KETELEER GALLERY takes over the representation of Deweer Gallery artists.
KETELEER GALLERY is very honoured to announce taking over the representation of the Deweer Gallery’s artists. For the official introduction of this new development we proudly present Looking Forward : a group show of drawings by a selection of 15 artists from the new KETELEER GALLERY portfolio, as well as works by Bjarne Melgaard. The exhibition can be considered a little preview of the exciting and daring new program.
KETELEER GALLERY opened its doors in 2012 at the Leopoldstraat, Antwerp, Belgium. The following 7 years it organically evolved into a family driven business in which a dynamic and open contact with the local and international artworld became its core focus while honoring Belgium’s rich art history. During those years our expanding artist portfolio and subsequent collectors got us into contact with Deweer Gallery, which quickly turned into a close bond of trust.
In September 2019, KETELEER GALLERY moved to a new space at the Pourbusstraat 3-5, in the South of Antwerp. A well-known building where NICC and many other galleries created a now famous history, becomes a new potent haven for a new collaboration with Deweer Gallery, set to close its doors by the end of 2019. The gallery will be turned into “Deweer Gallery Estate”, consisting of the entire collection since 1979. From now on KETELEER GALLERY will take on the main representation of all of Deweer’s active artists as well as the new estate. Out of a sincere admiration and respect for Deweer’s family, history and name in both Belgium and abroad, all this will operate as a close partnership with Bart & Gerald Deweer, who will stay active as key liaisons and advisors, honoring the close ties that were built with artists and collectors over the years. Our aim is to strengthen and broaden the existing ties, with an open mind, to open up new possibilities while ensuring the continuation of the important positions of artists that were represented by Deweer Gallery in Belgium.
