Open House at the May Thursday-Night-Feature
(4 May 2017 - 13 May 2017)

“Open House”


On Thursday May 4th Readytex Art Gallery opens her doors for what is already the 5th Thursday-Night-Feature of this year. After the large solo exhibition of John Lie A Fo, which had its grand opening on Thursday the 6th of April, we have scheduled a more relaxed activity for the TNF of this month. We welcome all of our guests to join us in the gallery for a special ‘Open House’ evening during which they can enjoy another beautiful selection of our varied art collection. Noteworthy this month is that the exhibition on the first floor has been put together by one of our own most experienced artists Kenneth Flijders, in this case fulfilling the role of guest curator.

At the last ‘Open House’ exhibition held on the March TNF the curator task was assigned to artist Rinaldo Klas and it is now the turn of his good friend and colleague to fulfill this role. The choices made by Kenneth Flijders are based upon a specific theme. He selected artworks that broadly reflect upon social circumstances in Suriname as well as in other countries abroad. The social circumstances portrayed are varied and the way in which each artist visualizes his or her theme is totally unique. This will undoubtedly result in a diverse and fascinating presentation. 

And while the guest curator took the exhibition on the first floor upon himself, the team at Readytex Art Gallery took on the responsibility of switching up the exhibitions in the rest of the gallery.

The ‘Open House’ on the Thursday-Night-Feature of May 4th, gives art lovers the opportunity to enjoy, in good company, the wonderful ambiance of the gallery and the special collection of fine art displayed throughout. The team of Readytex Art Gallery and many of the artists, including of course Kenneth Flijders, will be present to answer any questions that you may have about the works of art. The doors of Readytex Art Gallery are open on this evening from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

Everybody is welcome!

Featured artist(s)

Dhiradj Ramsamoedj
In the past paintings by Dhiradj Ramsamoedj were mostly oils on canvas on which the paint was applied with a pallet knife. Now he paints mostly with a brush which results in a smooth, flat finish. The style has become less realistic and the people in his recent work have a completely different appearance. Humans still form the main theme in his work, but the faces of the characters now all have a similar, undefined shape in which the eyes, nose, mouth and other features are only hinted at subtly...

Leonnie van Eert

The artist finds her inspiration in natural forms, with nature close to home, and in the use of symbols from different cultures. Uses and forms from the Indigenous, Maroon and Javanese culture in Suriname are close to the artist who also looks across Africa, Columbia and Peru. An artwork usually comes from a sketch. The end result does not have to be the same as the sketch shows.

It is special to make the world from different perspectives. A blend of cultures that reflects the world from both the past and the present from all over the world. It is the cultural heritage we have received from our ancestors and must cherish. That's what I'm trying to express with my work.
