It’s the New Year – and there’s no better time to have a short break in Amsterdam – one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. The central canal belt has been designated World Heritage status and there’s no better place to stay in this area than right in the middle of The Nine Streets shopping district.
From 28 September to 15 November 2014, Shirdak Gallery will be hosting the exquisite leather crafted works of artist and designer Joyce van Heek.
For Joyce van Heek leather takes many forms that inspire both her artistic vision and her everyday interaction with handmade skins. Therefore, for more than 20 years Joyce van Heek has been working with leather to create artfully crafted objects – from clothing and other accessories such as bags and pillows, to large wall visual art works with a monumental character.
A week before the official opening, on Sunday September 21st, 12.00pm – 17.00pm, the artist Joyce van Heek will be present in Shirdak, to talk about her work and celebrate two decades of creative and successful entrepreneurship.
