The 7th edition of Kunstbeurs Heemstede will be set up along the same lines as former editions:  it is organised by participating artists, the quality is high, and the atmosphere will be as vibrant and cordial as we have come to expect.

The Art Fair Heemstede began in 2012 on the initiative of a few artists from Heemstede. The first edition was an instant success. The fair is unique in providing direct, personal contact between the artists and the public, without the intervention of galleries or mediators.

As an art fair, Kunstbeurs Heemstede aims to continue to grow and develop. To maintain the quality and diversity of the artworks on show, a strong selection of artists and work is indispensable. With that in mind, an external balloting committee has selected more than 50 artists in a variety of disciplines: Visual Art and Drawing, Sculpture, Photography, Ceramics, Goldsmithery, Glassblowing, Graphic Art, Assemblage, Mixed Media and Installation.

This 7th edition of Kunstbeurs Heemstede hosts an art fair within an art fair with the addition of the Ceramics Collectors’ Fair (Keramiekverzamelbeurs) offering ceramic art from the 20th and 21st centuries. In the recent past, this collectors’ fair was organised at Keramikos in Haarlem.

During the fair, there will be a scavenger hunt for the children, and musicians and poets from Heemstede and Haarlem will be invited to perform. 
Just like other years, a visit to Kunstbeurs Heemstede promises to be a fascinating and yet playful adventure for the whole family!

This Art Fair is unique, because it is organised by professional working artists.
7 jewellery artists participate, Birgit Laken, Dominique Steinmeijer, Francisca Henneman, Iris Nijenhuis, Jeanet Gem, Koen Jacobs and Rosita van Wingerden.
