Galerie Ramakers is celebrating its 25 years anniversary.
Some artists of the gallery were invited to make a temporary monumental work on the walls.
Near the windows Bob Bonies (1937) made an apparently simple, but in fact quite sophisticated work, while Ien Lucas (1955) made such an unobtrusive work on the opposite wall, that one would almost think it is a common feature of the gallery.
In the conservatory Yumiko Yoneda (1965) has made an installation of her sensitive drop-like sculptures which now slowly change with the changing of the daylight.
In between all this monumentality there are some smaller works by other artists of the gallery on show.
It is not a minor achievement to run a successful gallery for 25 years, and the general mood of the exhibition is warm and festive.
It also goes to show how important the bond between a gallery-keeper, the artists and the gallery’s visitors and customers is.
Of course it is business, but it is very much a business of love.
It is very much the enthusiastic and informal personality of Catalijn Ramakers and her aesthetic choices that has made this brilliant artistic party possible.
In fact this party of love and dedication has been going on already for many years and by all means i wish her a prolongation of many years to come.
