Art-enthusiasts,
After two postponements due to Corona, the third edition of the Makkum Art Festival is almost starting! During the Whitsun weekend (4 to 6 June) there is a lot to experience in this beautiful Frisian town. Makkum Art means 100 artists at 25 surprising locations. In addition, there is a program with music, workshops and demonstrations by artists.
I refer you to the website for all information: https://www.makkumart.nl/

My glassware can be seen at two locations. The ‘inside’ objects are located in Kerkelijk Centrum de Anker, number 5 of the route, address Buren 17. A total of 11 artists exhibit at this location.

My outdoor glass objects will have a beautiful place in the walled courtyard garden that belongs to the building at Turfmarkt 29, a national monument with stepped gable. The garden is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs.





From 11 to 26 June, ten of my pieces will also be on display at Kunst ter Plekke. This garden complex in The Hague at IJsclub pad 1 remains a permanent and popular place to exhibit. This year, in addition to my glassware, there is a lot of ceramics on display, supplemented with multimedia work by Loes Peters.
All details can be found at https://www.kunstterplekke.nl/



I would like to welcome you during the weekend of June 18 and 19 during the Open Ateliers Duinoord and surroundings.
Anneke Zwolsman will be a guest that weekend in my studio at home (Voltastraat 34 – The Hague). She works with felt and makes wall hangings and lamps, among other things.
The ateliers are open from 12:00 to 18:00. During the Open Ateliers weekend you can view an exhibition with work by all participants at Artgallery/real estate Koenders (address: 2e Schuytstraat 164/corner Reinkenstraat). Look at https://www.openateliersduinoord.nl/ for all details of the route.



2022: recent exhibition and what else is in the planning?

Last March I exhibited at gallery Zône in Leiden and then linked a promotion for Ukraine to the sales (25%). As a result, I was able to deposit more into giro 555 than usual and I felt a little less powerless for a moment. Thanks everyone who bought something!

Scheduled 2 1: End of September: Together with a very loyal group of glass workers that has been coming to the CKC in Zoetermeer on Saturday mornings for years, I participate in an art route organized by Stichting de Verbeelding in Pijnacker. The photo collages above give an anthology of the work of the 7 participants: on the left Angela, Ank, Nelleke and Marga. On the right Marly, Martine and Debbie. We are registered as Surprising Glass – More information in due course at https://www.deverbeelding.nu/kunstroute/

Scheduled 2: I am delighted to be invited to participate in: “Glas natuurlijk”…. Worldly stories 2022. As a visitor I often visited Cannenburgh Castle in Vaassen to admire the glass exhibited by the Glass Art Foundation. Now I can show you a number of my best pieces (maximum 8 is in the conditions) as a participant in the group exhibition. This exhibition will take place from 5 to 20 November 2022. The castle is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
