Frans van Baars
Frans van Baars is a truly gifted artist who has overcome incredible obstacles. His work is now a part of the rich history of Coastal North Carolina and each.
Van Baars said he has offered a painting as a gift to other Habitat for Humanity families in every place he has lived because he believes that “people starting over, whatever the circumstances, and pulling themselves up by their bootstraps have worked hard to begin over.”
The House of van Baars gallery in Wilson, North Carolina is open and displays original paintings by Frans van Baars. Call or email for a private gallery showing.
