Pieter Knorr is figurative artist. He was born in The Hague, but rooted for thirty years in the west of the province of Groningen. In Doezum he endless finds the inspiration. For him, no mountains, but the flat land and all that it gives: the fragility of life, nature, death, mystery. Friday, March 25 at Museum Nienoord Leek opens the exhibition "Visible Silence". This is his first museum retrospective exhibition with a wide selection of his oil paintings and drawings, mostly private collections. Sunday, March 27 AVRO TROS broadcasts in 'Kunstuur' at NPO 2 the documentary "Visible Silence" from filmmaker Goert Giltay. This will also be shown in the museum during the exhibition.

This time she examines photos of Judith Minks, Hans Masters and Rinkje Miedema. They jointly show for the first time their recent work. The memories of a chambermaid. The influence of light on the landscape around Harlingen. The world of growing children. Visual stories, rooted in personal experiences. The exhibition runs until May 16 in the lobby of WTC Expo in Leeuwarden.
