Half way through my epic vacation, my travels have brought me to Amsterdam. I’ve found The Netherlands to be an amazing country, steeped in history, culture, and creativity. Straddling the past and the present, it seems like every corner has a plaque commemorating a historical even as well as a piece of contemporary public art. Amsterdam is also a special city because it’s home to three phenomenal jewelry galleries, Galerie Rob Koudijs, Galerie Louise Smit, and Galerie Ra. This week I’ll be visiting each of these contemporary art galleries, and will be posting images from each trip.
