Saturday 2 July the BA students of ArtEZ received their diplomas.
Aracelly Scheper received the VVAO prize and Art Gallery O-68 added the O-68 work prize to it.
About the work of Aracelly Scheper:
Minimal gestures, gentle movements and a subtle approach of the objects pictured. In the silent video works and installations of Aracelly there is a sensible absence of something or someone.
Driven by the absence of her Colombian background she collects objects that once belonged to her Dutch family.
“In my video’s they become part of the desire to understand my situation, my history and foremost my identity.”

O-68 Prize for Dutch/German Visual Artists
Art Gallery O-68 installed a new prize, the ‘O-68 Prize for Dutch/German Visual Artists’. The prize is for artists who have been born or have studied or are living or working in the border provinces of the Netherlands to Germany, and the ‘Kreisbezirk Dusseldorf’ of Germany. It is meant for artists between 7 and 14 years after their last diploma, which appears to be a critical, crucial, time, as it is for scientists and probably many professions including gallerists. We had 18 applications and a professional jury advises us. These are Marcel Doorduin Professor of fine art, ArtEZ, Arnhem, Klaus Ebbers, Galerie Ebbers, Kranenburg, Germany, and Coen Vernooij, established visual artist, Nijmegen. The applicants, were asked to send in images of their work and a brief description of how they are going to spend the €10.000 of the prize. The jury committee came to the following selection, in alphabetical order: Mariska de Groot, http://mariskadegroot.com/, Heidi Linck, http://heidilinck.nl/, and Casper Verborg: http://www.casperverborg.nl/. These 3 artists will have an exhibition in Art Gallery O-68 from 2 November up to 14 December. During the opening reception on 2 November from 3-5 pm, the winner will be announced. Welcome. RSVP.
From collections in Centre Pompidou, Paris, and MoMa, New York, top pieces came to Rotterdam from 3 pioneers of modern art: Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), Medardo Rosso (1858-1928) and Man Ray (1890-1976). A ‘MUST SEE’.
From 22 December 2013 to17 januari 2014 Art Gallery O-68 becomes a 19th century French ‘Salon’ with works in stock.
22 December: Christmas reception, 15-17 h.
Art Gallery O-68 has its second birthday now. To celebrate this we organize a French SALON with works of artists who had exhibitions in these two years:
Dovrat Amsily-Barak, Elies Auer, Corneille, Beverly Brodsky, Salvador Dali, Arlene Diehl, Deborah Esses, Annette Haeberling, Jacob Kerssemakers, July Leesberg, Mar, Gillian Meijer, Edosa Ogiuo, Zinno Orara, Sam Ovraiti, Marena Seeling, Paul Veshev en originele Aboriginal Art uit Australie.
I am looking forward to the new exhibition in September:
The works of living artists from Nigeria in my gallery radiate a spirit that reflects loyalty to a multilevel heritage. The pieces reveal a deeply-rooted strain between aspects of this legacy, stirring in the viewer a sense of comprehension of man in this time on this planet.
