new exhibitions: photos and etchings

We're back in action again after a wee break before the season of art classes begins. This week we're beginning and along with all the courses we have a few treats exhibiting in the KunstCentrum (art centre).  Sjors van der Wulp, a local photographer, has a stunning display of back and white photos featuring scenes from around the island of Tholen, where we live. Capturing the atmosphere of unexpected as well as everyday moments was important to Sjors. I particularly like the hen!

Some months ago I came across the work of fellow etcher Emily Riley from Portland, Oregon in the USA. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. They are pretty small, about 5cm square, and packed with mesmorizing detail. The expressions on the children's faces radiate a kind of magic.

The art works will be on display in the KunstCentrum for the next couple of months. We're open Tuesday - Friday 14.00 - 17.00 and Saturday 11.00 - 16.00. Sometime's we're in atelier28 a short walk away...just pop in and say you'd like to see the exhibition...we look forward to welcoming you.
