Show & Tell
Welcome back from vacation! Where did you go? Did you buy any art? Can we see it? On Saturday August 8th, 2009 we will feature a special 'show & tell' event at Landhuis Bloemhof as we near the end of the current exhibition "Waar gaat de reis naar toe?", featuring works of art bought while traveling. The intention is that anyone can bring her or his recently acquired work(s) of art to show and tell us about it. We would love to hear who the artist is, where you bought it, why you chose that particular piece and any anecdotes that may add sauce to the piece. We have invited Verele Ghering-Engels (museologist and appraiser) and Sonia Garmers (saleswoman-par-excellence) to join us that morning to discuss the pieces that are brought in. The basic questions we asked them to consider are: (1) Is this piece art, handcraft or kitsch? (2) Did the buyer get a good deal? Please be advised that the intention of the event is purely social and for entertainment purposes. Landhuis Bloemhof and her invited guests do not claim to provide a valid appraisal of your work of art or a proper evaluation of your purchase. We invite everyone who has recently bought a piece of art while on vacation to bring it to Landhuis Bloemhof on Saturday August 8th, 2009, between 10 am and 12 noon to 'show & tell' us all about the piece. No prior registration or reservation is necessary for this event. Refreshments will be served! For more information, please call us at 737-5775 or contact us via e-mail: michele@bloemhof.an
