6 Frisian illustrators
of Frisian youth and picture books


November 5 to January 23, 2022


The many Frisian picture books that are published every year show that the art of illustration in the province of Fryslân is of a high standard. The work of six talented illustrators is now in the spotlight in Afslag BLV.

The exhibition 6 Frisian illustrators shows a variety of work by the participating artists, ranging from sketches, watercolors, posters and independent drawings. The illustrators are: Berber van den Brink, Douwe Dijkstra, Edith Stultiens, Mirjam van Houten, Nina Peckelsen and Paul van Dijk.

The exhibition was created in close collaboration between Museum Belvédère and the Afûk, the institution in Friesland that is actively committed to the Frisian language and culture. The exhibiting artists are all involved in picture books published by the Afûk.

Afslag BLV focuses to a large extent on the work of young artists. The activities in Afslag BLV are made possible thanks to the Klaas Dijkstra Fund Foundation and the Municipality of Heerenveen.

Afslag BLV is an initiative of Museum Belvédère in collaboration with the Municipality of Heerenveen, Museum Heerenveen and Stichting De Heerenveense School.
