The studio is available for a several year period to an artist working in the tradition of realistic, figurative painting. In 2015 this prize was awarded to Stijn Rietman www.stijnrietman.com.
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.
Studio De Gors is our ‘mid career’ studio and intended for use by artists who have earned their artistic merit and whose work represents a high standard in quality. The Studio was home to Emo Verkerk www.emoverkerk.nl and Ruud Spil www.ruudspil.nl during 2006-2012.
Other Laureates were:
- Afke Golsteijn www.idiots.nl
- Bert van Loo www.bertvanloo.nl
- Hans van Bentem www.hansvanbentem.nl
- Tamar Frank www.lightspace.org
The premises were restored in 2013-14.
