artists say good bye to nine van caldenborgh

just after art amsterdam ’09, in between two exhibitions, at the time the space of gallery 9 was empty, the artists connected to gallery 9 said good bye to nine van caldenborgh. to nine it appeared to be a big surprise. to give expression to their gratitude of all the years of her dedication they offered nine works of them. with all these works we made a special mini exhibition just for her. nine also received an album specially composed for her with pictures of the artists in their studio.
