Yesterday we had a very successful opening of the Summer Exhibition at Villa Holsby. In spite of nice weather a lot of people came, much more visitors than expected. It was a great reward after days of hard work to get everything ready!
Pontus Ikander, street artist, made a large painting during the day, finishing it as the first guests came. Check his Myspace site: http://www.myspace.com/p_ontus
Matthias van Arkel exhibited some of his fascinating silicone rubber works and a few prints. For more, check his website: http://www.matthiasvanarkel.com.
Jacob Felländer exhibited two very large photos of New York – a cool contrast to the country landscape around Villa Holsby. Check http://www.jacobfellander.com.
Last, but not least, architect Alex van de Beld had built a brick wall inside the window in one of the rooms, and together with his colleagues, he displayed three small models of fascinating house ideas for this region.
All visitors were very positive, we all received great feedback. I am very grateful to my colleagues, who wanted to contribute to this event. The exhibition continues until the middle or end of August.
