Last week, I randomly stumbled upon a gallery opening and decided to take a peek inside I ended up discovering some intriguing pieces. Gallery Fons Welter has a new art opening of abstract nature based glass sculptures by artist Maria Roosen from 13 Mar 2010 – 24 Apr 2010. The gallery is located on Bloemstraat 140, 1016 lj Amsterdam.
Maria Roosen’s works are produced by what is given – natural elements, such as trees and the effect of the material, glass – and what she adds as an artist – human elements, manipulation, and imagination. The resulting interaction, between the givens, influence, and spontaneity, comes into play in Maria Roosen’s works as soon as the glass-blower fills them with breath, by blowing.
Last Friday, Kind Regards hosted a new art show titled “Big Mother Earth” with artists Arnar Ásgeirsson, Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson and Jan s. Hansen. The Danish and Icelandic artists exhibited sculptures, video installations, and drawings that made reference to fairytales and sagas along with with morality and dualism. Tonight, the same artists are having a Publication release. Come around 22.00 and DJ Bush Doof will spin some jams. Art, dj, and drinks! Map here.

As stated on their website, “Niet Normaal questions normality in a society that makes perfection the standard, in which market en economy create new social service groups and (bio) technological developments not only create chances but also limit them.”
Having been to the show last week, I was really impressed with the work on exhibition and the educational aspect behind most of the pieces. From video installations, to interactive works and life size photography, the international artists from all over the globe took the theme to heart and made the audience question this ambiguous concept of ‘normality.’
Tonight Kind Regards will be hosting a new art show titled “Big Mother Earth” with artists Arnar Ásgeirsson, Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson and Jan s. Hansen. The Danish and Icelandic artists will exhibit sculptures, video installations, and drawings that make reference to fairytales and sagas but will also deal with morality and dualism. Gallery opens at 8 pm. Drinks, art and fun. Map here.
