Dear art friends and relations,
After the Opo Yari exhibition in Januari, at Readytex Art Gallery the month of February is all about our Bigi Yari! This February 8th marks the 30th anniversary of our opening in 1993. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to celebrate this wonderful milestone with us at the opening of the group exhibition ECOLOGY – 30 years Readytex Art Gallery on Thursday, February 9 at 7:30 pm. In this special exhibition we take you along on a visual journey through three decades of visual art development at Readytex Art Gallery.
Responsible for the composition of the exhibition was a mixed curatorial team consisting of visual artist Rinaldo Klas, artist and curator Miguel Keerveld and art and culture consultant Aruna Mungra. Rinaldo Klas, who has been connected to the gallery right from the start, is also the honorary artist of this exhibition. As a guideline for the art to be presented at the exhibition, the curators first made a selection of Rinaldo’s works from each of the three decades of the gallery’s existence. Inspired by this selection, the team built a chronologically structured collection consisting of works of art by all of the artists affiliated with the gallery, arranged according to the interconnected themes: human/nature, spirituality and abstraction. This interconnectedness can also be found among the multiple stakeholders of the gallery: the artists, Readytex-team members, buyers, collectors and visitors. There is a continuous cross pollination and interaction, which also leads to art development and has indeed been doing so for three decades now: ECOLOGY – 30 years Readytex Art Gallery.
Please join us at this special anniversary exhibition, which is sure to evoke countless beautiful art memories. Readytex Art Gallery is grateful for your trusted patronage and support in any form, during these past three decades. We hope to keep providing you with beautiful Surinamese art for many more decades to come, whether it be for your home, work place or to add to your carefully built art collection.
You are welcome at the opening of ECOLOGY – 30 years Readytex Art Gallery on Thursday February 9, between 7:00 and 9:00 pm. After this you can visit the exhibition From Friday, February 10 until Saturday March 4, during the regular opening hours of the gallery from Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm and on Saturday from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm.
We look forward to your visit!
Team Readytex Art Gallery
