Every year around Easter, Sculpture-Garden Cuyck opens her gates
to the summer-exhibition. The sculpture-garden, characteristically
situated next to the St.Martin's Church in the centre of Cuyk,

offers room to about 20 sculptures. The garden is specially equipped
for the works to show themselves to their full advantage.
In this area of profound scenic beauty (the so-called "Rottemeren",
north of Rotterdam), the Artihove 'Art Centre' is situated. The
typically Dutch polder landscape with it's waterditches, it's
dense rows of pollard-willows and open grass areas, forms the
ideals platform for the various art-items of our collection.

practised for ages. Besides traditionally inspired works of art,
in our sculpture-garden you will particularly find contemporary
- and often very expressive - art.

which radiates a calm quiet as well as a superior background to
the sculptures exposed. Every year 'Art in the Polder' organizes
various "theme-sale-exhibitions" and in the sculpture-garden
and gallery you can also take part in guided tours and lextures
