Since her establishment in 1993
The idea for the Open House Exhibition was therefore born out of the need to give art lovers the opportunity, during a festive nighttime occasion, to enjoy a great and varied collection of art; art which attests to the creativity and skill of our Surinamese artists and which gives expression to our rich and varied cultural backgrounds.
This exhibition presents visitors with a choice selection out of a dynamic collection consisting of paintings on canvas and paper, hand painted pottery, ceramics and sculptures by famous, experienced and newly upcoming, talented artists. Interesting are also the paintings by some recently joined foreign artists, who through their art express their own unique relationship with our country. Altogether this is a fascinating selection done in many different styles and executed with creative use of color and material.
With this exhibition the Gallery aims to increase the publics’ awareness of the dynamics and growth within the present day art industry in our own country.
Art-lovers worldwide now have access to up to date information about our gallery, the artists and to the complete art collection, with the option to buy if they so desire. All this 24 hours long, every day! Because of this our Gallery is never closed to you!!
