Went to buy paints to paint on unusual shaped jars for tealights outdoors, also gold outlining paint, was so expensive I didn`t bother in the end.

International Festival of Visual Arts in Monastir Honors Tunisian and Foreign Artists

The International Festival of Visual Arts of Monastir started Monday, September 12th with the showcasing of a collective of Tunisian artists in the presence of a significant number of professional painters from Europe, America and Asia.
Many participants have already expressed their enjoyment in rediscovering Tunisia after the January 14th revolution, which strengthens freedom, democracy and the end of totalitarian regimes.
The program of this festival is organized into four exhibitions, among which one exhibit was showcased in the Kheireddine Palace in the Medina of Tunis on Monday.
Mr. Mohsen Gtari, president of the Association of Fine Arts of Monastir (ABAM) and the manager of the festival, claimed that during the festival, he will sign a contract of partnership between ABAM and the Union of the Ukrainian Artists. This will cement the friendship between Monastirian and Ukrainian painters and will strengthen the links of cooperation in both the cultural and artistic domains.
Workshops, excursions and the several evenings events and shows are planned for the festival, which is set to end on September 22nd.
Among the artists who are present: Mr. Michael Passmair, Mr. Alexey Anissimov, and Mrs. Ania Swoboda.

Thanks so much Roulla, yes this was it. Artists from everywhere including Canada and impressive display of work, most of it themed on Monastir but not all. A young persons workshop was also taking place. I wondered if artists had been invited to come and paint/display or how it worked.
Had a great two weeks and such a lovely time with Essem and friends. Must say Sousse looks better than ever, only thing we missed was our trip down to Douz but things will be back to normal.

popped into art festival at monastir marina today and to be honest not that impressed!
many european artists and not great style - kinda cliched artwork IMHO.
prices ranged from 400 to 600 tnd.
there were a few locals in painiting "live" which was nice but they tried to flog us postcards for 2 tnd each, NOT!
made us want to come home and knock up a wee canvas or two and flog it at greatly inflated prices.

Oh wow this is good! It is a nice collection. I loved d way it is being created. It is looking ravishing and antique. The designs and d color code is simply awesome. I wish I could buy all of it. I also wish d prices would have been cheaper.
