Events

Netherlands: Hout
‘Hout’ is een tentoonstelling over het materiaal hout, en het landschap waar het vandaan komt: het bos. Veel van de kwaliteiten die hout worden toegedicht – natuurlijk, warm, puur – zijn ontleend aan het bos. Het bos als toevluchtsoord, als bron van leven, en als vrijplaats voor experiment is al eeuwenlang een inspiratiebron voor architecten, ontwerpers en kunstenaars. Maar het bos is ook een kunstmatig landschap. Een door de markt gedreven productiemachine die op gespannen voet staat met elke vorm van romantiek.
Netherlands: Fototentoonstelling Stoomzagerij
Foto's en films over Stoomhoutzagerij Nahuis, deze expositie MAG u niet missen! In samenwerking met de Stichting Stoomhoutzagerij Nahuis Groenlo wordt in de Stadsboerderij Grolle een expositie gehouden over de stoomhoutzagerij. Ruim tweehonderd foto's brengen de geschiedenis van Stoomhoutzagerij Nahuis in beeld, van het oorspronkelijke bedrijf tot en met het huidige museum. De expositie begint op 8 juli a.s. en loopt tot eind augustus. De foto's laten zien hoe Stoomhoutzagerij Nahuis vroeger een bedrijf was en hoe het uiteindelijk een museum is geworden. In de vitrinekasten vindt u nog originele werktuigen en gereedschappen, zoals die vroeger in de stoomhoutzagerij werden gebruikt. Via de beeldschermen in de Stadsboerderij kunt u historisch filmmateriaal zien.
