At the Eiland Galerij in the north of Texel, in the Eierland polder, you can get acquainted with the work of the artist couple Niek Welboren and Kerstin Edelmann. The Island Gallery The coastal landscape is a source of inspiration for both artists. They translate water, clouds, wind and currents in their own way into paint or clay. In the Eiland Galerij they present their drawings, paintings and ceramic objects in four atmospheric rooms and an organically designed sculpture garden. A visit to the Eiland Galerij, the longest existing exhibition space for art on Texel, is a surprising experience! In addition to the presentation of island art, the school and polder history is honored in the monumental building with a fascinating collection in the Historical Lokaal. The combination of: the art made on the spot, the meeting with the makers in their own designed "Art Island in the polder", the special bond with Easter Island, the beautiful history of the building and the soothing sculpture garden, can certainly be called unique. the artists Niek Welboren incorporates his sketches and outdoor studies into small works on paper or paintings of a larger size. Space and movement are important features of his island impressions. Kerstin Edelmann translates the shapes, colors and structures of the coastline into ceramic objects for indoor and outdoor use. The spiral, as a symbol of life, is the blue thread in her work.
