A cosy evening to catch up!

In the exhibition Marie Cécile Thijs – Between Heaven and Earth, the art photographer Marie Cécile Thijs (Heerlen 1964) takes us into her world where time and space fade. A fairytale universe with floating vases, lifelike unicorns, angelic creatures and magical scenes.
It is raining chickpeas. Royal cats with crowns look at us unperturbed. Children stick out their tongue unabashedly or are frozen in a secret scream. Time does not exist, in a thunderous silence everything comes to life. Objects get personality. Portraits become still life and still lifes become portraits.
Marie Cécile Thijs: “If in a parallel world, where they will lead their own lives and get a new meaning, we look at it, but see another reality.”
On Saturday evening 10 November our Charity team (Rina, Linda B, and Ingrid vd E) held the first fund raising event for de Hongingraad – Pub Quiz / Trivia Night! Six teams of participants (members + their guests) had 4 rounds of challenging questions from Quiz Master, Linda B. Wine, beer, soft drinks & snacks & cupcakes were available at an attractive price. Also thank you to Bep for the lovely venues, and Amy for helping at the bar.
The evening raised € 285,60 for the charity! Well done to all and thank you!
