Our primary goal is to seek and develop the next generation of artists by way of an exciting array of exhibitions, events and other promotional activities. Over the last 5 years we have seen emerging artists grow into successful names, most of them are now exhibiting at other renowned galleries, art institutions and art fairs.
Gallery Pouloeuff proudly works together with several partners. This way Pouloeuff artists are offered an even bigger platform to exhibit their works of art.
Some of our partnerships are:
• In 2015 the ' Best of Pouloeuff 2014' exhibition at Museum IJsselstein was organised. Former Pouloeuff exhibitors were chosen to show their work for the very first time in a museum.
• Since 2015 the design shop ZevenendZes has a parallel show exhibiting Pouloeuff artists in the famous artists’ town of Laren.
• During the Photo Festival Naarden, Gallery Pouloeuff is part of the Festival-OFF. Visitors are able to visit the exhibition specially set up during the festival period.
Over the last 5 years the gallery has championed new and interesting visual artists, irrespective of background and discipline.
Artists exhibit their work for free on the walls of one of the two gallery floors. When an artist sells a work of art they don’t have to pay a commission fee. Artists are only responsible for transporting their work to the gallery.
Unfortunately not everyone can exhibit their work at Gallery Pouloeuff, not only because the gallery offers limited exhibition space, but also because the gallery is geared toward young, talented graduates (or soon-to-be graduates) of renowned art schools in the Netherlands.
It’s these students that could benefit from a stepping-stone to launch an independent and successful career in the creative industries.
Very rarely Gallery Pouloeuff offers space to an established artist. Should you be interested in finding out more, please contact us.
To make Pouloeuff artists stand out and be noticed, the gallery’s promotional activities include sending out press releases, contacting local media, introducing artists to a network of established art galleries and curators, and promotional activities on several social media platforms.
An online newsletter is sent out regularly to keep people up-to-date on news, interesting facts, interviews and background information concerning artists and exhibitions.
During every exhibition people can vote online for their favourite work of art. The artist that receives the most votes, wins the 'Pouloeuff Public Award' and recieves a substantial financial encouragement to launch his or hers artistic career.
Every new exhibition starts with an opening day; press, family and friends can have first view of the works. Live music or live action painting could be the menu of the day.
Occasionally Gallery Pouloeuff organises lectures for those interested in the arts.
