The confrontation with the Azorean landscape and culture has made a major impact on the work of painter-philosopher Pieter Adriaans. In 2015 Pieter and his wife Rini opened a cultural center in the old cheese factory in Santo Antonio. By means of this site we make the works, by artists and local craftsmen and -women, available for an international public.
In Atelier De Kaasfabriek (Dutch for Cheese Factory), in Santo Antonio on the island of São Jorge we organize concerts,courses and other activities. We have regular expositions of works by local and international artists and a permanent display of works of Pieter Adriaans.
