TEASE II Transatlantic Exhibition of Art in the Southeast
The Inaugural TEASE Tour successfully took place September 2014 as we welcomed five German artists to the Southeast. Over the course of a week, they traveled from Atlanta, GA, to Durham, NC, making stops in Spartanburg, SC, and Charlotte, NC, to showcase their work. In 2016 we will build on that success as we welcome four new artists, two from the Southeast and two from Germany, with guest artists in select cities .
The second tour of TEASE– Transatlantic Exhibition of Art in the Southeastled the artist group through the Southeast of the United States: from Atlanta to Spartanburg, to its headquarters in Charlotte and on to Durham/Raleigh. The tour was curated for the first time by Johanna Steinz.
Getting ready in Atlanta: Charlotte’s well-known artist Regine Bechtler, Kati von Schwerin , Jochen Pankrath and Jane A.Nodine.
