Eighty-five photographs were displayed last night at the opening of the photographic exhibition ‘EXPOTEQUE 2016’ at the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum.
22 members of the Guayaquil FotoClub and 8 of the Cuenca FotoClub participated in the sample, a total of 30 authors, including: Polo Umpierrez, Allan Leon, Carlos Ribadeneira, Mariuxi Zambrano, Edmundo Morla, Raul Garcia, Robinson Chiquito, Jefferson Castro, Rafael Robayo, Roberto Ledesma, Washington Izquierdo, Giovanni Zalco, Rafael Rosales, Bruno Bacigalupo, Esperanza Fernandez, Diego Guerrero, Matias Reque, Vicente Manzur, Alejandro Oviedo, Jonathan Bazan, William Temdo, Javier Paz, David Quishpe, Santiago Garcia, Esteban Cherrez, Mauricio Velez, Rolando Quishpe, Victor Goyo, Juan Tosi and Juan Carlos Arango.
The images exposed for the Expoteque 2016 (portraits, landscapes, still lifes, nature, etc.) are the result of photos chosen during the Photo Review event, held once a month at the Guayaquil FotoClub, where images are rated with a score ranging from 1 to 5. The photo with the lowest score must be burnt and ‘never see the light again’ (1), and the most prominent reaches the highest rating: 5 for its excellence.
After this selection, the Expoteque 2016 takes place, a photographic sample held by the Guayaquil FotoClub for the third consecutive year. The novelty is that this is the first time this exhibition takes place in the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum. This is also the first time the Guayaquil FotoClub has invited the Cuenca FotoClub to participate with 10 photographs of authors from Cuenca.
 
As a contribution to the culture of our country, this time the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum along with the Guayaquil FotoClub, undertook the task of organizing the “Expoteque 2016,” a magnificent example of art, whose photographs are on display at the LANN museum halls from September 22 until October 13, 2016.
It is noteworthy that the first event organized by the Guayaquil FotoClub took place in 2014 at the Casona Universitaria; in 2015 it was held at the National Institute of Cultural Heritage in las Peñas; and this year at the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum.
Those interested in becoming part of the the Guayaquil FotoClub “must attend the events we organize and publish on our Facebook page (FotoClub Guayaquil). After attending three times, you automatically are an active member,” said Javier Paz, a member of the Guayaquil FotoClub, whose premises are located in the Santa Maria University.

The multiform and vibrant works of Eilrich Jacobs

 
Eilrich_Jacobs_2_museo_luis_noboa_naranjo
About 20 works by German artist Eilrich Armin Jacobs were exposed last July 6 at the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum. The exhibition is a collection of the experiences lived by the artist in the last 20 years, which show his artistic maturity. Almost all paintings are oil on canvas or pasted canvas on wooden boards, which include a variety of shapes, high or low reliefs as well as a variety of techniques, elements and colors.
“German artist Eilrich Jacobs has participated in countless exhibitions nationally and internationally, he has a vast experience, which can be reflected in this sample with multiform works, that do not adapt to the conventional and common, and give it unique features. His works do not need to justify the representation of any figure in particular, but tend to use an own visual language, with varied meanings and full of vibrant colors, thus, the spectator can draw his own conclusions, evoking feelings that go straight to his mind, as there are not known images, he tends to focus on the sensations,” said Carlos Zuniga, spokesman of the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum, who that night presented the German painter.
 
Beginnings
Born in Norderney, one of Germany’s Frisian islands, Eilrich Jacobs, 78, discovered his vocation for art since childhood. During his childhood he painted landscapes of things or situations he saw on his island, this led him to study Arts Education at the Universities of Hamburg and Oldenburg, Germany (1957-1961).
Experience
Since 1961 Eilrich has been a professor of Art Education and Foreign Languages and Director of Schools (1980). To this we can add 21 years of professional experience in schools in Germany and 22 years in German schools in Latin America, of which we shall mention: the German School Alexander von Humboldt, in Guayaquil – Ecuador (1967-1975), German School Alexander von Humboldt, in Mexico city (1984-1988), German School Max Uhle, in Arequipa, Peru (1994 – 1997), German School Alexander von Humboldt, in Lima-Peru (1997-2002) and as a retired professor he kept working from 2002 at the German School Humboldt of Guayaquil-Ecuador until September 2012.
Today, Eilrich Jacobs, after living many years in this Andean country, considers himself Ecuadorean. “I am German, was German, now I’m more Ecuadorian than German, after so many years living here.”

According to Eilrich, the artist should not be limited only to paint and this is his advice to all young talents who venture eagerly in this difficult field. “The new artists should use their talents, practice them, livinf them, yet they should not leave out of sight their progress in real life, because they must make a compromise between these two aspects: art and life,” concluded Jacobs.
