Over the years, Waddenland has attracted many artists to settle and live here. Some villages have even become known as artists’ villages. Almost all of these villages have one or more galleries or ateliers. All have special collections, including paintings, sculpture and jewellery.
Het Raadhuis Gallery
Het Raadhuis Gallery offers art in a unique location, in the immediate environment of the Lauwersmeer and the Wadden Coast. Het Raadhuis specialises in figurative art, in the form of painting, sculpture and ceramics. A fixed group of artists show their work in Het Raadhuis six times a year. This includes both recognised artists and young up-and-coming artists.
You will find Het Raadhuis Gallery located in a former local council building in Eenrum. This monumental building from 1930 in the Amsterdam School style no longer fulfils its original purpose, but since it remains serviceable it has acquired a new function. The building now accommodates five superb exhibition spaces and an impressive hall over two floors.
Atelierroute 99 (Studio Trail 99)
A Studio Trail is organised on the last Sunday of each month. This Studio Trail will take you on a tour of various participating Waddenland artists’ studios and allows you to view their work in the studio setting. For participating artists and a route map, take a look at www.route99.nl
