31.of July was the day we opened the castle to the public during the night hours for the Castle Night. The day was dedicated to the organisation of the town hall and its award given to 3 citizens for their representational merit. One of them was Rosana de Montfort, who was awarded a "Award of the city Bílovec" for her activities in art, representation of the Château Bílovec and its projects and for the representation of the town in art projects and activities.
The award was received with thanks to the town hall and the curatorium of the Château Bílovec , the collaborators including Galerie MonAmi and many visitors and art lovers, who show their continuous support.
Exhibition "INTERWORLDS"- Rosana & Russell 'GITHYANKI' de Montfort
Exposition is held at Kunín Castle as part of the project of the National Monuments Institute "Year of the Enlightened Nobility".
The gallery spaces of the Baroque mansion, which are intertwined with fantastic unique chimney systems, will for a time be home to works by the British-Czech couple. Images inspired by magical cities and wandering in the fantasy world now unite them in a common artistic path. The name INTERWORLDS comes from the field of activity, where the works of both intertwines, and where the mutual influence in the choice of techniques, compositions and colours is evident.
Russell a.k.a. Githyanki has always devoted his creative time to black and white photography. The transition towards colour and canvas has taken place during the hard lockdown in 2020, where he diverted his attention towards an activity, which will widen his field of expression and also give his frustration with the situation an outlet. His colourful acrylics are works of mind unmarked by popular views or trends in art and therefore highly intuitive and genuine. Paintings arising in this period of his life are full of hope, optimistic colours and freedom.
Rosana's expressive cityscapes and abstractions are walking hand in hand with Russell's theme, creating so a world, where both meet on the canvas.
The couple also led a group of volunteers during an artisitc workshop in the antique bowlong gazebo showing , that everybody can create art without boundaries, criticism or fear of failure. Atendees of this workshop were 2-65 years old and had a lot of fun!
The exhibition takes place during the visiting hours of the castle season from June until the end of October 2021.

This project arose not only from the need for a larger art venue for the exposition "ROMY&ROSE", but also from the common interest with the curatorium of the Bílovec Chateau and the town hall. The idea to widen the touristic attraction by an art experience was met with optimism and the castle curator Eduard Valeš offered a hall on the ground floor for this purpose. In the next 3 months the premise has undergone a refurbishment, existing fixtures and fittings have been removed, walls have been plastered and painted, an advanced heavy-duty hanging system has been installed and furniture moved in. The 82sq m hall with high ceilings and plenty of wall space is now capable of hosting not only wall art, but also sculptures. Rosana became not only the designer of this premise , but also the curator of art expositions.

After 80 years, the painting of the Blessed Ceslaus, O.P (Czesław Odrowąż, patron of the Sedlnitzky family) will return to the Bílovec chateau to protect this ancient aristocratic mansion. Thanks to the combined forces of Mr. Castellan Eduard Valeš and the renowned painter Rosana de Montfort this task will now materialise.
A blissful idea to return the painting of the bl. Ceslaus back to the chateau was born at the end of this summer, when the chateau acquired a beautiful baroque frame into its collections. A frame without a picture is already asking for a valuable piece of art.
The task, albeit difficult, was taken up by the painter Rosana de Montfort, who after 27 years abroad has returned to the Czech homeland. She has been painting since the age of four and it was the study of the old masters that led her to a successful artistic future.
It was at the very same chateau in Bílovice that she had an exhibition of her paintings this year, showing not only modern works but also paintings in the nostalgic style of ancient centuries.
The picture is over 2 meters tall and is painted with oil paints on linnen. Unfortunately, only smaller digital photograph is used for the reproduction, however as the work progresses, the image will be very close to the original. The whole process lasted 4 months and is approaching the grand finale.
On December 7, 2019, the Dean of Bílovec P. Ing. Mgr. Lumír Tkáč will bless the painting after it has been revealed. After that the members of the Chateau Bílovec Guard hang the picture in its place in the Great Dining Room of the Chateau, where the picture of the patron of the Sedlnitzky family will be presented to the public and become part of the chateau collections.
