Stuttgart, Germany—A program celebrating the theme of “Art for Peace” was held by UPF-Stuttgart at its office.

Forty very different styles of international artwork were exhibited at the program, which took place on October 21, 2018. The large hall was tastefully decorated in a style fitting to autumn with many varieties of flowers, leaves and green plants. All age groups and many nationalities were represented.

The exhibited items included drawings, sculptures and handicrafts, watercolors, oil paintings, collages and calligraphy. Some of the artists—such as Professor Klaus Bushoff (Inter Art Stuttgart) and Israela Hägele (Clickisi photography company in Filderstadt)—were there with their families. They gave brief presentations on the theme “Art for Peace” and introduced their projects.

The moderator was Hubert Arnoldi, UPF-representative for Stuttgart, who greeted the guests and thanked those who had made their work available for the exhibition. After his rendering of the song “Climb Every Mountain,” all the participants raised their glasses of juice or champagne in a toast to “art for peace”:

“To peace, love, unity and harmony; true, loving families; a family of man with God as Heavenly Father and Mother. God bless our art and artists here and now, always and everywhere!”

After each work of art was introduced, the guests could paint a star, using a template, in acrylic on our themed “belt-star/Orion Nebula” screen.

We lingered together for a long time, enjoying coffee and cake as Israela Hägele and her children played background music on the piano, as a beautiful day drew to an end. Many thanks to all the participants, helpers, sponsors and guests!
