Galerie Marzee is excited to announce that it will be part of Appèl Galeries once again this year. Taking place from 12-27 September at the Werkwarenhuis in Den Bosch, Appèl Galeries is a collaboration between galleries from the south of the Netherlands.
In December 2019, artist Dorothea Prühl was honoured with the Art Prize of the State of Saxony-Anhalt for her life’s work.
Ornament and Sculpture, a new book chronicling the life and work of Dorothea Prühl, has been published in July 2020.

Galerie Marzee is very pleased to introduce renowned New Zealand jeweller Lisa Walker.
Considered one of the most influential contemporary jewellery artists, her work is driven by the ‘search for an aesthetic that we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognise.
We are delighted to announce that Junwon Jung has won the Friedrich Becker Prize 2020. Junwon was awarded the prize for the extraordinary technical refinement of his Boxes brooches.
The prize has been awarded by the Association for Goldsmiths’ Art in commemoration of goldsmith Friedrich Becker
Annamaria Leiste considers these hat-shaped brooches as protectors of the heart. Interwoven with perishable materials such as vegetable fibres and linen, the silver interior is revealed only when the fibres start to decay and wear away.
Known for her often brightly coloured work, Fragmentology is Karola Torkos’ study of surviving fragments – colourful scraps of plastic, metals and enamel combined to create a series of beautiful, lively necklaces.
Repetition and difference, Piet Dieleman’s new work explores these two concepts. Based on a continuous landscape, the repetition of forms in his paintings suggest a continuation from one canvas to another – the edge of the painting is only a physical condition from which the contents would like to escape.
Annelies Planteijdt says of her new series of work, ‘everything is fluid’. Nothing in life is fixed and things are constantly shifting, a pertinent theme in this time of crisis.
Our congratulations to Carla Nuis, one of the three recipients of this year’s Herbert Hofmann Prize.
Carla was awarded the prize for her Furl5 gold ring which, at first glance, appears solid and heavy. Formed of wafer-thin, welded gold sheet, the ring is, in fact, hollow and fragile, easily deformed by wearing.
All events at the IHM have been cancelled due to the spread of coronavirus/Covid-19 and the accompanying urgent recommendation of the crisis management team of the Bavarian State Government.
