Galerie Fons Welters, located in the heart of the Amsterdam gallery district, opened its doors in 1988.
Fons Welters' primary aim is to start working with artists in an early stage in their professional development. Almost all artists represented started their career at the gallery. Fons Welters takes great interest in helping them to begin, and, later, to expand their careers both in the Netherlands and abroad. Many of them have now entered the international arena.
Besides working with Dutch artists, the attention of the gallery is also focused on artists from outside the Netherlands.
Since September 2000 the front space of the gallery has been turned into a small project space, called Playstation. This space features younger artists who are offered an opportunity to exhibit their works.
