The philosophy of Gallery Bell’Arte reads as a variety of fascination, always looking for local, national and international artists who work mainly figurative and abstract. For owner Doret Huibers is a sculpture a contemporary form of expression. The choice of artists, many of whom have been working since 1993 with Doret, guarantees art with inspiration.
The exhibiting artists include: Chris Tap, Joris Gaymans, Arvid, Carlos Mata, Emile Cornelis, Albert Niemeyer, Gerti Bierenbroodspot, Luigi Galligani, Pépé Grégoire, Jan Desmarets, Peter Harskamp, Eddy Roos, Arthur Spronken, Francesca Zijlstra, Fioen Blaisse and Jan Verschoor.
