Fryslân in Mokum is an collaboration between two galeries in the 9 Straatjes district. The Dutch Accent Gallery, owned by Ton Verdegaal, and KunstHaar galery and hairdresser, owned by Jitse de Vries, are only 12 meters apart and they share one vision for the shopping area. So, a collaboration seemed inevitable.
With work from over 10 artists The Dutch Accent gallery needed space to have host solo expositions. That is where de Vries came in. Both him and Verdegaal want to fill the 9 straatjes district with beautiful art. So, it felt only natural to offer up some of the space KunstHaar had, for the space The Dutch Accent Gallery needed.
