As reported by the Emmer Courant, a unique exhibition has just opened at the Aelder Meent in Aalden (near Coevorden). Called ‘Droomlicht’ (‘Dreamlight’), the exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the painter Bianche Verboom, and the photographer Hilda Lahuis.
Visitors are welcome at the Aelder Meent (Paardelandsdrift 11) on Tuesday and Friday afternoons between 14:00 and 17:00, and on Saturday afternoons between 14:00 and 16:00- when both artists will be present.
Bianche Verboom says: “I always love to draw, and during the diverse courses I have followed in my life, I have learned all about different styles of drawing… my current style finds its roots in my fascination with fantasy and manga, whilst my inspiration has been drawn from my great love for mother nature, and all of her beautiful subjects.”
Lahuis says that the photographs she has selected for ‘Dreamlight’ are local to Aalden: “I have taken them in the Mepper Hooilanden, de Palms, in aalden, and at the Mantingerzand. A number of these photos were exhibited at the Drents Museum’s ‘Barbizon van het Noorden’ exhibition, too!”.
