I’m in Ubud, Bali organising the Linocut Retreat for January 2015. I had a meeting with Arma Resort’s marketing manager to discuss the venue for our workshop, the area is great a roof without walls overlooking the water garden and the second area adjacent to the lobby of the Arma Museum, both beautiful. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the workshop so we discussed that also. Have had nothing but good food here.
I have to tell you about the museum/gallery, the resort was built to fund the gallery, it is much larger and more extensive than I thought it would be. Housed in 2 traditional Balinese buildings one for traditional Balinese artwork and the other for contemporary work by Balinese artists and also paintings by foreign artists who drew inspiration from the Bali landscape and culture. The list includes Walter Spies, Donald Friend, and Rudolf Bonnet. The Gallery has free entry to all workshop participants which is great because I think you will need more than one visit there is so much to see.

I’d love to see you there.
