Stamford Artist Partners With German Gallery For First European Show

STAMFORD, Conn. -- It's not often an artist has the chance to showcase her work in a top gallery in the U.S., let alone Europe, but Stamford artist Jane Ubell-Meyer admits she's never been shy.

"If you don't ask, you don't get," she said. "Put your ego aside, and 'go for it.'"

That's exactly how her story of a joint art show with a Hamburg artist happened. She and her husband were in the German city last June when, while strolling through the city streets, they came upon a "charming" gallery, which, Ubell-Meyer said, literally took her breath away.

"It was closed at the time and all I could think about was that the artist that was showcased in the gallery's windows reminded me of my artwork," she said. "In fact, I told my husband, 'If I didn't know better, I would have thought that paintings in the window were mine.'"

The two returned the next day, and Ubell-Meyer, the artist and the gallery owner quickly compared their mutual paintings.

The result: a joint show, as Ubell-Meyer already had plans to return in October.

"Not only do I have a new friendship I will also be partnering with Margit Meister and celebrating together. Our joint art show opening is Thursday, October 13 at. 7 p m."

Eva Keretic, an American-born singer/songwriter will perform.

Any Stamfordites in Hamburg are welcome to join them at Margit Meister Gallery . Go to www.JaneUbellPaintings.com for more information.
