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.

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.
Rosana & Russell 'GITHYANKI' de Montfort at Château Kunín 18.07.2021
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.

When two women of a simmilar ilk meet, it usually leeds to an interesting arrangement. The destiny of Romy Štryncl and Rosana reaches back to year 1991, where they have met for the first time at the beaty pageant contest MISS CZECHOSLOVAKIA. After 30 years the two unite the step in the artistic project called ROMY&ROSE, which is an art exhibition and bennecifial auction.
Romy has painted a picture of cat named BELKA, who has been auctioned for wonderful 50.000 CZK (2300 USD). The winnings will go entirely to the Kočičí dům u Mourečka, depozitum Cat World z.s.

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.
The collection of nostalgic and romantic paintings will be shown in one of the most beautiful places in the Moravian-Silesian Region, in the Baroque Nový Jičín. The following companies will support the event:
Peter Brandl Gallery specializes in the sale of exclusive works of art. Being founded at the beginning of the nineties it was one of Prague´s first private galleries focusing mainly on European classical painting from the 17th to the 20th century.
During the past several years Petr Brandl Gallery realised a number of exceptional aquisitons having now on display masterpieces by leading Czech and European painters and sculptors. Petr Brandl Gallery has also sold works of art to prominent public collections. Since 2011 Petr Brandl Gallery resides at the very heart of Prague and occupies new exhibitional areas of Franciscan cloister in Jugmann Square. The two-floor space of 300 square meters houses a collection of valuable Czech, Austrian, German, French, Italian and other European works of art. (from the gallery website)
From 01.06.2019 exposition in Olomouc, Dolní Náměstí 2, in a brand new Wine Bar called Pod Pálavou. The establishment is in the heart of the city centre, right on the Lower Square in a historical vaulted premises.

Brušperk is an ancient town in the heart of Northern Moravia. Exposition of paintings in the oldest Public House in the country will be conceptuated as a battle between what we were and what we are becoming.
Who knows me a bit more will discover, that I love giving unwanted and unloved ideologies, dreams and objects a new lease of life. Some of these painting represent the nostalgia of the romantic past.
Second and contradicting part is the revelations of feeling I have about our future. Being environment aware, I see the logical path we walk on, which is demonstrated in my canvases.
The generous premises of Chateau Bílovec provides for several atmospheres at once.
The castle Theatre Café will offer more permanent home for the collection of paintings, which are in classical style, targeting more conservative art collectors and fitting very well within the castle rustic interior. These paintings are usually framed in lovingly restored gilded antique frames and the themes are of a more romantic flavour, pleasing the everyday-spectators, who will include the unique piece in their everyday life.
The top floor, specifically the music hall and auditorium, will host the temporary collection, which in its measurements and neo-surrealist style offers a fully different vision and perhaps an exclusive insight into the mind of the creator. The paintings are themed in fantasque flavour, keeping in touch with hints of street art, comics and sci-fi.
INTERVIEW WITH CZECH RADIO OSTRAVA (in Czech language)
Interview with Naďa Čvančarová from the radio station ČESKÝ ROZHLAS about the life long journey through virtual worlds and final closure of the circle in the process of return home after almost 3 decades abroad.
Current exhibitions for 2019 are a rewiew and a look back at the international experience, which she reflects in her art. Returning to her native roots brings with itself time of clarity, peace and focus on new visions to be captured.
We have had multiple orders on this painting and considering its technique, it will be rather hard to replicate it. Perhaps the interested parties will find another darling to purchase or be happy to wait for a simmilar painting like this one to be born.
For now, "ICE LAKE CITY" goes to United States shortly after it had its floating frame fitted!
Saatchi Art has found a new home for this giant. It is going across the whole world to Australia. The crate for this massive painting was built by the local wood works made to measure to ensure a safe transport. The symbolic of this painting is very significant, as some people see in it the reverse mirroring image of a Tarot Card of "The Hang Man", which symbolises a change in life, total turnaround and a vision from the opposite angle.
I personally see the painting as a logical result of an impulse of change in my life, where I aim to approach so far not exercised need to challenge my visions I want to paint. It is the answer to our so many questions of what to do with ourselves, and the answer is simply: "We cannot know the answer to all we question as it would kill us. We need to trust the universe, god or whatever leads our steps".
