All Art+ is a special exhibition series presented by NYC’s Van Der Plas Gallery. In 2020, inspired by the growing reach and talent of artists using Instagram as their main artistic platform (especially in the age of COVID-19), Adriaan Van Der Plas aimed to create a place for these artists to showcase their works for in-person viewers in the heart of the art world, Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighborhood.
From promising emerging artists showing their work in public for the first time to international mid-career artists looking to test the NYC market, All Art+ presents artists with an opportunity to present in a themed, salon-style exhibition.

CHAOS AND STILLNESS
Van Der Plas presents All Art+
On view: Friday, January 20th through Sunday, January 29th, 2023
Opening Reception: Friday, January 20th, 6-8 PM
(NEW YORK, NY) From Friday, January 20th through Sunday, January 29th, 2023, Van Der Plas presents an All Art+ Group Exhibition titled: “Chaos and Stillness.”
Chaos may characterize the formlessness of matter present before the creation of the universe and stillness speaks to a complete absence where perhaps sense is not activated, both being moments in time where the materiality of the real doesn’t surface into a recognizable object. The group show, “Chaos and Stillness,” invites artists to share their views on these states of being related to their experiences with visual and material culture.

Red Blue and Yellow
(NEW YORK, NY) From Friday, December 2nd through Sunday, December 11th, 2022, Van Der Plas presents an All Art+ Group Exhibition titled: “Red, Blue, and Yellow.” The renowned Dutch Painter, Piet Mondrian, once stated that “to approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual” (1956). Piet Mondrian encouraged artists to look through everyday materiality and explore art with their inner instinct. The group show, “Red, Blue, and Yellow,” invites artists to share their own stories, origins, and worldviews in their work and explore ideas deeply personal to them.
(NEW YORK, NY) From October 28th to November 6th, Van Der Plas presents an All Art+ Group Exhibition titled: “Found Voice.” Psychologist Carl Jung believed in the confrontation of one’s Self and its necessity for one to experience personal growth and marry the unconscious to the conscious to control one’s fate. One must balance the nonsense with sense and appreciate the spirit of madness in order to think and speak beyond the rules of society. “Found Voice” is a group show seeking to explore individuality and the relationship between one’s own darkness and their lightness, creating a platform for artists to, in the words of Jung, face their own souls. We invite artists to share their own stories, origins, and worldviews in their work and explore ideas deeply personal to them.
Penetrating the Surface
(NEW YORK, NY) From September 17th to September 25th, Van Der Plas presents an All Art+ Group Exhibition titled: “Penetrating the Surface.” Writer Saul Bellow saw art as a source of truth beneath clouds of confusion and insincerity. Where distractions provide us with a misleading illusion of comfort, they prevent us from truly confronting the truths lying beneath. “Penetrating the Surface'' is a group show seeking to explore this relationship between attention and distraction, creating a platform for artists to express the unfettered authenticity hidden beneath layers of superficiality. We encourage artists to share their own stories, origins, and worldviews in their work and explore ideas deeply personal to them.

APRIL 29th – MAY 8th, 2022 Van Der Plas Gallery’s All Art+ Group Exhibition, “At a Crossroads,” features the work of over forty artists and invites these artists to shed light not only on world circumstances but the relationship between visual creation and junction.
Key of Dreams
MARCH 11th – MARCH 20th, 2022 Inspired by the work of the great surrealist artist René Magritte, Van Der Plas Gallery’s upcoming All Art+ Group Exhibition, “Key of Dreams,” invites artists to give us the key to their dreams through their respective creative practices.
JANUARY 20th – JANUARY 30th, 2022 Articulated through expansive landscapes, abstract portraits, sculpture, and everything in between, Van Der Plas’ upcoming All Art+ Group Exhibition, “Creating Reality,” identifies the artist’s innermost visions and reminds the viewer of the cogent possibility to articulate their own.
