Update 18.01.2016:

Dear friends of art and music,

On Saturday, January 16, the vernissage of Elsbeth Tatarczyk-Welte took place with the theme “Canticle of the Sun”. We are very happy about the many visitors and the lively interest in the exhibition!

The fantastic concert by Dominic Chamot fully rounded off the exhibition and gave the audience direct access to the various paintings. If you haven’t had a chance to see the exhibition yet, why not combine a visit to the exhibition with one of the concerts in the coming weeks? Further information can be found in the supporting program on the “Welcome” page. In addition to the pictures of this exhibition, you will now also find photos of the vernissage here.

We thank you very much for your interest and look forward to welcoming you again soon!

Here the review in the Bonner Rundschau from 28.01.2016:

Dear friends of art and music,

I would like to invite you to the vernissage of the Bonn artist Elsbeth Tatarczyk-Welte. The Austrian-born artist has lived and worked in Bonn for a long time and will show in this solo exhibition another highlight of her work: Colors in interplay with musicians and their compositions processed in collages. Thus, this exhibition will be particularly appealing when music resounds in its midst. Many artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee have also dealt with this theme in their time.

Paintings of the exhibition

„.. Also stylistically the artist does not commit herself: from the realistic portrait, the stylized figure and the lake impression, the arc spans the cubist alienated rock scenery to the purely abstract play of forms and colors… Elsbeth Tatarczyk-Welte has freed herself from all restrictions imposed by the environment and by herself. She creates out of a seemingly never-ending inner urge.” (Prof. Dr. K.-H. Heinzle)

Elsbeth Tatarczyk-Welte

25.02.1941 born in Bregenz/ Austria, since 1973 living in Bonn Fields of work: Painting, Collage

1963 to 1971 private student of Professor Fritz Krcal, Bregenz

Member of the Artist Group Bonn,

GEDOK Bonn e.V. and the international Lake Constance Club

At the beginning of my artistic activity I was strongly influenced by my teacher, Professor Fritz Krcal. My further development is best reflected by a quotation from the laudation of Professor Franz Bertel at the awarding of the 1st prize of the competition “Künstler sehen Hard”, 1981:

 “These images are essential. In them, forms of appearance are reduced to their essence. The random is stripped away, the abundance of details is reduced. As in archetypal images, a characteristic emerges and gives the images their spiritual intensity…” (Prof. Franz Bertel)


Numerous solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad.

Among others in Paris, Vienna, Bregenz, Hard, Lustenau, Hohenems, Bonn, Cologne, Freiburg, Munich, Düsseldorf, Duisburg, Aachen, Meersburg, Wilhelmshaven, Chemnitz, Glauchau, Amriswil
