On any given week, there are many exciting activities and events going on at the BSN. Sometimes it’s hard to choose just what to focus on. Like today, for example…it’s European Day of Languages and Senior School Voorschoten is holding their annual ‘Languages village’; it’s the final day of pitches for students hoping to take part in our TEDxYouth event in November. Based on what we’ve seen so far, it’s going to be an amazing event! For all the latest, follow TEDxYouthBSN on Twitter.

And, this evening, at the BSN Language Centre, it’s the opening night of the exhibition ’Overview of Still Lifes’ by Dutch artist, Wilfried van den Boorn. Still Life paintings, depicting objects, flowers, food and insects from close-up, were popular in The Netherlands during the Golden Age (17th century) and are known for their precision and detail. Wilfried’s interpretation of the genre is innovative and contemporary while staying true to the characteristics of the genre. His work encourages us to stop and take some time to quietly study the details of the subjects. Such moments of stillness and contemplation are perhaps a welcome pause in our busy, fast-paced lives.

Those of us based in the same building as the Language Centre have had the privilege of being able to walk past these beautiful paintings each day. If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, do drop by and have a look–the exhibition runs until 14 November.
