Newsletter June 2015
It is summertime in our forest. Spring and summer are the most beautiful seasons of the year. We enjoy this time very much.
We are still busy with several exhibitions in the near future. At this moment we are planning the Art fair of Noord Brabant and Art Monaco. After Art Monaco I will have time to paint. However we still have exciting plans for the second half of this year.
Recently we got a few paintings back from a long-lasting exhibition. These are works from my first series “African dreams”. These paintings are very dear to me. As a special offer for his summer, we sell these painting for a summer price of € 500,- !
Let us know if you are interested, then I can send pictures of all the paintings with this very low price.
Until July 10 the Biënnale Art at the Quay 2015 can still be seen in Delft. I participate with 1 painting. The total space was limited to 70 cm. So it was difficult to make a painting of that size.
From May 21 till 24 we have participated Art Vancouver. I received the invitation for this show while we were in Miami where we exhibited in the Spectrum Show. The art fair in Vancouver has been organized for the first time and these international shows can open doors to other markets. Vancouver is the gateway to Asia!
Unfortunately, we experienced several problems in Vancouver. It turns out that our flight case with our paintings was still at customs at the opening day. Despite many confirmations from our transporting company, stating all was under control, we could not showcase our art works at the –important- opening night.. It took till Friday before we could set up and install the booth.
We have had also problems with this company at the New York Art fair. In the future, we will look for another, and more reliable transportation company.
After a cold start, we have met some nice and good contacts and leads as well..
Next and current shows:
Restaurant De Waag in Boxtel (Markt 32)
In this restaurant a four month changing exhibition has been set up. Together with 2 other artists I did this the first week of June. This exhibition will last till September. So there is plenty of time to visit the restaurant and enjoy a good meal, friendly service and good art.
Art Fair of Noord Brabant
From June 25 till 28 the Art fair of Noord Brabant is held in Lithoijen at Gallery Sous-Terre, Batterijstraat 23a. Opening: Thursday from 17.00 till 20.30, Friday and Saturday from 11.00 till 21.00 and Sunday from 11.00 till 18.00.
I will paint there ‘live’ as well. So it will be fun to watch how a painting is made and how it evolves.
I have some admission tickets left, so let me know if you want any.
Gallery Grang de Paul in Den Bosch
From July till August 3 I will participate in a group exhibition with a theme “The last supper”; a transition to the spiritual world.
I will exhibit 4 or 5 paintings there.
We are invited to exhibit on Art Monaco. The curator of the show was very enthusiastic seeing our paintings on the Spectrum show in Miami. She invites us to show our artworks in Monaco as well. This is a very exclusive art fair with many international visitors.
The show runs from July 9 till 12.
The first months of this year have been very busy with attending art fairs. We have been invited to show our art at several art fairs in the second half of this year; we are still considering which art fairs we will attend.
We have confirmed our presence at the Basel Art fair in Miami, for December this year.
We are working on a booklet, based upon a selection of recent painting.
Furthermore, we are also working on a very interesting project in China.
In our next newsletter we will elaborate about these projects.
