BACK AT THE MUSEUM! finissage and tours with Fred Schley

The surprising exhibition BACK IN THE MUSEUM! Fred Schley is in until Sunday 11 October Museum Slager to see. There will be a real finissage on Sunday 4 October. Then Fred Schley himself will be present in the museum and will provide guided tours from 13.30 pm. Would you like to participate in Fred Schley's guided tours on Sunday, October 4? Please let us know via telephone number 073-6133216 or info @

The exhibition BACK IN THE MUSEUM! shows that Fred Schley, who is nationally and internationally known and had many exhibitions, has embarked on a new course. He discovered the Dutch landscape and we see this in paintings of the surroundings of 's-Hertogenbosch, including Wamberg, the Bossche Broek, the Iron Man and the area around the Maximakanaal. The yellow hall of Museum Slager is reserved for the portraits of Fred Schley. Fred Schley used to paint the portraits often on commission. Now he has taken the initiative himself. Portraits of friends and self-portraits are on display: very personal and freely painted.

Many visitors are surprised about and by Fred Schley's new works. This can be read in the comments in the guestbook. Also the combination of the paintings of Fred Schley with the works from the permanent collection Slagers is much appreciated.

Rob Smolders, who has been following Fred Schley's development for a long time, was also surprised and wrote a nice, extensive blog about his findings. In it he writes, among other things: “The adventure in his (Fred Schleys, sve) art does not lie in the stories of distant journeys. It is in his ability to apply colors to a piece of cloth and thus create space, to depict a forest, brook or mountain wall where there used to be only white linen. With a few brushstrokes to suggest poles along a road that thus gets the right perspective. ”
