Call for participants:
PAPER ART EVENT AT DE MIDDELSTE MOLEN
14 & 15 SEPTEMBER
The deadline to apply is May 30, 2019.
On the Dutch National Open Monument Days, 14 & 15 September 2019, we are scheduling a Paper Art Event at the historical paper mill De Middelste Molen. On these two days the authentic paper mill is open free to the public and attracts many hundreds of visitors. They have been making paper since 1622, and it is a delight to see the mill in action on these days. All the old wooden cogwheels, long screen, belts and hollanders are churning, grinding, rolling and stomping.
We invite paper artists to come, make paper, collaborate, join forces, experiment and interact with the public under the auspicious vibes of the historical paper mill. Our aim is to generate a lively artistic climate. Paper artists interested in giving small demonstrations and interacting with the public or providing a hand- on activity may reserve a booth, free of charge, for both 14 & 15 September. Participants may exhibit small works, promote their business and sell paper related items on both days. We have enough booths for approximately 15 paper artists.
Three days prior to the Paper Art Event, on 11, 12 and 13 September, our studio next to the mill, is open for paper artists to come in, make some paper, gather, join forces, and prepare for the Paper Event. We can provide you with some materials and equipment. So, come join us…it is an informal get- together. It will be great pleasure to welcome you!
We would also like to note that the prestigious Paper Biennale at the CODA museum www.coda-apeldoorn.nl in Apeldoorn is still on from the 10th of June till 27 October. Just a 15-minute drive from the Middelste Molen. Nearby is also the Krȫller-Muller Museum www.kroller-mulller.nl which boasts second largest Van Gogh collection in the world. In the sculpture garden, you can ride White Bikes through the beautiful park.
If you are interested, please send us an e-mail with your name, address, website and a short description of what you would like to present at the Paper Event. You will receive an e-mail with more details and places to stay in the surrounding countryside.
Hope to see you in September!
