Vote for our new exhibition

Support the gAalerie à ciel ouvert/Openluchtgalerij by voting for our new exhibition:
After the success of a first photo exhibition in the blind windows of the neighborhood around Van Aa street (“Lighthouse” by Arnaud Ghys), we wish to introduce a new photographer from Brussels, Raymond Dakoua.
A new opportunity to embellish the neighborhood, to create a social link through the different animations around this exhibition and to support the culture!
Thank you for your support!

Our friend and neighbour Christian has passed away

Notre ami et voisin Christian s’en est allé. 😪
Architecte érudit, il en a éclairé plus d’un de ses conseils judicieux, nous permettant notamment de trouver la meilleure solution technique pour la réalisation de la gAalerie à ciel ouvert.
Il a mis en lumière l’histoire du quartier et de son architecture, nous contant celle du familistère “cité Gomand” lors des fêtes des voisins.
Il nous gratifiait de sa bonne humeur quand on le croisait, promenant son chien ou aux concerts de jazz sur la place Fernand Cocq.
Nul doute qu’il continuera à briller en allumant une étoile de plus au firmament.
Nos plus douces pensées accompagnent son épouse Jacqueline et toute sa famille.
Sylvia, pour l’équipe gAalerie,

Setting the scene

Arnaud’s pictures are more beautiful than the others, the printer is found, the steps with the town planning are well under way,…  All we have to do now is to stage it!
