The university invited me to show the paintings in their entrance hall, on the ground floor of the Huygens building. An ideal spot for exhibiting large and small artifacts. The Faculty of Arts is organizing exhibitions for a moment of joy and inspiration between colleges, experiments, administration, consultations and other activities.
The university has a free admittance.

Van Spijker tot spijker is an exhibition with a selection of artworks from the living rooms of the Spijkerkwartier (a quarter in Arnhem), on view at Arnhem Museum. Which art does the residents of the Spijkerkwartier have on their walls and why? Kunst op de Koffie and Museum Arnhem asked them to send in a piece of art that means a lot for them and that they want to share with a large audience. A selection of the most special works and stories will be on view in the Arnhem Museum. The proud owner of one of my drawings sent in the work, now we can show off in the museum together!

Neel Diekema, Justin Prang, Roos Ticheler and Sabine Winters and I worked very hard in creating this edition of the GET FED art fair. After months of preparation it is finally time for the second edition of the GET FED art fair, and we are happy to invite you!
In cooperation with Sonsbeek International and ArtEZ, GET FED Foundation creates a versatile and fascinating overview of the contemporary art scene, with Arnhem as a midpoint between the Randstad and the Ruhr areas.
By presenting 25 artists from the Netherlands and Germany, GET FED art fair acquaintes the audience with a current and diverse range of contemporary art, from young to old and from painting to performance artist. For the wallet there is also something for everyone: a wall full of moderately priced works makes clear that art is accessible to everyone.
GET FED art fair will be opened on Thursday, June 2nd at 19:00 by Saskia Bak, Director of Museum Arnhem.
More information about the fair can be found HERE.
I am awarded with this year’s Sieger White Award from the Prince Bernhard Culturefund!
A few months ago the news came suddenly out of the blue. For a while I had to silently enjoy it, but now it’s official and true!
This scholarship is presented for talented artists under the age of 35 from the Eastern region of the Netherlands and consists of a sum of € 25,000 meant for a publication and a solo exhibition at a prominent gallery in the Netherlands.
The Sieger White Award is named after the artist couple Fred Sieger (1902-1999) and Helen Sieger-White (1911-2010). The scholarship is awarded every two years and supports artists in the field of painting in the broadest sense of the word. The rewarded artist from the Eastern Netherlands region should have a modest oeuvre. The grant is intended as additional support for more publicity for his or her work. Previous winners are Omar Koubâa and Kim van Norren.
The Sieger White Award will be presented on Saturday, November 26th, 2016 at Reuten Gallery in Amsterdam. My work will be on show in the gallery from November 19th until December 23rd, 2016.
