A very busy and pleasant opening of the first show by FotoFloor (= Floor Stoop and Mike van der Giessen) in the gallery. We already had lot's of interest (and sales!) up front so it wasn't a big surprise that so many people came to see these two great artists... Continue reading

Busy times at the Passenger terminal Amsterdam today. Everyone trying to get his booth ready for tomorrow, the festive opening night of Realisme11.
