TNF December 5th 2019: 'Special Art Gifts'
(5 Dec 2019 - 28 Dec 2019)

'Give art to those close to your heart'


It’s hard to believe, but 2019 is almost nearing its end. For Readytex Art Gallery, it has been a year filled with interesting Thursday Night Features (TNF’s), grand exhibitions, and many other important art moments and opportunities for the artists affiliated with the gallery. In this final month of the year we will be closing our annual program of activities with a Special Art Gifts TNF on Thursday December 5th. Just like in previous years, Readytex Art Gallery once again offers you a great alternative for many of your Christmas shopping challenges. On this wonderful Thursday evening, beyond the regular opening hours of the busy city center, you will have the opportunity to choose unique and artistic Christmas presents for almost everyone on your list. 

So, for this Special Art Gifts TNF and for the rest of the month December, the entire ground floor of Readytex Art Gallery will be dedicated to unique and affordable works of art that make perfect Christmas gifts. In addition to a collection of small paintings and sculptures, the collection will include hand-painted glasses, wooden utensils with artful designs, and many other unique gift items all made by our talented visual artists. And for those interested in gifting larger works of art, the other floors and spaces of the gallery are filled, as always, with an extensive and diverse collection of fine art.

You are invited to join us for a pleasant, art-filled evening in which you can solve all your holiday shopping dilemmas, while also enjoying an excellent cup of KW coffee brewed on the spot by our professional Barista from Sweetie Coffee Suriname.

The special gift edition TNF at Readytex Art Gallery on December 5th will be open from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Items purchased on this evening can be taken home right away. The special art gifts display of this TNF will remain in the gallery for the entire month of December.

Dhiradj Ramsamoedj
In the past paintings by Dhiradj Ramsamoedj were mostly oils on canvas on which the paint was applied with a pallet knife. Now he paints mostly with a brush which results in a smooth, flat finish. The style has become less realistic and the people in his recent work have a completely different appearance.

Leonnie van Eert

The artist finds her inspiration in natural forms, with nature close to home, and in the use of symbols from different cultures. Uses and forms from the Indigenous, Maroon and Javanese culture in Suriname are close to the artist who also looks across Africa, Columbia and Peru. An artwork usually comes from a sketch. The end result does not have to be the same as the sketch shows.

It is special to make the world from different perspectives. A blend of cultures that reflects the world from both the past and the present from all over the world. It is the cultural heritage we have received from our ancestors and must cherish. That's what I'm trying to express with my work.
