Art at the rack shack
Four times a year, The Rack Shack will be hosting art shows produced by the Cola Connection.
The Cola Connection is a production company that aims to promote Dutch performing and visual art in New York. The Cola Connection is Corine Overvest (Amsterdam) and Laura Henny (owner of The Rack Shack), two art-loving, ambitious Dutch producers who are proud of the talent and work their home country creates. Their dream is to introduce the world to Dutch artists they believe in so their work isn’t limited to the audience of their tiny home country, The Netherlands.

The Cola Connection presents The Monkey's on the Table, drawings by Sarah Jonker.
The Monkey’s On The Table, will be the first of a series of curated performances and exhibitions by Dutch artists at lingerie boutique The Rack Shack.
Sarah Jonker's drawings are poetically theatrical.
Her dark, absurd universe is jam-packed with detached limbs and blatant sexuality. Created in India ink, crayon, and ecoline, her compositions conjure elements of surrealism and postimpressionism. More importantly, they will make you laugh and desire to be a statue.
Jonker is a Dutch visual and performing artist. In 2006, she graduated from the prestigious Academy of Theater in Arnhem, The Netherlands. In conjunction with her acting career, she has produced artwork for shows by Dutch theater companies including De Toneelmakerij and Likeminds.
Over the course of her career, Jonker has achieved recognition as both an actor and a visual artist. She has had exhibitions in Arnhem, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Alkmaar, and Berlin, and The Cola Connections is delighted to debut her work in New York City.
