Art on Paper Amsterdam
FROM CLASSICAL TO CONTEMPORARY
At Art on Paper Amsterdam, selected galleries and artdealers concentrate on work on or made with paper. The fair takes place in the industrial-monumental Gashouder and Transformator at Westergas.
Work on or made with paper, whether it be pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, gouache or collage, often shows the artist in the most spontaneous and artistically free moment. The directness that is connected with this medium brings artist and viewer closer together. In their intimacy and vulnerability, works on or made with paper thrive well with the exclusive attention they receive at a specialized art fair.
Not only does work on or made with paper have a special character from an artistic point of view, it is often accessible and attractive in terms of format and price. Beginning art lovers might be doing one of their first art purchases here.

The Netherlands Association of Corporate Art Collections (Vereniging Bedrijfscollecties Nederland, VBCN) will organize the impressive Central Exhibition in 2024, just as the Chabot Museum did in 2023 with Armando’s private art collection. The VBCN is a non-profit network for Dutch companies and (semi) public institutions with an art collection policy. The best works on paper from the collections of more than 10 members are shown in the Gashouder.
