Con Tonnaer, Gernot Becker and Jerôme Trimbos showing their craftmanship for their special guests, on this special evening tastery at the Valkenburg galery location of Con Tonnaer.
Thorn, 'the white village' is well reknown in Limburg for it's cosy centre with tiny white houses. This village holds the roots of the Tonnaer family and that is why Con did not need a minute thought to say yes to this exclusive exhibition of his work.
The title for this exhibition translates as "from white" and insiders know that this had a double load in Con's case. All starts from a white canvas, from a blank mind.
17-18 & 24-25 MARCH AND 31 MARCH-1 APRIL 2PM UNTIL 7PM
Tefaf 2012 and KIV weeks Con will be at his private gallery this year. During the three weekends you can admire a lot of the recent art by Con Tonnaer in his own gallery and workshop in Valkenburg.

Con was a guest at the last literary cultural café in Thorn. Some 60 interested art lovers attended the afternoon interview, where the host managed to unravel some secrets of the life and inspiration of the artist Con Tonnaer in an interesting and entertaining session of quest and answer.
Good to see an early work discovered by one of my relatives by coincidence. Almost 40 years of age is this painting created by a 27 year old Con Tonnaer.
