Galerie Posthuys is not a traditional gallery with classical works of art, but a meeting place where artists, visitors and buyers come together. Contemporary art is presented. Some artists take the landscape and nature as their starting point: beach, dunes, polders, forests, fish and birds. With other artists the starting point is less recognizable, but above all tangible: rhythm, handwriting, color and skin derived from nature. The gallery has four rooms, each with its own exhibition. Each exhibition can be seen "undisturbed", so that the specific atmosphere of the selection of works of art is best expressed. A selection of permanent artists forms the basis of the collection. They regularly exhibit new work and are always represented in the spacious stock attic. In addition, a dozen new artists are introduced every year. The gallery also has partnerships with other companies: for example, the gallery has been providing art in Texelsuites since 2006. The exhibition of works of art in Culinaire Verwennerij Bij Jef is also made by the gallery. Information about these works of art is available in the gallery. Some additional activities worth mentioning are the annual Haringnegendaagse (in June) and the open studio of Maurice Christo van Meijel – every first Sunday of the month during the summer period.
