Over 30 international artists on 1200 m2 of exhibition space helped the Art on Snow to uphold its reputation as summit meeting of snow arts. 

The organizers can draw a positive conclusion of the premiere in the Gastein valley and already fix the date for next year’s edition.

What a colourful, diversified and multisided week full of paintings, drawings, graffiti, photos, illustrations and sculptures! With the ARt of(f) Party in the Regina Club in Bad Gastein where some artists painted live, the art week found its appropriate final.

The Art on Snow has again lived up to its name and presented winter sports art and an extended
exhibition of contemporary art this year. The feedback of visitors, artists and media
confirm the successful concept of this very special art festival. Martin Zeppezauer, CEO of
the Gasteinertal Tourismus Gesellschaft is pleased:
 
“As hosts of the event we look back on the first edition of ARt on Snow Gastein
very contentedly. The event not only perfectly underlined the long tradition of
Gastein as a venue for international sport and culture events, but also has
exclusively generated positive response from our guests and visitors.”
 
The success is also reflected by the immediate fixation of the new date for the next year:
from 2 to 10 February 2013 the ARt on Snow will again take place in Gastein.
 
Many new ideas are already buzzing in the heads of the organizers and especially the
field of snow and ice sculptures is planned to be extended.
 
For those who want to call an exclusive piece of ARt on Snow 2012 their own there is the
possibility to buy the Rapid Flows Marker Battle snowboards at the auction on the ARt on
Snow Facebook page. Each half final and final board is unique and has been painted by
an ARt on Snow or external artists –something really special, so easy to get. There is no
minimum bidding price and the revenues will completely go to the artists themselves
(shipping costs will be added to the highest bid). So quickly bid and nail down one of
these fantastic boards for your own four walls!
 
If you could not make it to Gastein or cannot get enough of the snow arts or simply want
to recall the fascinating pictures you can find many photos of the ARt on Snow on
www.artonsnow.com. The video edit which is in the making at the moment will also be a
special delicacy. Of course the latest information concerning innovations, projects, new
ideas and artists for the ARt on Snow 2013 can be found on the websites of the event
and on www.gastein.com, too. Stay tuned - because “After the event is before the
event.”
