Ready for a new entry in ABC’s Favorite Reads of 2012 series? There will be new titles, old titles, magazines, Dutch books, games, fiction, non fiction, anything and everything we read and liked in 2012. We are as diverse as our individual choices and that is what makes ABC unique!
Part II features Jesse, Nyjolene and Mark. Jesse is the Art and Fashion buyer in Amsterdam (as well as the designer of the annual Thanksgiving vouchers!). Nyjolene is The Hague’s artist-in-residence and the buyer for the New Age, Fashion/Beauty, Childcare and NY Times Bestsellers sections. Mark is Amsterdam’s Warehouse Chief.
We would love to hear about your favorite reads of 2012, too. Please mail email@example.com with your choices and a picture of yourself (optional). We will post your list at the beginning of the new year and send you an ABC Gift Certificate (so don’t forget to include your home address with your list!).
In December ABC will stage for two very special art exhibitions, both of them very much connected to us.
That’s right, we have a world premiere! Nyjolene and her friend Soraya will hold a double exhibition that will run for two months. Based on what we’ve had sneak peeks of, it promises to be a colorful and joyous collection. As they put it themselves, “In ‘First Impressions’ we chose to be free of any rules and to try many different subjects and styles, as opposed to having a set theme. We both love to paint but only this year have really invested in the art. Working up to this exhibition has been a very exciting and satisfying experience.”
More information can be found here. The ABC Treehut can be found upstairs at ABC The Hague and is open during store hours.
In Amsterdam, the ABC Treehouse will display paintings by Gerard Boersma, whose work often features ABC.
Mr. Boersma observes common people and objects on streets, in stores, public transport and museums, enlarges the scenes and paints them – time finally frozen, busy lives forever captured in a moment. At first sight the subjects might appear quite ordinary and meaningless, but through Mr. Boersma’s eyes they’re anything but. It is wonderful to see familiar corners of the store zoomed in on and transformed!
Mr. Boersma’s art will be exhibited for two months starting in December and can be viewed whenever the ABC Treehouse is open for events or courses. The ABC Treehouse is situated at Voetboogstraat 11, across the square from ABC Amsterdam.
