Opening by Ans Markus

Enjoy a glass of bubbly and listen to the live music at the beautiful and industrial Gashouder. Ans Markus performs the opening at 18.00 o’clock.

Markus' clothing style makes her an eye-catching appearance. She is considered to be a society painter and therefore frequently appears in the Dutch press. In addition to being a society painter, she is also the painter of ordinary people. She made several sculptures in copper and wrote two booklets about her mother: The pain of old and It's good that way.

Markus was proclaimed artist of the year in 2009.

For some years now, Ans Markus has also been making sculptures in bronze and ceramics.
