The Pronkkoamer is a gallery for contemporary art, at a distance of less than 30 km from Groningen town on the much praised Hogeland ("high land"). With roots in this historically rich landscape – the gallery is situated in the former pub opposite the centuries old church – the Pronkkoamer represents all disciplines within contemporary art, without confining itself to specific trends.

The Pronkkoamer exists since 20 years and during this period the aim has ever been to exhibit on the Hogeland professional art of a high quality. The gallery tries to have a low threshold so that everyone, be it child or adult, judge or no judge of art, can enjoy the exhibits. From conversations with visitors it appears that mostly this way of working is very much appreciated, as well as the ever again surprising exhibitions.

Gallery owner Mar Vedder, being herself a designing artist, knows again and again how to get together well-arranged exhibitions with captivating combinations of artists and works of art. Combinations which strike one by the harmony of the works chosen. In other cases it is the contrast which makes the works appear to full advantage.

The gallery is opened every Saturday and Sunday from 10.30 till 17.00 hrs. Besides, visits on appointment are possible. The gallery is closed during the months January and February.
