Een initiatief van Hannah vzw met de steun van GROSH Herent


 The HANNAH foundation

The Hannah foundation is set up Flanders (Belgium) but its basic goal is to provide a framework for collaboration between people from different countries and different cultures. One of its main purposes is to enhance mutual understanding by bringing together, in one exhibition, a Belgian and a "foreign" artist.

Below are details on some ongoing or past activities


From Dec. 4 till 30, 2016  the Hannah Gallery shows art under the somewhat cryptical title "Move-Moved":

referring to recent work of sculptor Jan De Groef and "moving" impressions
by graphic artist (etchings, monotypes) Jarca Pešicová (Prague, 1935-2015).
You can find the flyer (in Dutch) here.logo pdf

From Dec. 6th till January 3th, 2016  the Hannah Gallery showed art under the title:


referring to former and recent attempts to build towers but to avoid the problems of cultural disparities (as described in the Bible).

From Feb. 1st till March 1st, 2015  the Hannah Gallery presented art under the symbolic title:
