Dreamscape Amsterdam 2010
On Saturday the 13th of March we opened in Amsterdam the largest exhibition of Imaginary Realism in the Netherlands with over forty artists representing contemporary expressions of Magical Realism, Fantastic Realism, Surrealism and Visionary Realism.
Once again Dreamscape introduces the latest developments in the field of Imaginary Realism with success. The vernissage of this Dreamscape exhibition attracted over a thousand visitors, and was opened by Gerrit Luidinga who wrote the introduction of the new Dreamscapes 2010 book.
During the vernissage on Saturday, March 13, the book Dreamscapes 2010 was released presented featuring the Russian artist Viktor Safonkin as guest of honor. Safonkin's fiery painting technique and imagination are well established within the field. The publication, issued by Imaginary Editions, features sixty-zeven international artists.
Dreamscapes has continued to monitor this progression and is once again offering a new platform for artists within the field. This Dreamscape exhibition has introduced a subtle shift from the traditional to more playful, dark and illustrative sides of the movement.
The Dreamscape Amsterdam exhibition received very good comments by art critics in 2 of the biggest newspapers of The Netherlands. We create a base for the future to make Dreamscape Amsterdam as the biggest and most important exhibition for Imaginary Realism world wide.
Dreamscape Amsterdam Exhibition is organized by Marcel Salome (Imaginary Editions) and Ella Buzo (Cabinodd Collections). Both have joined forces in developing the Dreamscape concept, driven by a large and growing network of collectors and artists. Dreamscape strives to provide a representative image of artists who have achieved the techniques of the old masters and also expose the varied styles of Imaginary Realism.

We can look back on a fantastic Dreamscape Exhibition in Amsterdam that Ella Buzo and I organized in 2008. The 2008 Dreamscape exhibition was a break trough for Imaginary Realism in the Netherlands and a start to make the Dreamscape Amsterdam Exhibition the most important international exhibition for Imaginary Realism in Europe. We are so pleased to receive so many compliments about this exhibition.
The new Dreamscape book “Dreamscapes 2009” was official released during the opening of the exhibition and the first book was given to Mr. Erik Hermida founder of Realism Amsterdam and Open Art Fair Utrecht. He was impressed to see such a high quality exhibition of imaginary realism and open the door for this kind of art at the prestige art fairs in Holland.
Many any artists have visited the opening, which made the exhibition extra special. The opening was well visit with about 600 till 700 people. Also gallery owners have visit the exhibition and some artists have found new contacts and are going to work with galleries like Galerie Utrecht, Galerie Beeldkracht and Celesta Fine Art.
The diner on the boat The Odessa was a pleasure for all the artists, gallerie owners and some collectors who could meet the artists, make new contacts and meting old friends.
In short terms we can say that The Dreamscape Amsterdam 2008 Exhibition was a successful event. We are already working on the next Dreamscape Exhibitions.
