Artthrob proudly presents the launch of its fifth portfolio. “We have been extremely lucky in being able to create a portfolio containing works by William Kentridge, Senzeni Marasela, Sam Nhlengethwa, Walter Oltmann, Claudette Schreuders and Sue Williamson. In celebration of this occasion we are also exhibiting several other works by these artists whose practices have defined much of South Africa’s contemporary art landscape over the last thirty years.
We will also be exhibiting our notable fourth portfolio, which contains works by the now acclaimed younger artists: Dineo Bopape, Georgina Gratrix, Cameron Platter, Athi-Patra Ruga and James Webb. A selection of these artists other works also forms part of this exhibition. We would like to thank all of the participating artists for their much-valued support.” Matthew Blackman Editor of Artthrob
Patrick Latimer presents PARKING LOTS in the Long Gallery. Parking lots are often found right next to some of the most interesting places a road can take you. This series of acrylic paintings explores some of Cape Town's best known and rarely appreciated parking lots. Utilising a naive style with odd, almost aerial perspectives of the cars and people, these paintings focus more on the narrative of the visitor's arrival and departure than the 'beauty shots' normally associated with these well known landmarks.
MAKE ME AN OFFER is an exhibition of generously donated artworks with the full proceeds from sales going to the Artreach fund. The Artreach Fund was founded by the AVA committee in the late 1980s; its vision was to create a fund that would assist needy and deserving visual artists with their art-related needs.
