Thursday ‘Frightly’ Feature op 2 November 2017
(2 Nov 2017 - 11 Nov 2017)

Thursday ‘Frightly’ Feature (Halloween Edition)


How time flies! We are already planning the one before the last Thursday-Night-Feature (TNF) at Readytex Art Gallery for this year. As always it will be another interesting and enjoyable evening spent together with our guests. This particular TNF will not involve a guest presenter, but similar to the last one it will be based on a special theme.

And again, the theme was largely inspired by a special event at or near this date. Considering the October 31st celebration of Halloween, we have decided to make the TNF on November 2nd into a Thursday ‘Frightly’ Feature!! We will decorate the ground floor of the gallery with works of art that in several ways, fit within the theme of Halloween. They can range from anywhere between somewhat dark, a little spooky or scary, or maybe just a bit mysterious. A selection filled with fun, yet suspenseful works of art. Curious? Of which artists do you think that we have selected works?

Don’t miss this Thursday ‘Frightly’ Feature on Thursday November 2nd! On this ‘dark’ Thursday night the doors of Readytex Art Gallery are open from7:00 to 9:00 pm.  Be there! Or else ….

The style has become less realistic and the people in his recent work have a completely different appearance.

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.

Sunil Puljhun
Sunil Puljun uses charcoal, pencils and acrylic paint in primarily black and grey hues. Sand and collage materials are occasionally used to add depth and structure to the surface of his work. The figures in his work are dark silhouettes exclusive of recognizable features and characteristics. Despite (or perhaps because of) the dark coloring and the unidentifiable human characters........
