* Looking back at the Art Days 2011, November 2011, Oude Kerk (Old Church), Amsterdam

With approximately 300 exhibiting artists at seven different locations in the Netherlands, more than 9,000 visitors, a large number of sold works and a high appreciation of the exhibited art, the Art Days 2011 were a great success.


The election which is connected to the Art Days, proved to be highly valued.
The essence of the election is that visitors to the Regional Arts Days can indicate their appreciation of the exhibited artworks. Thus they determine, along with an expert jury, which artists have the opportunity to present themselves during the National Arts Days. At the National Art Days twenty most esteemed artists of any Regional Art Day may exhibit three of their works (a total of 140 artists).

With approximately 6,000 visitors the two National Art Days in the beautiful ‘Oude Kerk’ (Old Church) in Amsterdam, were the highlight of the Art Days 2011. The visitors gave the exhibited art on average an exceptionally high rating. Together with the appreciation recorded by the 20 jury members was that hearty pat and compliment for the exhibiting artists. 

The artist whose works exhibited at the National Art Days were most appreciative of the visitors and the jury, was the winner of the Art Days. The artists who came second and third, also received awards.

This is the final result of the Art Days 2011:
1.   Dominique Prins  (first prize winner)
