(22-10-2016, 15 hours).
A report with pictures by Greta Verduin, Imago van Almere, 25-10-2016.
It is not mentioned in her article, but with the purchase of my works displayed (see below) during this exhibition, 5% of the purchase price goes to the “Tjommie Foundation”.
October 22, 2016, in Lelystad opened an Art Expo of about 25 artists. (To see up and until November 6, 2016 in Golf Event Center). An Initiative of ART-4You. Varied work from paintings to sculptures, photography, particularly realistic but also abstract works. The location on the 1st floor is sublime: beautiful light and great views!
At this expo a “Good Cause” was linked: “Tjommie Foundation”, a local project to help children in the South African townships with a portion of the sales of artwork. One of the participating artists, and also one of the organizers, Adler Warmer, presented one of his works available for auction!
The official opening was performed by the 3rd Secretary of the South African Embassy in The Hague, cultural attaché Lindsay Louis, video on YouTube> https://youtu.be/OADK2CiiSEw
Then some information was given about “Tommy” by Sonia Jenning, board member, and the painting came “under the hammer”. Finally this brought 550 euros in the drawer for the project, video on YouTube> https://youtu.be/ynwVGyl8RDs.
Finally, they concluded with a wine tasting of natural South African wines and some finger food. The exhibition can be seen up and until November 6, 2016 – Further information on www.art-4you.nl
