Readytex Art Gallery also open during NK 2018
(25 Oct 2018 - 3 Nov 2018)

Dear friends and art lovers,

As you may know, the 53rd edition of the ‘Nationale Kunstbeurs’ (NK) is about to open on Thursday the 25th of October. This year’s National Art Fair, which is open to the public from the 26th of October until the 3rd of November, takes place in an entirely new location, namely Hotel Krasnapolsky. This year however, as per the proposal of the organization of the NK, Readytex Art Gallery will also be open on several evenings during the NK. Readytex Art Gallery at the Steenbakkerijstraat 30, is located right around the corner from Hotel Krasnapolsky after all, and within just a few steps art lovers can enter our gallery for an additional four floors of beautiful Surinamese visual art.

The team of Readytex Art Gallery has worked hard to put together the memorable collection that is displayed throughout the entire home especially for this occasion. With new and recent works of art from the 19 visual artists affiliated with the gallery, in a variety of styles, media and techniques, Readytex Art Gallery adds a significant and worthy extra dimension to the NK 2018. We start on the opening night of October 25th. Taking into account the official opening ceremony at Hotel Krasnapolsky, Readytex Art Gallery opens her doors on the 25th of October from 8:00 pm until 10:00 pm. Afterwards the gallery will be open simultaneously with the NK, from Friday the 26th until Sunday the 28th of October and then again from Thursday the 1st until Saturday the 3rd of November, from van 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

And of course, guests can also visit the exhibition at Readytex Art Gallery during the daily opening hours of the gallery from Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, and on Saturdays from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm.

Make sure to take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy beautiful and thought-provoking Surinamese visual art in two fabulous locations in such close proximity of one another!

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.
