Art gallery Waterkant

The Art Gallery Waterkant in the historic old town of Leer in Eastfrisia was founded in 2010 and houses the permanent exhibition of the marine painter Andreas Kruse.

In addition to maritime oil paintings of the navy and civilian fleet, maritime landscapes are also exhibited here.
A permanent inventory of around 250 oil paintings leaves little to be desired.
Furthermore there is a complete atelier on the first floor , so that the artist Andreas Kruse can work directly there. At Times this studio can also be examined.

In addition to the works of the marine painter Andreas Kruse, illustrations, art prints and etchings created by Corinna Steukmann are also on display.

The Waterkant gallery is normally accessible during the following opening times:

Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Other viewing appointments are also possible on request.

Due to external appointments, the opening times cannot always be guaranteed. Therefore, if you have specific requests, we recommend making an appointment in advance!

The art and studio house Waterkant takes a winter break in January and February.
