the art trail in Tholen on Queen's Day (Kunstroute in Tholen)

This year was our 9th Kunstroute (art trail) in Tholen. A bit of an anniversary really since atelier28 opened her door exactly 8 years ago!! We displayed work from all the art classes (above and below): arcylic, oil, watercolour and etchings. 
My newest oil paintings of scenes from Zeeland were exhibited alongside the traditional clothing of Zeeland. 
The theme of the trail this year was 'art through the ages' and part of the opening ceremony featured 4 locals (2 men and 2 women) wearing the traditional dress for Tholen. It was a happy coicidence that I had the outfit on display too with the paintings! I'm so glad I've now finally seen the Tholen costume... 
I also demonstrated how etchings are made over the course of the 2 days which was warmly received. 
I'm glad too that I've finally met Annemiek Hamelink from Two Trees, a fellow etsian with roots here in Zeeland, who had, along with porcelain artwork, a beautiful collection of contemporary jewellery featuring traditional designs from Zeeland.


  1. Andrea, so nice to meet you. Sorry I missed the etching demo, hopefully next time.
    Take care, Annemiek
