On Saturday the 10th of June, International School of Hamburg hosted for the first time “ART FUSION” - a collaborative art night at ISH. From 18:00 to 22:00, the main Lobby and Aula of the school transformed into an Art Gallery displaying professional works of art by international renowned artist, Antonio Del Prete, local Hamburg artist, Anna Schellberg, and Leela Wang an ISH parent and artist. A selection of imaginative artworks by this year’s Grade 12 IB Visual Arts students was exhibited alongside. Our Head of School, Mr. Andrew Cross opened the social event with an introduction to the exhibiting artists and a brief explanation of the main idea behind “ART FUSION”.
The social event proved to be a fine evening of culture, palatable food and drink along with excellent conversation. Whilst some visitors simply enjoyed viewing the art works on display and conversing with the artists, others purchased some of the works that were on display. A total amount of 7,980 Euros was received from the sale of 7 paintings, for which the artists were very happy and appreciative that they generously donated some of the proceeds to an ISH local charity initiative “Kids4Kids” and to the school's Visual Arts Department.
The overall success of “Art Fusion” was the result of a good number of individuals who willingly gave up their time to make it a superb and enjoyable evening. ISH would like to extend a very special thank you to all those involved for their overwhelming support and enthusiasm in making this event a real life experience.
