They say something like : All work and no play makes one …(insert word)……, but at the KKNK we played as hard as we worked and vice a versa.
One of the reasons I love exhibiting at the arts festival is the interaction. Meeting new people. Discussions. Conversations. New friendships being formed. Now I understand why my colleague Robert Hamblin referred to the artists exhibiting at last years festival as family; because after 7 days it feels like being part of a family. Thank you Robert for these snapshots!
Luckily my venue was at such a good spot that I could enjoy some tea/coffee very often and be right there at my space.
From left to right: Robert Hamblin (front), Hennie Meyer, me as Goldilocks was a mouse, and Marinda du Toit aka Johanna Brandt.
I am a huge admirer of the work by Willem Boshoff, and it was an honour to finally meet him. He was one of the main festival artists. His show was called : Big druid in his cubicle. See more here
Another artist I admire is Gordon Froud. He was like Willem Boshoff another one of the main festival artists….There were 3 this year! His show was called: a Retrospective of exhibitions I never had. You can read more here.
and here is another festival selfie….
I had many interesting conversations with these two gentleman. Check out Robert’s work here, and Roelof’s work here.
Last but not least: A picture taken by Ferdinand Bruwer of this years KKNK festival art curator Sandra Hanekom in my venue (Rubber Kingdom 😉 )
