Symposium “Stof tot Kunst” 31 oktober 2014

All artists need regular opportunities to exhibit their work. This provides them with a focus to develop new ideas, and to present their art to the public, their colleagues and critics. We are therefore delighted to be able to stage regular European Art Quilt shows for them. The shows have been received with critical acclaim from visitors, including artists from all walks of live.
