From 1st to 28th February we will be exhibiting work by the well known and highly respected contemporary Polish artist Wieslaw Skibinski..
Living and working in Poland he is at home with various mediums, such as painting, drawing, photography and animation,  however graphics remains his most important means of expression. Wieslaw’s prints captivate the viewer by the deceptive simplicity of the forms he creates, - within which he uses undulating decorative lines to give an enormous wealth of detail - and by his unusual use of a broad colour palette; from powerful black or red to subtle, almost monochromatic pastel tints.
Each one of Wieslaw’s prints is unique and recognisable.

Here in The Netherlands his prints are represented in the graphics collection of Stichting Witryna who have helped to make this exhibition possible.

The opening is on Sunday 3rd February. Everyone is welcome!

The first artist to exhibit with us in 2013 is Oesje Zegel (Harlingen 1948)

In her oilpaintings she creates her own mysterious world with themes based on sea- and land-scapes, still-lifes, church interiors and pilgrimages.
Her Dutch landscapes seem threatening and desolate, reflecting winter's icy coldness...... in her other wok she plays with lightness and depth to create an enigmatic atmosphere.

Oesje's work is on show until the end of January at Galerie Zone, Nieuwestraat 17b, Leiden
