A few weeks ago curator Eefje Zalm went with maternity leave.
Martijntje is the newest member of the gallery and during her leave she will help with everything in the gallery, collection and estate related things.
Who is Martijntje?
Martijntje Poot (1990) studied Lifestyle& Design at the Willem de Kooning art Academy and started her own company in Candy Floss art: Studio Martijntje Cornelia.
She worked at diverse galleries for example Showroom MAMA in Rotterdam. Created customized guided tours for o.a. KunstVlaai Amsterdam and in addition she was active as coach fort he AllGirlsStreetArtCollective, a talented group of young people.
Martijntje: “10 years ago I became familiar with the gallery through my internship at artist Madeleine Berkhemer. The beautiful installation ‘Tuin der lusten I’ at the stable is her work. During that time I got a really good impression of the gallery. To work for Bergarde Galleries makes this even more special. Not from artist’s perspective, but also from within the gallery now.
It is a very inspirational gallery with a beautiful estate. The private collection is definitely worth the visit, I can recommend booking a guided tour. Hope to welcome you all soon in this art paradise.”
