For three weeks now, since the 29th of July 2011, 56 art objects have been shown in a solo exhibition at the Beeldentuin called the Heerdenberg in Cadier en Keer, near Maastricht. On the opening night we received at least 80 visitors and since then about 50 daily. This means people are inspired, talk about art, visit from far or simply take their bikes and end up at the beautiful Sculpture Garden Heerdenberg in the lovely village of Cadier en Keer. We are grateful to Jose de Goede who hosted me and did a lot of publicity together with her family.
Last year part of this art work was hosted in a group exhibition on contemporary artists living in Zimbabwe, in Beijing and attracted numerour visitors.
As from Monday evening, the 22nd of August, the exhibition “Corals from Zimbabwe” will be seen at the restaurant Sofa in Maastricht, next to the Castle Hogeweerd. The owner Eveline, a fellow Rotarian will offer her space and beautiful setting to continue showing the bowls and corals, for the next coming weeks. Sofa has a luxurious part in a modern trendy setting and a very pleasant brasserie, as well as an exquisite garden area where one can have drink and relax.
Part of the proceedings will go the building of classrooms, library, gardens and drilling of a waterhole at a rural government school north of Harare, called Chengeta Primary.
