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.
