'Stories in the Landscape'

This event has already taken place

The theme The landscape is an old theme, what can be new about it? There is no landscape in Friesland that has not yet been touched, not marked by human interference. Yet there is a longing back to nature. There are people who enjoy the comfortable life in our contemporary landscape, but there are also people who suffer from landscape pain.

There are many angles to "landscape".
It can be a reflection of reality, or a reflection or illusion, but also a concept or model of an idea, an abstraction.
Stories are as old as humanity. Stories can be told in many ways: two, three-dimensional, with paint and brush, hammer and nail, in text and image, digitally presented with sound and many variations on it. Stories can be understood both literally and figuratively. It's about the experience.
Because dear artists, now that nature has been defeated and backslid, we are dependent on each other to give our world meaning with new stories. Thus, 'stories in the landscape' is a theme that offers new possibilities for artists from all visual disciplines.

The project in a nutshell The project Stories in the landscape provides a platform for visual artists in Friesland and gives their work a boost.
Five Masters in the arts and two scientists inspire participants to further develop their talents and their artistry.
Every amateur and professional artist of 16 years or older can participate. The only condition is that you live or are born in Friesland. The Masters have earned their spurs in and outside the Netherlands: Christiaan Kuitwaard - drawing / painting, Tjibbe Hooghiemstra - mixed techniques, Tryntsje Nauta - photography, Anne Feddema - painting / poetry, Gerrit Terpstra - spatial work.
The scientists are: Bert Looper, historian, director of Tresoar and Cees Buisman, professor of biological recycling technology, director of Wetsus. The participants provide one, two or three works for the starting exhibition in the CAV building in Oldeberkoop. The work of the Masters is also exhibited here.
Afterwards, fifteen talented participants will be eligible for a series of Masterclasses. The jury of Meesters chooses fourteen, the public chooses the fifteenth.
The master classes take place in the winter months. The work that arises during this period will be shown in the spring of 2019 in a follow-up exhibition.
This work will also receive an assessment. Two artists will be chosen who will have their own place in the Open Stal 2019 art route and the other thirteen group locations.
