As Texel is a veritable paradise for artists, there are a considerable number of art galleries on the island. However, besides Texel art, works by non-Texel artists can be admired and bought. A visit to a gallery and perhaps the purchase of a work of art will add more depth to your stay here.
All sorts of art are on view in the galleries of Texel; you can see paintings, drawings and sculptures. Most visitors will notice that nature plays a central part in many of the works by these artists. Below is a list of the famous galleries on Texel.
Art gallery Galerie Posthuys Texel in the seaside resort of De Koog introduces visitors to artists who base their work on natural elements. Some artists express it tangibly, with the rhythm, colour and "skin" derived from nature. The exacting selection of artists ensures an exciting collection.
