Art Event, Exhibition

Polish Expo “Ontmoetning III” at the Castle in Rhoon.


My time is very tense lately and I do not always have time to sit down and write what’s happening in my life. I should more often advertise the events in which I participate. Recently, I was able to show two of my graphics at the Polish exhibition at the castle in Rhoon. The exhibition was attended by ten Polish artists with very different works of those who create and live in the Netherlands. It was already the third exhibition from the series “Ontmoeting”, the first took place in 2012 in Capelle a / d Ijssel, and the second in Spijkenisse in 2016 (I was even a co-organizer). Both the opening on October 7 and the closing of the exhibition were full of great people and good energy. I enjoyed a lot the lecture on Polish art prepared by Mr. Waldemar Pankiw, the organizer of the exhibition with PNKV. Also the ending of the exhibition on October 28 brought a pleasant impression caused by the concert of Anka Kozieł. Every weekend something interesting happened, unfortunately I could not participate in it. According to the organizers, the exhibition was visited by about 250 people. I really like such meetings. However, I decided that I would give up exhibitions for a while so that I could concentrate on working and creating new things.

The invitation includes a reproduction of embroidery by Iśka van Kempen Jarnicka.

OPEN Expo Schiedam

OPE VG_Affiche DEF.jpg


This coming weekend we will enjoy OPEN Expo at the Schiedam Museum. There will be works of 136 artists to see. As a resident of Schiedam. I was asked to invite an artist from outside this town. My choice fell on Violetta Riedel, who specializes in portrait photography. Her photographs are unusual, very individual, original, looking almost as paintings. Her website.

Here, underneath, I quote a short text about the exhibition from the press release.

The concept is simple: Schiedam artists ask a non-Schiedam colleague as a guest to exhibit for four days at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. “The large amount and diversity of registrations is overwhelming and impressive”, says Open Expo Schiedam, the driving force behind the exhibition. From 6 to 9 September you can visit the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam for free to see and experience the major art event.
