HISTORY AND ARTISTS
In 2005 the Dooyewaard Foundation purchased their second studio with separate living quarters at the Angerechtsweg 5a. This is how de Gors (“Gors” is a small singing bird), became a studio and home after having served as a forge, a bicycle shop and a weaving and spinning mill in the past. The premises were restored in 2005-2006.
Studio De Gors is one of our ‘mid career’ studios and intended for use by artists who have earned their artistic merit and whose work represents a high standard in quality.
