#Art_In_Context – showcase and Masterclass for art and interior lovers
A project which presents five female artists from Breda in eye-catching interior context
From 2nd to 4th of March and very close to the international women’s days, a team of artists is making a display of 10 original artworks in the heart of Breda, at Brandpunt space on Reigerstraat 16. The idea behind the project is to raise once again the topic of the unbreakable connection between art and interior design.
The Artists & the Showcase
The project is runned by two freelance professionals and five female artists, all working and living in Breda and the region of North Brabant. Femke Baten who is interior designer is with sleeves up to prepare the best settings for the specially selected art works and Petya Chalakova as an art curator is managing the process of the art display. The five presented artists are Melanie Drent, Evi Hogervorst, Hanneke de Leeuw, Daphne Schrijver, Liesbeth Godrie.

“They are all very different in their art impression and at the same time they compliment each other in a lovely manner, in this project. We are very lucky we could attract such a diverse group of artists, so that there is a lot to be seen by the visitors.” says the team behind this project.
To share this luck with the public, the organisers have planned series of Artists Talks at the spot where for 30 minutes everyone who are interested can meet in person and talk with the artists on various topics such as “How is made a recycled pottery”, “What is the secret behind a painting made with oil paint”, “How the textile can be the perfect tool to create an art piece” and more.
In addition to the open display which everyone can visit and explorer, #Art_in_Context is also giving the public the opportunity to participate in a completely free of charge Masterclass on the topic of Interior design and how to display art in your own environment. There are some very hot topics which will be covered during this two and half hours interactive session such as light and colour pallets, framing, sizes and more. But you should be fast to sign for you as the sites at the spot are limited to 15 and the rules is “first call, first served”. The good news is that the organizers are also promising an online option for participation, which is also holding some limitation of the interactive experience. So, if you plan to be at Breda centre on 4th of March, between 11h and 13h, better reserve your free spot for the live session already today or sign up for the online version. The event is open for everyone who are interested in the topic of the cross section between interior design and art, and also for those who are just looking to explore and tackle the topic, to see how small decisions such as black or white framing can actually completely change the big picture.
“We have many other art and environment ideas which we would love to present to the public, so that pilot project will show us the direction and through the feedback from the visitors which we hope will be alot, we would know our next priority on the topic. So please, come to Brandpunt from 2 to 6th of March and let’s open the conversation about the convergence between art and the interior” – appeals to the team.
The project #Art_in_Context won’t be possible without the kind financial support from the Subsidie Cultuure from Gemeente Breda and all other partners.
