05 August '12 by the editors

The 37th international art and antiques fair 'Art Nocturne Knocke' at the Belgian Coast will start next weekend. Art Nocturne Knocke has become one of the most prestigious arts & antiques fairs of the Belgium summer season.

Young art lovers and experienced collectors alike appreciate the evening fair that excels for style and quality and the presence of carefully selected participants from the international forum.

The dialogue between old and contemporary art responds to the call for good taste. The fair showcases antique furniture from Haute Epoque to Art Nouveau, sculptures, silverware, glassware, jewellery, paintings from 5 centuries of European art, African art, oriental furnishing, carpets, china, Japanese art, graphic art, miniatures, cartography, modern and contemporary art.

Since last year the fair has been held at two venues - CC Scharpoord and Hotel la Réserve – located within walking distance of each other on the banks of the delightful Zegemeer lake.
