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.

Yesterday I was able to hang my works in the now-defunct Kralingen Gallery. For the last time, this place, which has recently changed owners, will open its doors to Krunstroute Kralingen Crooswijk. It is very possible that this is the last art exhibition in this place. It is so sad when you think about it. The more so that the previous owners put a lot of heart and time into the functioning of this place. It will be remembered as an inseparable and important part of Kralingen’s history. I am glad that I can show you some of my works there for the last time. I regret that I could not have a larger exhibition there.
In addition to showing up during the upcoming weekend at the Kralingen Gallery, they will also be able to see you at the Den Toom wine bar at Vredehofstraat 74, 3062 TC Rotterdam. At the Lusthofstraat, the kunstmarkt will take place tomorrow and there you will be able to buy my works from the LADY KANGAROO and t-shirts series.
The program of the upcoming week is very interesting. Throughout Kralingen Midden & Oost you can see the works of ten artists. And participate in concerts and performances. All news about Kunstroute Kralingen-Crooswijk can be found on this page: http://www.kunstroutekralingencrooswijk.nl/site/
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.
This weekend 11th edition of Kunstroute Kralingen Crooswijk 2017. At the time of this huge event there are really many (over one hundred) artists to see, there will also be some unusual shows. More information you find at the site. My work can be seen on October 7th and 8th between the hours 12-6 pm in Pro Rege at Oudedijk 113 more info.
