On this moment there is no art in the stockroom
The gallery is established in an old barn that goes with a more then one hundred year old farm. The foundation of the gallery was in the summer of 1988. At that moment there was a lot of ceramic art exhibited in the gallery.
Meanwhile the gallery has expanded a few times and now there is more space for bigger paintings and spatial art. Besides that the gallery has expanded with a stockroom, where art of many artists is shown.
Meanwhile the gallery was built in by a new building district. That is why the gallery is hard to find. The gallery is on a former dead end side-avenue of the Sportlaan. Now this street has been extended and there are houses around it (project de Venne).
An advantage of this happening was, that in 1996 the gallery could expand with a sculpture garden, where sculptures are exhibited in the summerperiod. In the garden are old maples, oaks and holly trees that belonged to the old woodwalls. At this moment the gallery has made its name. The artists come from the Netherlands and foreign countries. Visitors come from all around the country and abroad.
The last years the gallery is not always open.
