The Dorpskerk Huizum is open again this year for 'Tsjerkepaad'. There is also an interesting exhibition.
As a visitor to our old - but very beautiful - church you are most welcome on the stated Saturday afternoons during the indicated period.
This summer, the Leeuwarden visual artist David van Kampen is exhibiting in the Dorpskerk. The opening of the exhibition will take place - simultaneously with the start of 'Tsjerkepaad 2022' - on 2 July 2022.
David van Kampen was born in Leeuwarden. At the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam he followed training as a sculptor and painter.
In Leeuwarden we know from him the image of the hands clapping livestock farmers. This statue originally stood on the Lange Markstraat, but it will soon be placed at the Prins Hendrikbrug.
He became no less famous with the sculpture De Tuinder near the Huizumer bridge. The sculptor can be found in many of his paintings. Think, for example, of the paintings he made of the Wadden, all with relief.
These are the paintings with which he became widely known. But there are others.
Touched by all the misery in Central Europe in the 1990s, he made works that did not become known. They have never even been exhibited. But now that the same misery is unfortunately occurring, it is time to exhibit the works after all.
The title 'Onderweg naar Arcadia' (On the way to Arcadia) speaks for itself. Impressive images of refugees.
The exhibition 'Onderweg naar Arcadia' (On the way to Arcardia) is made possible in part by FGD Assurantiën.
Entrance is free. Everyone is welcome.
Free parking is possible in the carpark opposite Intratuin (south side of Tijnjedijk).
