Frits van Eeden Gallery
In May of 2013, the Frits van Eeden Gallery was dedicated to showcasing artworks created by area art educators and artists. In 1979 Van Eeden entered a juried competition at the Brevard Art Museum where he won Best-In-Show with a life-size sculpture of horses. This marked the beginning of Van Eeden’s 30-plus year connection to the museum
The Frits Van Eeden Gallery features a variety of special events and rotating exhibitions throughout the year featuring work by area artists and art educators. The gallery is curated by the Foosaner Art Museum’s exhibition team and artists are selected by invitation only.
