A mixed media group exhibition opens this Friday the 25th of August at 7pm with guest speaker Gwendolyn Meyer, to be followed by a series of poetry readings by well known local poets, including Karen Leigh & Mike Cope.
“Drought and extreme weather are the new normal part of climate change in this new planetary epoch we now call the Anthropocene.
The scale and far- reaching consequences of the current drought in South Africa are hard to imagine. This exhibition explores how art can be a tool to explore some of the complexities of these new planetary realities such as drought. With work from over 35 artists this exhibition will have a particularly South African approach.”
Artists participating include:
Karin Daymond, Lien Botha, Gerald Tabata, Frans Mulder, MJ Lourens, Peter van Straten, Asanda Kupa, Hanien Conradie, JP Meyer, Jill Trappler, Di Johnson-Ackerman, Mark Hiltout, Gwendolyn Meyer, Vuyisa Potina, Shelley Maisel, Cheryl Traub-Adler, Laurel Holmes, Noeleen Kleve, Natalie Poole, Juria le Roux, Julia van Schalkwyk, Marguerite Roux, Harry Kentratos, Dave Robertson, Simon Sephton, Margot Hattingh, Fawa Conradie, Cathy de Villiers, Theresa Jo Wessels, Hannah Jo Wessels and more.
