Welcome to Peter Gentenaar MFA and Patricia Torley's site. Since 1970, we’ve been exploring the mysteries of (plant) paper fibers. We have each specialized in a different, organic facet of paper making.
Exposition: Peter's work is hanging in the Sint Gudulakerk (church/basilica built from 1300 to 1550), at the Markt, in Lochem. Open: Sunday 14.00-17.00, Wednesday 10.00-13.00 & Saturday 12.00-16.00
The 12 blue & white pieces and the saffron colored piece are for Peter's commission in Suzhou, China. It’s a beautiful location to show some of the 44 pieces before they are shipped to China in the spring!
