GALLERY TOUR | ‘Abstract Across Disciplines’ with Sophie Schade

vrijdag 2 juni 2023
→ Galerie Fons Welters
Bloemstraat 140
1016 LJ Amsterdam
Free admission

Come and explore the vibrant contemporary art scene in Amsterdam during the Amsterdam Art Week!

Our newest Amsterdam Art ambassador, Sophie Schade, invites you to join her on a special Gallery Preview tour, where she will personally guide you through four galleries that she handpicked. These galleries offer a diverse range of artists, from Jan Robert Leegte and André Stempfel to Teresiña Talarico and Jennifer Tee.

Sophie Schade works as a strategist in the creative industry. Her bright apartment in Amsterdam has been carefully decorated with modern and contemporary art and design. She prefers her works to be outspoken, abstract and very graphic and mainly collects photography — or works that use photography as a medium. This route will take you along galleries where abstract art is exhibited across disciplines, using multi-media: from tangible paintings and sculptures to immersive audio works and virtual reality. Expect all senses to be treated!

During this Gallery Tour, you will walk through the heart of the city and experience the art and culture that Amsterdam has to offer. The tour will start at 12:00 at Galerie Fons Welters (Bloemstraat 140) and we kindly ask that you arrive 5 minutes early at the first location so that we can enter together as a group.

12.00 start – Galerie Fons Welters (Bloemstraat 140)

We continue the tour to The Merchant House (Herengracht 254) – Slewe Gallery (Kerkstraat 105-A) – Upstream Gallery (Kloveniersburgwal 95) (with presence of Jan Robert Leegte for an artist talk)

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to explore Amsterdam’s thriving contemporary art scene and discover the latest works of some of the most exciting artists of our time. Join Sophie for an unforgettable experience during Amsterdam Art Week. We can’t wait to see you there!

Please note: for this tour, you will need a bicycle or other means of transport that will allow you to easily cover the distances between the galleries.
