By the way, dont forget to 'like' us on facebook!!
This unique one-off lamp, made by Jim Kool from cast polyester resin and using led lamps, is amazingly light (excuse the pun!) and flexible. He calls it the 'triffid' lamp and it is on display in the gallery until the end of February..... unless of course someone snaps it up before then.

Fenny van de Wal
NOVEMBER EXPO Opening on sunday 6 November 14.00-16.00. Everyone welcome!

The inspiration for her recent series of work came to Fenny in Mérigot during a camping holiday in the Auvergne(F). 
Having spent her youth on a farm on the river Vecht, she developed a special relationship with water and nature and the surrounding stillness and space.
So its not surprising that she was intrigued and captivated by the magical fenland around Mérigot, where she camped in the summer of 2010. She recorded the landscape, carefully and respectfully  -  because Fenny is frightened of water. Water and the wateredges provide boundaries beyond which mystery dominates. Fenny consiously and deliberately seeks out these borders in her  paintings.

Its summertime and finally today there actually was some sun. However, despite the grey skies outdide, inside Galerie Zone it is definitely summer!

Our newest members are Nellie van der Knaap (whose flowery porcelain mugs have a lovely summery feel to them) and Reinhilde van der Klught (who makes unusual and delicate jewelry, as well as handbags). Do look at their work on our website under 'leden' (Dutch for 'members').

Ria van der Linden, from the silk-screen company 'Zeebra', is currently with us for a trial period. Her collection of hand-printed curtains, cushions, tablecloths and t-shirts have been an immediate hit - and she is also happy to work to commission, creating for example individual designs for curtains to suit the customers wishes.

And of course..... we have a new board hanging outside.....
so we hope to see you soon in Galerie Zone!
