  • List of Local Events

    Heritage Walk - Guided tour ‘The Maastricht of JAN’In the Maastricht of around 1500, numerous artists and craftsmen were active. One of them was the renowned woodcarver Jan van Steffeswert. He carried out commissions for many churches and sextons in Maastricht, but his craftsmanship was also appreciated outside the city walls. Today, Van Steffeswert’s work can be admired in cities such as New York, Brussels, and Liege.
    The most extensive collection is housed in the Bonnefanten Museum, where one of his masterpieces is also on display: the Richly Adorned Lady, a small boxwood sculpture about 18cm tall, acquired by the museum during TEFAF in 2020. In addition to the impressive quality of his carvings, Van Steffeswert is known for signing his sculptures, a practice that was rare in the late Middle Ages. One of his signatures consisted of the three letters JAN.
    During the walk, participants will be discover the traces of JAN throughout Maastricht. Where did he work? Who were his patrons? How did he obtain his materials? These questions, along with aspects of sculpture restoration, will be discussed during the walk.
    Emerging Artists UnveiledA dozen Maastricht galleries provide a platform for local and young talents (up to 27 years old) during TEFAF. The talents applied to an Open Call distributed through the art academy, Jan van Eijck Academy, and the Collaborating Studios Maastricht (SAM). A professional jury has selected the applications, and the chosen ones will be presented. Each participating gallery will organize a special activity with these talents during one of the TEFAF days and will keep its doors open throughout the entire fair.
