Our story and mission statement
Willy Gilissen, a successful international businessman from Maastricht, was looking for a hobby after his retirement. Due to his interest in art, he decided to offer young talented artists a springboard. This is how the idea of a non-profit art center was born: GLO'ART
He converted his domain into a large art park, where the created art is presented and offered for sale. GLO’ART places its disciplines on Visual Art : painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media and drawing.
GLO'ART is a unique environment to experience contemporary art. Our mission is to show the most talented international artists to the world and promote his work.
