Momenteel ben ik met de laatste voorbereidingen bezig voor mijn eerste expositie in mijn werk- en woonplaats Doesburg. Vorig jaar kreeg ik naar aanleiding van mijn deelname aan de expositie Lang leve Rembrandt in het Rijksmuseum een uitnodiging van Stichting De Raadskelder om in het hart van Doesburg te exposeren. De expositie genaamd ‘Natural reflections’ vindt plaats tegen het decor van de prachtige middeleeuwse binnenstad in de sfeervolle Raadskelder van het stadhuis. Ik nodig u hierbij van harte uit om bij de opening aanwezig te zijn. In verband met catering verneem ik graag of bij de opening aanwezig zult zijn. De opening is zondag 22 maart om 13.30 uur in de hal van het Gemeentehuis, Roggestaat 2, Doesburg.

Open altelier

Open atelier on 2 and 3 November 2019

On Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November 2019, artist Wencke Vinks will open the doors of her studio to the public for the first time. Wencke exhibited this summer in the Rijksmuseum as a finalist of the Lang Leve Rembrandt competition where she was selected from a pre-selection of no less than 8.390 artists. Her work “The Reading Woman” is now back in Doesburg and will be shown in her studio, among other paintings. For the first time she will exhibit her art in Doesburg.

Wencke Vinks studied at the Design Academy in Eindhoven in the 1990s, after which she worked as Art Director for many years. Since 2015, Wencke has been working full-time as a painter. She says about her work: “My passion lies primarily in painting a model in relation to the natural environment”. To further explore her painting techniques, she became apprenticed to renowned painters, including Sam Drukker, Jeremy Lipking (USA) and Svetlana Tartakovska.

In addition to her winning painting The Reading Woman, a large part of her paintings and drawings can be seen and are for sale. There are also beautiful paintings for sale that she made during her travels to Nepal, China, Italy and Switzerland.

We hope to see you!

Ulrich Suberg

4-days workshop with Ulrich Suberg

My start in 2019 was very good and intensive. It was an instructive week in Haren at “Onderneming op Kunstgebied”. 4 days long I draw a live nude model in the morning and a live model for portrait painting in the afternoon. Because of the long observation period, I had the opportunity to work on the details during the paint sessions. And painting a live nude model is for me an exotic step, that tastes like more. Artiest or note, I recommend everybody to step out of their comfort zone and dive into the deep. Works very refreshing in many ways!
