener Str. 23, basement floor (entrance outside), 51570 Windeck
