On Monday 1 September, the Sanlam exhibition hall at Kirstenbosch was a hive of activity, as busy teams of workers hung the artworks for exhibition. There were over 600 works in all, including the portfolio pieces and space had to be found for all of them. Thanks to Sylvia de Villiers for a well run hanging!
She told us of her love of art from a very
young age and her passion for sharing it
with less privileged children, who would
not necessarily be exposed to it, or get the chance to explore their own creativity
otherwise. Thank you Ayesha.
Kirstenbosch has, for the past few days, had a steady
stream of visitors, attracted by the wonderfully warm
Spring weather, which is perfect for us – a nice
collection of red-dotted “sold” labels is gathering on
Thanks to everyone involved, for your hard work (especially
Mary for her usual sterling catering job and Adrian and Jeremy
who ran the bar) it couldn’t happen without you.
