The exhibition, where all works are for sale, will take place in the Witte Kerk from Saturday

Frisian art-lovers are in for a treat at the ART Super exhibition, the yearly sale and exhibition for around 60 up-and-coming artists from the Northern Netherlands
The yearly art fair and exhibition got off to a great start at the opening, which was hosted by Johannes Kramer, member of the Gedeputeerde Staten for Friesland (FNP). Aside from Kramer, the opening also saw tens of artists, family, friends; and volunteers attend.
Organisers were initially worried that the entrance to the church would be blocked by tractors, however luckily the opening event went off without a hitch.
Kramer himself has pushed for the church to be used as an exhibition space, and he commented that utilising such spaces for events like ART Super is good for the liveability of smaller villages. This idea seems to have been borne out by the huge number of volunteers getting involved in the exhibition.
The Deputy opened the exhibition by signing a plate, dedicated to ART Super, which was followed by a party.
After two days, more than 50 pieces of art had been bought, and around 300 visitors had been recorded. ART Super is available to see in the Witte Kerk in Hemrik, Friesland, until 8 December, on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays from 13:00-17:00. Entry is free, more information is available on the exhibition’s website.
