LDVC, an Orlando-based Art Concierge Company, is sponsoring and curating an extraordinary showcase of well-known Dutch artists at the Art Gallery at Mills Park located at 1650 North Mills Avenue, Orlando FL, on January 27th, 2017. The opening reception will begin at 6:30PM and is open to the public. Admission is free and the Dutch art works will continue to be available for viewing at the gallery during normal business hours until March 5th, 2017. The show is made possible through a collaborative relationship LDVC has secured with one of the largest galleries in Europe and marks the beginning of an exclusive U. S. tour in Orlando, Florida.
This timely exhibit follows on the heels of a reportedly successful Art Basel Miami 2016, where several Dutch artists were seen in the Wynwood arts district, the galleries represented at SCOPE, and at Bridge – the new Dutch Pavilion. During a period of economic and political uncertainty for most art collectors and aficionados, Dutch art is being exhibited at an unprecedented rate, coupled with a rise in “must-see” art installations in the Netherlands. The pragmatic and direct approach of Dutch art and culture seems to appeal to a wide audience and speaks to the abstract, with pared-down aesthetics centered in basic visual elements such as geometric forms and primary colors. The creators in the LDVC exhibit envision their art to be a universal visual language that is appropriate to the modern era and the fluid movement of so many cultures across borders.
It is a search for hopefulness and contentment that led the LDVC team to procure the talented and diverse collective of respected male and female Dutch artists. Of all the industrialized nations, the Netherlands continues to top the list as having the most content children due to the celebration of choice and individualism, allowing for greater creative expression and empowerment as they become adults. Perhaps it is the relaxed attitude towards alcohol, drugs, and sex that creates an environment absent the constraints of guilt and shame that plague so many. Whatever the reasons, hopefulness is clearly felt throughout the artworks and art medium, reflected in bold colors as well as zen-like white space, including patterns and reflections of everyday life experiences. The LDVC Dutch art show embodies optimism, efficiency and positive energy that can be found in one of the most progressive yet smaller countries in the world.
The Dutch artist lineup includes Clemens Briels, Jan van Lokhorst, Judith Braun, Laurien Renckens, Marianne Y. Naerebout, and Erik Langkjaer.
