Valediction from the Sonnenschloss

Great climate of public opinion and admiration for the work of STEPHANundVERENA

„The both artists not only have made a vast effort for the castle but also for our village.“ the mayor Petra Wernicke thanked in her speech STEPHANundVERENA for the work, they did in the last months.


More than 300 people celebrated together with the artists the last day of this amazing cultural event during summertime at the castle. "So many parking cars in the village we havn't seen for a long period of time." the inhabitants reported. And also the artists were very satisfied with the numbers of guests over the exhibition period: "Like at many places we are new, the inhabitants predicted us, when we came into this little village at the beginning of this summer, that people in this region are not interested in art or culture." But with their concept to go towards the "native" people and let them get involved into the prework, STEPHANundVERENA were on the right side.
The owners hoped to rise the level of the degree of familarity when they invited the artists for the project, but they could not envision this vast impact.


The two artists achieved to reach a lot of people in that region with their project: "They don't let us alone with some crazy, colourful paintings, but they try to get in touch with us, asking about former times and our experiences and opinions and guide us through the exhibition personally or in form of written explanations of the artworks." the non - art - trained visitors detected.


The visitors also admired the ambience of all events. The atmosphere at the last evening was like all the other events: peaceful, exciting and all this in a relaxed ambience with a lot of amazing things to hear, see, feel and also taste. A supernormal but very pleasent experience for most of the guests. Theinvited musical artist performed very professional and also felt the good vibrations spread by the work of STEPHANundVERENA.


TUNICHTGUT took the audience on a journey of many known and unknown traditional songs; played with a lot of different instruments. All songs were performed very professionel but the band achieved to rest very close to the audience which supported the intimate atmosphere of the evening.

The intent of STEPHANundVERENA is to give the guests a special feeling to take home. Not only in their artworks, in all organising of events they want to show that live is easy and can be fun at anytime. So they served hot wine, and other cold drinks, and everything for free.

After the concert STEPHANundVERENA invited the audience to stay, having a meal and a drink together and celebrating this last evening and the successful somerevent.
