About the Exhibition
Art Hollandaise is this year run for the sixth time, with more than 20 talented artists with a Dutch background who have made Whangarei their home. The show promises to be of great quality with a variation of works in different media.
“Koningsdag” or King’s Day is a national holiday in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Celebrated on 27 April (26 April if the 27th is a Sunday), the date marks the birth of King Willem-Alexander.
Koningsdag is known for its nationwide vrijmarkt (“free market”), at which the Dutch sell their used items. It is also an opportunity for “orange madness” or oranjegekte, a kind of frenzy named for the national colour.
