The subtlety of paper, wintershow 2016

Je suis en présence de toi, watercolour on paper, 15 x 15 cm from Anet Duncan. A new work on paper representing the essence of the exhibition well: the subtlety of paper. In this winter exhibition at PontArte many works from many artists with a common underground: paper.

From the 11th of December till the 22nd of January 2017 at the Oranjeplein 203 in Maastricht: the subtlety of paper

Paper is often seen as vulnerable, light sensitive and off less value than works on panel or canvas, but on the other hand the medium asks for a careful way of working, with each mistake made visible and difficult to correct. The surface is mat, the fragility of the paper and the in this exhibition often small format, makes of works on paper very special artworks. Not the big eyecatchers to impress, but it forces to look in more detail and admire the work in an intimate setting.

The thought behind the exhibition in this holiday season is to offer a wide variety of works from a large number of artists, so it is easy to find a nice gift. The offer ranges from landscapes to abstracts on rice paper and from small to large.

Some highlights:

New watercolours from Anet Duncan (South Africa), small format, beautifully framed ask for an intimate look.

Work from Mario Pasqualotto (Spain) , Fragile from the series the 72 names of God.

Works from Mario Pasqualotto are also shown at the Museum aan het Vrijthof at the LUMA exhibition

We open the exhibition on the 11th of December at 14.30 hrs till 17.00 hrs. You are all invited to visit us. After the 11th the works can be seen on appointment till the 22nd of January 2017.

Green in Art

To open the new season in a fresh way, this time no solo show from one artist but a number of works selected around 1 theme:

“Green in art”

It is a selection of works in which the colour green is dominant. For some artists and viewers it has a direct relationship to nature and landscapes, For others it is the colour of hope.

Or, in the words of Wikipedia:
“Green associates with fresh and cool, with nature. For some it is the colour of hope and peace.”

Opening: Saturday afternoon September 10th, 16.00 hrs at the Oranjeplein 203, Maastricht. As always with drinks and some bites and lively conversations about Green!
