Martine Brand's classic master paintings are oil on panel. Martine uses the chiaroscuro, the lighting technique from the 16th century and the technique of that time. Her subjects are often inspired by strong women wearing the latest fashions or from the catwalk and jewelry of the great fashion designers. Although Martine successfully graduated from both the Fashion Academy and the Art Academy, she learned this classic technique from her grandmother Loeki Kleijn, who has painting in her blood, a relative of the well-known Dutch landscape painter Johannes Kleijn, a pupil of Andreas Schelfhout.

Rob van den Broek is a musical instrument artist.


He makes non-existent fantasy instruments, and they sound great too!

Many famous contemporary composers have written works for these instruments, and many well-known musicians have performed with them in the greatest halls of the world.

As a visual artist, Rob is guided by the curiosity-driven search for the limits of materials and the tension that the materials can handle and generate. His method is experimenting with material and form, constantly reacting to what arises and what develops. 

Rob is making an exhibition and a presentation especially for Festival Groeneveld. 

Kids beware! Join Rob on a journey of discovery to create his own fantasy instrument in his studio at the Castle.

Video exhibition - online performances by artists from different parts of the world. 

Due to the Corona pandemic and the lockdowns, musicians could not perform for months, let alone see each other.

We got to know each other while taking the BYOM (Be Your Own Manager - Bernhard Kerres) online course, especially for musicians. Not only did friendships arise, but also special ideas, such as setting up a new online music festival - Nextus.

In collaboration with artists from the Nextus festival, we present a video exhibition of performances recorded in times of lockdown by young musicians from different parts of the world.
