12 july – 28 september Source > Wonder > World
Vera van Wolferen and Miriam L’Herminez

Vera van Wolferen is a well known stop motion animator. She makes also artworks: Architectural still lifes from white paper. With her detailed sculptures she creates an universe to dream of. In the gallery she shows new objects and an installation with different scaled artworks. Together they form an astonishing landscape.

With paper print on tule Miriam L’Herminez sews her images. The colorful textiles which are worn by men and women from Africa are one her initial concepts. Also she realises a very special neighbourhood project in the gallery with inhabitants. If you want to participate in this project, see events.

Studio

Loes Schepens’s studio is situated behind the gallery. Loes works with paper and graphic art. You can find her work in the gallery and on her website www.loesschepens.nl.

The age-old craft of manufacturing paper, with its large diversity of raw materials and techniques, is experiencing a revival. Workshops on how to make paper with vegetable fibres or according to eastern techniques are given on a irregular basis. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive more information.

Shop

In addition to the works of art in the gallery, special paper and cardboard objects are for sale in the shop, such as water-resistant bags, accessories, lamps and other interior objects.

We invite you to visit us whenever you are looking for an inspiring gift, or if you would like to have something personal made, for example a custom-made object, a unique work of art, or a guestbook for a special occasion.
