I was literally showered with flowers and love more than hundreds of friends....
I would like to thank Mrs. Hance Bončková from the Slezskoostravská Gallery and her team for flawless organization, unceasing care and attention.
I thank the council of Silesian Ostrava for making the whole event possible.
I thank Antonín Gavlas for facilitating the exhibition.
I would also like to thank Libor Hřivnáč, who was supposed to introduce the opening, but unfortunately could not participate due to health reasons.
😘😘Of course, the biggest thanks goes to my beloved husband Russell and my mother, who fight with me to ensure that we have culture in Bílovec....
Thank you all so much for an amazing opening and an unforgettable HALFTIME. ☀️
The exhibition can be seen until 19.11. 2023 on weekends. For those who missed the opening, 15.10. there will be a comment!
For my 50ieth birthday this year I have organised an exhibition, which will be remembered for the rest of my life. The name "HALFTIME" suggests, that the age of 50 is the half life of human life if he/she is lucky.
Reflecting upon the events of my few recent years, I intend to leave a mark in the gigantic book of art history. Even if it is just few words... Here I am, here I was, here I remain in the hearts of those, who know me and those who never did.
This exhibition hosts most of my show pieces and will distinguish a mark in my creation to "The time before" and "Ever after".
It is my honour to have the gallerist, curator, poet and artists, Libor Hřivnáč, at this venue, who is making the foreword and introduction of my life's work.
The guitar virtuoso, Jakub Jalůvka, will accompany the event with dulcet tones and support the most important expo of my life.
You are cordially welcomed!
This year we celebrate the 3rd year of the project, which is designed to save animals.
We start the auction of Saxány's painting for Wandering Happiness, z. s. with the godfather and great musician Pavle Váně!
Lucie Hlavinková writes the fairy tale for the auctioned and pictured animal hero.
We open the review together and tell you something about the project and our shared destiny,
but also about the news we are preparing.
It is our pleasure that our collaboration with Romana Štryncl developed quite naturally into a traditional traveling project. We will be very happy if you come to Kroměříž to support us at the opening and enjoy a spectacular experience in the Archbishop's Castle and gardens. If you're in the mood for a trip, here's a real program for the whole day!
We look forward to!!!

In the castle premises, they will be presented not only in the gallery, but in the castle corridors. The vernissage will be accompanied by a live performance in which the entire group of exhibitors will participate.
The exhibition will last until August 31, 2023. There will also be light refreshments at the opening.

We look forward to you!
👏👏👏 Today was full of respect, thanks and celebration of humanity in honor of JUDr. Moritz, single lord Daublebský from Sterneck, holder of the Righteous Among the Nations title at his native house (born 1912).
I had the honor, in cooperation with Mr. Castellan Eduard Valeš, to make a commemorative plaque for him, for the unveiling of which the sons of Dr. Moritz the free lord of Daublebsky from Sterneck, Karl and Georg. Dr. Tomáš Sterneck and his mother came from České Budějovice, and from Prague the representative of the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic, Mr. Michal Pelíšek. A big thank you goes to the Bílovec town management and the Cultural Center for their support. The patronage of the entire event was taken over by the Austrian ambassador to the Czech Republic, Dr. Bettina Kirnbauer. Here I am just copying the words of the ambassador that I read to the participants:
Die Übernahme des Ehrenschutzes heute ist für mich eine große Freude und ich danke Ihnen für diese wortvolle Initiative zur Errichtung einer Gedenkafel zur Erinnerung an Moritz Daublebsky-Sterneck.
Dankbarkeit und Hochachtung sind wohl fägtge Assoziationen die wir mit Moritz Daublebsky-Sterneck verbinden. Dankbarkeit für sein heroics Eintreten für verfolchte Mitmenschen, die er vor einem grausamen und ungerechten Tod bewahrt hat. Hochachtung vor der Charakterstärke und der Aufrichtigkeit, die er in den dunkelsten Stunden unserer Geschichte demonstriert hat.
Moritz Daublebsky-Sterneck als Gerechter unter den Völker dient uns als Vorbild und diese Gedenktafel wird auch die nachfelden Generation an ihn und an das Talmud-Wort erinnern:
"Wer auch immer ein einziges Leben rettet, der ist, als ob er die ganze Welt gerettet hätte".
Ich danke Ihnen.
🙏Thank you very much to my dear husband for helping me get through today in peace and comfort.
🙏 I thank Kastelán for the opportunity to participate in the beautiful things that make Bílovec and its cultural heritage our new home. 🙏Thank you to the mayor, Martin Holub, for his help in unveiling the memorial plaque and for the rich hospitality.
🙏 I thank the relatives of our Bílové hero for coming from such a distance to see and honor his memory with us.
On the occasion of today's celebration of the day of the city of Bílovec, people flocked to our gallery all day to see the exhibition of Ray Campulkova and Marek Sebastian Coutierre. Special guests from Vienna also came to see, the sons of Dr. Moritz the free lord of Daublebsky from Sterneck, Karl and Georg. Dr. Tomáš Sterneck and his mother came from České Budějovice, and from Prague the representative of the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic, Mr. Michal Pelíšek.
Thank you all for visiting our exhibition and the city of Bílovec!
Welcome to the ceremonial opening of the exhibition of two artists from Kladno, namely RAYA ČAMPULKOVÁ and MAREK SEBASTIAN COUTIERRE
Raya is a very talented portraitist and I am very much looking forward to the selection she has created for this event. Marko's work moves on the edge of sculpture and artistic sculpture, here he presents futuristic armor and sculptures in a post-apocalyptic spirit. The musical program will be provided by our favorite court musician, guitar virtuoso and lecturer, Jakub Jalůvka.
The exhibition will be presented by gallerist and curator Rosana de Montfort.
You are hereby cordially invited to the opening, which will take place on 29 April 2023 at 15:00 at the MORITZ Gallery.
The Voluntary theater group Odřivous will also perform at the castle with a play called Malá Čarodějnice. In the castle rooms, you will be able to see dramatized stories from the times of the castle owners and meet alchemists, spiritualists and other quacks.
Do not miss this wonderful opportunity at Bílovec Castle and the MORITZ Gallery.
This is my THANK YOU.💝
Unfortunately, we didn't fit in. Mrs. Irenka counted over 60 people 😱 in a city where I thought I had only a few friends! Thank you all very much for the powerful atmosphere and your precious time. Gallery for oncology patients and supporting artists hosts my exhibition until 11.07.2023. Sale from the paintings will help the gallery to survive. If you are interested in a painting, send me an email and I will arrange all.
It never imagined I would moderate my exhibition for an hour like a talk show..
After the introduction of the director, Ing. Pavly Müllerová, Tanja and I kicked things off on stage in an incredible way. I think we could do our own talk show. Then when she came out and sang live, the fact that she didn't need a microphone was confirmed. She has a voice like a BELL!
The commentary was lively and I completely forgot how many paintings the Cultural Center team and I actually installed. Oh, and according to a spontaneous decision, Russell also has paintings there! A lot of people helped me with everything, and to them I owe a huge big THANK YOU.
See you on the comment board before the concert of the rock band CITRON on June 9, 2023!
The exhibition "MY TRICKS" in the STRETCH Cultural Center will last until June 22. 2023
Rosana De Montfort, Messenger of Post-Humanism. Dynamic painting with spatulas, but also perfectionist processing of the figures and their faces. Oil paint, acrylic, sand, plaster and varnishes. These are the attributes of the element called Rosana, which captivated visitors to the Hřivnáč Gallery in Opava yesterday. The audience was literally hanging on her lips during her guided tour, which followed the opening of the exhibition. They listened to her personal but also fictional stories of the heroes of her paintings. They penetrated the world of evolutionary shift and the gradual disappearance of organic life forms on Earth. Rosana revealed herself at yesterday's opening and vividly demonstrated what a personal artistic confession means. She revealed her dream world, where the border between portrayed and real characters disappears.
Vernissage 24.11. at 17:00 in Gallery Hřivnáč in Opava
This is what a very elaborate project looks like, in which almost 40 international important artists participated (including me, that's the demi-robot). I am in awe of the logistical and organizational talent of the gallerist, curator, poet and artist that is Libor Hřivnáč. It was a great opening with the participation of about 110 heads! Thank you for letting me be a part of it.
Artists not only from the Czech Republic but also from all over the world participate in the project:
Iveta A. Dučáková, Daniel Balaban, Svatoslav Böhm, Pitt Brandenburger, Peter Cvik, Predrag Djakovic, Lubomír Dostal, Renata Drahotová, Václav Fiala, Pavel Forman, František Hodonsky, Jaroslav Hruby, Libor Hrivnač, Pavel Charousek, Boris Jirků, Jiří Kačer, Igor Kitzberger, Sebastian Kitzberger, Ingrid Kitzberger, Daniel Klose, Eva Ei Constantinidus, Antonín Kroča, Jiří Marek, Dominik Mares, Rosana De Montfort, Květa Monhartová, Iva Mrázková, Marcela Mrázková, Vaclav Rodek, Zuzana Růžičková, Vera Siffner, Martin Sněhota, Jan Spevaček, Pavel Strakoš, David Strauss, Ivo Sumec, Edward Syty, Zita Švírová,

Who hasn't been, should see it! 👌👌👌Thank you to my beloved husband Russell De Montfort for the beautiful photos!
My show paintings go to hiding in in the winter season. Gallery MORITZ is full of the biggest canvasses, which usually never meet during the year. If you are a collector, a gallerist or just simply love art and want to see them, just give me a call and I can arrange a viewing. Chateua Bílovec is cold over the winter, so take a warm jacket.
When your friend opens a gallery, it's like coming home. Tea is on the table next to an open art book, there are cute animals on the floor chilling and a good friend comes by as well.... Well, because we are friends, care for each other and help one another. So although I thought I won't do any more gallery exposure this year, but this one is just no stress.

In the MORITZ Castle Gallery, this year we were able to welcome thousands of visitors not only to exhibitions of contemporary art, but also guided tours, openings, painting courses and music concerts. The interior also underwent a stylish renovation, in which local citizens and companies participated, so that it could enter the prestigious art scene and welcome not only local artists, but also important personalities from all over the Czech Republic.
May Day started with the opening of a native of Novi Jičín, Antonín Gavlas, who introduced himself with his exhibition "Soul of Light", where we got to know not only his paintings, but also sculptures, sculptures and digital images. Our guitar virtuoso Jakub Jalůvka played for us with the talented accordionist Anežka Gebauerová.
The members of the TELEMANNIA music group also came to make the gallery walls sound, who performed a Jazz-Baroque concert performed by M. Kratochvílova and M. Friedl, Fantasie per flauto traverso e contrabbasso by G.P. Telemann. We also welcomed members of the consort of Renaissance transverse flutes and Renaissance lutes "TOURDION A BOHEMIAN LUTE ORCHESTRA", whose performers Anežka Šejnohová, Radka Kubínová, Mirka Holá, Marta Kratochvílová, Jan Čižmář, Zuzana Meleková and others performed court music songs, period dances, and they also headed into the category of liturgical and folk music.
The exhibition season was rounded off by an exhibition entitled "MEETING IN TIME", whose participants literally took the visitors' breath away with their installation. The members of the artistic group Magnus Gradus, Jaroslav Jerry Svoboda (Prague, Vancouver), Radomír Bárta (Brno, Sebranice), Rosana de Montfort (Bílovec, London) invited a special guest, who was the world-famous painter and surrealist Michal Janovský (Česká Lípa). The paintings of Jaroslav Jerry Svoboda and Rosana de Montfort were attuned to the same wave because they both deal with the topic of post-humanism. Among the gigantic paintings of Michal Janovský, the metal sculptures and sculptures of the Brno artistic blacksmith and sculptor, Radomír Bárta, stood out. The experience of the exhibition was musically enriched by Jakub Jalůvka with a band that played old rock classics and his own compositions.
The exhibition took place under the patronage of Rosana de Montfort, who founded the Moritz Gallery in cooperation with the management of the town of Bílovec and the castellan of Bílovec castle, Eduard Valeš. The goal of the project was to show that people from different regions, genres and art technologies can combine their talents into one cultural experience for the general public even outside the big cities, namely in Bílovec.
We would like to thank the city management for their close cooperation and support. We thank the castellan, Eduard Valeš, for his helpfulness and dedication. We would like to thank the company Denas Color for sponsoring floor paints and work commitment, and finally to Petar Pavlík and his team for their assistance in the construction of the exhibition architecture. First of all, we thank you, the visitors, for your abundant participation!
(Prague, Vancouver) expressive painter and symbolist
(Česká Lípa) surrealist painter, draftsman and lecturer
(Brno, Sebranice) artistic blacksmith, sculptor and lecturer
(Bílovec, London) surrealist painter, sculptor, curator
The presentation of these four artists in one exhibition is probably one of the most interesting in the Moravian-Silesian Region, as it is a connection of friends with significant destinies in the art industry. Each of them has erudite exhibitions and international collaboration behind them. Each of them can boast collectors on many continents. Their union is quite unusual in this exciting time when people are largely competing with each other. Without prejudice, under a surreal sky, it tells the story of ourselves.
The project of the Magnus Gradus art group (Svoboda, Bárta, Montfort) will welcome a special guest, Michal Janovský, a leading Czech surrealist, to the exhibition. The exhibition takes place under the patronage of Rosana de Montfort, who founded the Moritz Gallery in the summer of 2020 in cooperation with the Bílovec city administration and the castellan of the Bílovec castle, Eduard Valeš.
The exhibition under the working title "MEETING IN TIME" will thus be proof that people from different regions, genres and art technologies can combine their talents into one cultural experience for the general public even outside the big cities, precisely in Bílovec.

You all know by now I am a builder too. So it becomes very natural for me to transform any interior space. Because of the new project "ENCOUNTER IN TIME" in the Gallery Moritz, where we welcome some very important colleagues, I have decided to give the gallery a makeover. With a help of several people we have transformed this place from 18th century hall into 21st century exposition space. Local company Denas Color has sponsored not only floor paint, but also man power. The directors of the company came personally to help and apply the treatment and paint. A friend of ours, Petr Pavlík has helped with the building of "THE GATES", a structure made of steel and plasterboard in the middle of the room. My dear husband helped with the electric installation and logistics. And so Gallery MORITZ is ready to dazzle!
Thank you all! XX

We are here alone,
in front of the picture
and it shouts at me!
Do you still have a soul?
What are you looking at me for?
Has it dawned on you yet?
We are deep in it, upto our ears!
I stand quietly. I stare dumbly.
I'm up to my ears in it.
No one anywhere and yet, so much shoutingin my soul...
We have a lot of beautiful memories and this video proves how lovely the atmosphere at this particular art review was.
Thanks to the State Castle Lysice and its Mrs. castellan Bc. Martina Rudolfová for enabling this wonderful art project in a baroque gem.

Another splendid idea was born in the heads of lectors at the College of Mikulas Kopernicus.
Art classes for the students aged 15 was a vast success and many wouldn't tell the difference between their works and a production of an erudite artist. Each student has chosen to paint a different portrait and achieve a likeness their own way, with their own technique. My role was to simply show the young people all possible techniques and to nudge them in the right direction. The artworks have been exhibited at the foyer of the college and later at Gallery MonAmi in Bilovec. A great way of sharing my own experience and helping others to embrace their own creativity. A great time!
Oil on canvas 520 x 150cm, year 2022
Wide angle painting dedicated to the spirit of this time.
It will be exhibited on April 6, 2022 in the Passage of Czech Design in the ARTVARIUM project, curated by PhDr. Renáta Mužíková, PhD and the gallery are headed by PhDr. Hana Homolková and Štěpánka Zinkaizlová.
What is behind this triptych?
It's about us as we keep shouting ... For the last 3 years it's been a soda for all of us .... either it's: "mee too", or vax = antivax, or the isis, or the parliament, or the trumpeters, or biden, or pope, or pedophilia, XX-XY-XXZ and divided toilets, or rescue from Kabul, bombed by Israel-Palestine, Ukraine, etc etc ... And it will be worse. And how should a person live a normal life at such a time ???? Probably normally ... calamities probably belong to us. And one day the eternally balanced sanguine Anunaki will return and make an end to our comfort ... and there will be peace.
For overseas sale through Singulart - London/Paris
For sale in EU please get it touch with me.
For this charity gala I have been asked to donate a painting, which would make the future owner happy and raise money for the people in ultimate need. The friend of the organiser has told me to paint a picture od an ocean, because apparently my collectors love those the most. So ocean it is....
"A MOMENT FOR MY SELF" 100x100cm, oil on 3D canvas, goes to someone with a big heart out there. I wish that person a perpetuating happiness and a great feeling from a good deed done!

Group exhibition in Prague city centre, curated by PhDr. Renáta Mužíková, PhD. and managed by PhDr. Hana Homolková. The selected artists enjoy the full time 24 hrs access in the time of Covid lockdown. The project was started as a response to the current health restrictions and offers the artists boundary-free wide exposure in the heart of the metropole.
This is an exhibitionof 3 artists united in one privetly owned gallery in the townsqare of Orlová. The destiny has mixed the cards a bit and madethe completely random individuals meet in one project, where abstractions, cities and steel sculptures meet.
Rosana , has curated an exhibition of Silvie Kořistková in Gallery MonAmi in 2021. Radomír Bárta is a sculptor, who has become Rosana´s close friend, she in turn introduced his artwork into the De Montfort Art collection. All participants share a genuine passion for art that does not succumb to any fashion trend or favourite hit of the year. All 3 create selflessly, fearlessly and unbound.
These are the works of 12-year-old children from my painting course at the mathematics high school in Bílovec.
The atmosphere in which these gems were born was as tense as a bowstring! The young artists have dealt with difficult topics and I was afraid they would be disappointed with their own achievements. They weren't. Neither of them made a painting not worth hanging on the wall. We have embraced a wide range of themes from Japan, through the Alps to pop art, village hills, seas and lightning, to dynamic abstractions!
It was very challenging, but it was worth it. My teaching of painting at GMK was an adventure of a lifetime. We will make the paintings review in the spring and surely at some point we will meet in front of the easle again. Thank you.
Group exhibition of several artsists, who are participating on the charitable cause, which will benefit single mums, who are the sole earners.
Group's paintings will be found in two venues of this noble baroque castle complex, the vast monastery, which houses large exhibitions, concerts and symposioums, and the antique chapple, which interiors are the perfect fit for expositions of statues and smaller paintings.
For this occasiona, Rosana is donating a tripple signed painting reproduction "3 WOMEN"
The originals are NOT FOR SALE and the copies are made only 1 time for this specific event. Do you feel like saving lives? This artwork is going to feed several families and pay for school meals for many children. And for that priviledge you get 3WOMEN to mesmerise you for ever.
