Day 5 Lock-down in South-Africa. End of the month Studio-newsletter time!
I hope you are doing fine and well under the current circumstances.
I’ve been keeping busy in the kitchen, riding bicycle with my boys= round and around the house, reading articles, stitching a little bit and trying to stay informed. What have you been up to?
During the monhts pre-corona, I’ve been preparing for the “Wild, Wild Life exhibition curated by Alex Hamilton to be hosted by the Gallery Glen Carlou. It was supposed to open on the 5th of April 2020, but the opening (virtual or otherwise) have been delayed until after lock-down. I will keep you posted, but you are welcome to request a digital catalogue from: firstname.lastname@example.org!

In the meantime I am preparing for a solo exhibition, titled: “A walk in the park”. at the Pretoria Art Association. It is scheduled to open on the 29th of May 2020. That is if all goes well. Stay tuned for news on that.

My work featured in The Sunday Times yesterday.
A big thank you to everyone involved, and to Knysna Fine Art gallery for letting me know.
Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead!
You are on our mailing list because you are a past or previous client, or have requested to be on our mailing list and we would appreciate your reading the following heartfelt letter.
You may have heard of the utterly devastating fires that have hit Knysna and the surrounding towns. This is possibly the worst natural disaster South Africa has had in a century or more. So many people have lost everything and the economy of this once lovely place has suffered a hammer blow from which we will literally take years to recover. Knysna Fine Art, which turns 20 this spring (and we will be celebrating this milestone in, hopefully, greener times) is not immune to these hard times although we somehow survived the flames.
If you were to consider purchasing art from us for the next month you would not only be adding to your collection, but making an enormous difference to us and the greater Knysna community.
We will give half of any profit we make (in your name, if you wish) to community funds which include Knysna Animal Welfare, the Red Cross, and the Mayor’s Fund. We as a gallery, the wonderful artists we represent & Knysna as a whole would be helped immeasurably by your actions.
