Pieter Brueghel Lecture

On 18-11-2023 with Pencil & Brush is organizing another beautiful lecture, given by Ingrid Gaasterland. She says: In this new lecture I place the Brueghels in their time: the 16th and 17th centuries in the Southern Netherlands. A time of movement and innovation in many areas. And in the

work of the Brueghels everything seems to be literally in motion; an invitation to look and to keep looking. That is what we are going to do during this lecture!

It promises to be a great lecture!

Report on the big exhibition of January 14 & 15, 2023

On Saturday, January 14, 2023 at 2 PM, the annual exhibition was opened amid great interest by chairman Irma Rabelink. Unfortunately, during the years with Corona, a digital version had to suffice.

Immediately after the opening, artist Coen van Ham (http://www.coenvanham.com) gave a very inspiring and appealing introduction, in which he also involved a number of the numerous attendees in a pleasant way.

This beginning marked the start of an exhibition that was very busy on both days.

The exhibited works, which were arranged over 2 rooms, garnered admiration and appreciation from visitors. On display was a colorful and diverse set of works of art. In addition, it was established that the level of the works betrayed that the artists are also guided in their activities by the professional teachers that “Met Potlood en Penseel” has at its disposal.

Apparently inspired by what was on display, a number of registrations of new members and requests for further information in this regard could also be booked.

We can look back on a successful exhibition in all respects!
