Monday 19 September was a wonderfully Springy day, just perfect for the opening of our second members’ exhibition for 2016.
The John Winter Hall at Kirstenbosch was bursting with beautiful works of art – a feast for the eyes of all who attended. Mary’s superb catering provided a different sort of feast, which everyone enjoyed while browsing the halls, glass of wine in hand.
The opening address was given by SANAVA secretary, Ben Rootman. He certainly made us pay attention with his speech, drawing parallels between art and politics – if you keep doing work that the people appreciate, they’ll keep buying it! – and the importance of art as commentary in any cultural or political climate. Thank you Ben, for your empowering words.
Thanks to all involved for another enjoyable exhibition opening. The work will be on show until Thursday September 29.
