Upcoming event: Guided tour of Monet-Turner-Twombly exhibit at Staatsgalerie

Join host Dorothee Klein at the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart on Thursday, May 24th to experience the outstanding late works of the three greatest painters of the last two centuries.

This exhibition unites the works by William Turner, Claude Monet and the late Cy Twombly, and it offers visitors new perspectives on the art of each, in and of itself. Approximately seventy late works – some quite large in scale – by these three painters will be exhibited, and will serve to illuminate similarities and interrelationships between the works and exemplify their common characteristics. This will also be one of the last chances to visit this exhibition as it will only run until May 28th!

A total of 25 participants is possible for this event, which will be done as a guided tour in English. Our tour will start at 17:30 prompt, thus it is important that all participants arrive on time at the meeting point at 17:15.

Following the tour, which is expected to last 1 hour, we plan on going to a nearby restaurant for dinner.

This event is for members only and is being sponsored by the IWC. We will be covering the cost of the tour guide and part of your ticket price. You pay only €10 for the entire experience!

A note from the new Activities Coordinator, Laura Lenz

As the new Activities Coordinator, I hope to help organize each month varied, fun and interesting activities for us. However we are a large and varied group of individuals, and what may appeal to one may not to the next person. Thus, I need your help and input.

What kind of activities would you like to see? Would you also be interested in hosting one or more activities? Please use the form below (or catch me in person at an event) to send me your ideas, and whether or not you would like to take an active role in organizing and/or hosting that event.

I look forward to hearing from you!
Yours, Laura Lenz

p.s. Please do not limit yourself to activity ideas solely for members as oftentimes it is nice when we can include our partners / husbands and children.

Rules for IWCS holiday gift exchange 2011

  1. All gifts should cost 15 Euro and be wrapped.
  2. Each person selects a number to determine the order in which a person gets to select a gift. Number 1 goes first and gets to select and unwrap a gift.
  3. Number 2 then selects. But she may take Number 1’s gift or she may select a gift from the pile. If she takes Number 1’s gift, Number 1 gets to select again from the pile. After she has finished her turn, Number 3 gets to select.
  4. Once again, she may select any opened or unopened gift. Each time a gift is taken away from someone, that person gets to select again.
  5. She may select any gift except the one that was just taken away from her. She may however, have the opportunity to select it again later.
  6. The third person to possess it gets to keep it. No more swiping the gift. The gift is frozen. (This means it can only be taken twice)
