L'AVENIR: ART SANCTUARY GARDEN RECEIVES 1ST PRIZE:)


Ils ont le plus beau jardin de Jodoigne - 26/11/2011
JODOIGNE -
Tone Aanderaa et Ignace Clarysse ont remporté le prix Jardins fleuris de la Ville. Anne Colinet et Nina Seilleur ont aussi été distinguées.
Durant l’été, un jury de quatre personnes présidé par Bénédicte Maréchal parcourait les jardins des candidats au plus beau jardin et à la plus belle façade fleurie de Jodoigne. Verdict ? Le premier prix dans la catégorie Jardins fleuris (11 candidats) est allé à Tone Aanderaa et Ignace Clarysse (Sainte-Marie-Geest), devant les ex aequo Patricia Duchatelet (Jodoigne-Souveraine) et Joseph Dewael (Jodoigne), puis ex aequo encore M. et Mme Guilmot (Jauchelette) et Francine Ceuppens (Lathuy).
Dans la catégorie Façades fleuries (11 candidats également), Anne Colinet (Saint-Jean-Geest) l’emporte grâce à ses magnifiques surfinias blancs, devant Carine Meys (Jodoigne) et Monique Sambrée (Lathuy).

Dans la catégorie Commerces, (3 candidats), Nina Seilleur (café Le Tonneau) prend le meilleur sur le home Le Cèdre bleu et la société Verabel. La terrasse de son café est fleurie toute l’année.
À l’issue de la remise des prix par les autorités communales mardi, Tone Aanderaa avait le triomphe modeste. « Mon mari et moi participions pour la première fois au concours. Le jardin est la symbiose de nos rêves, mais c’est mon mari qui a l’a dessiné et réalisé. Il y a planté une centaine de cerisiers il y a bien longtemps puis l’a embelli de pièces d’eau. Moi, je ne suis arrivée qu’il y a quelques années et ma contribution est assez limitée » Elle oubliait de dire qu’elle y a organisé en juin dernier une exposition de sculptures avec l’aide de ses amis artistes, ce qui a donné une dimension nouvelle à leur magnifique jardin.
M.W. (L'Avenir)

New artists arriving for 2012

Autumn is approaching (or is it already here?), certainly also in Art Sanctuary's 'Enchanted Garden' - and it's a beautiful time! (See previous post)
- And with autumn comes also preparations for a new Spring - a New Year - New artists - and a NEW Exhibition.
- Our biggest pond is getting bigger...and the brooks are getting clearer - and it's an amazing thing to be in a place with SO much water....Dig a hole in the ground...and if you dig deep enough, there's another source of water! Trickling.... running...or just sitting there - like a magic mirror!
- Digging and filling - and thinking - and wondering....and planning....
We will be at least 30 artists in 2012;

Next year's Theme will be 'Dance';

- Ever so Slowly...or ever so fast....
- Dance for your Life
- Whatever you do - Just do it
- Just Dance!
- Dance for Love
- Dance for Pain, if you must
- Dance for Death
- Dance for Finding
- For Losing
- For Holding on Tight

We dance when we're happy
We dance when we're sad...
- And we dance in our minds
when our thoughts make us mad

And we dance meeting Death -
Just look at me stumble...
For God's sakes -
Look at me -
I'm all out of breath!
But I'll Dance - I sure will -
Let me in, let me out!

Just give me a moment -
To Celebrate LIfe!
