A special opening of the gallery season
The opening of the gallery season has a long tradition, but more than in previous years we want to emphasize the resilience of the cultural sector, and the art world in particular, with the joint opening. As a result of the lockdown and the corona measures, galleries have been closed for a long period of time and almost all major art fairs that were planned this year skipped an edition. The opening of the gallery season is the first major event in the art world since the coronavirus outbreak to be open for public.
Online catalogue available from 29August at GalleryViewer.com
To optimally prepare you for the new gallery season, GalleryViewer.com offers a very extensive online catalogue containing all Dutch galleries opening the following weekend, complete with background information about the exhibitions, artist profiles, photos and available works (including prices).
