Ronald Willemsen, Post Erasmuslaan 5, and Leo Gorter, grooots art design, cordially invite you for the start of the exhibition at the 4 of March and to the closing drinks on Sunday 25 March from 3 – 5 pm.

We show:

  • a unique collection of Gerrit Rietveld furniture as they were shown at the 2017 Vernieuwing aan de Vecht exhibition last year at Slot Zuylen.
  • felted wall panels by Feltgood by Ellen van der Wiel. In her own lyrical abstract style she designs and makes felt panels. The felt to be processed is divided up and put together again, with patterns staggered. She often works in one color scheme. This creates unique images. The panels are three-dimensional and have good sound-absorbing properties and can be custom made
  • wall objects by Marianne Kemp. She works with horsehair. Horsehair is strong and has a special glow. She works in an abstract style. She focusses in finding a balance between texture, color and movement. The wall objects can be custom made
  • geometrically abstract steel images by Carl Möller. His inspiration arises from curiosity about the various possibilities of giving shape to the square, the rectangle, etc. from the starting point ‘the form depicts nothing but itself’. This happens in a playful way and leads to exciting art. The images of Carl have a different experience from every angle and enter into a fascinating dialogue with the space in which they stand.
