A weekend of art from around the country in Marloth Park

Artists from all corners of South Africa visited Marloth Park to exhibit some of their pieces.

Some of the top artists from around the country exhibited their stunning works at the Kruger Safari Eco Lodge from Friday to Sunday, March 29 to 31.

Organised by Zonica Spies, Noelene Linaker and the owner of the lodge, Petrus Carstens, the exhibition featured the works of 11 artists from Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape and Johannesburg. It also saw two art dealers come to show off some pieces.

Spies said the art was set up in all the rooms of the lodge, and the visitors were able to walk through and view the different pieces, ranging from paintings to ceramics, throughout the weekend.

The artists who were not able to attend were Louisa Kruger, Cliff Brown and Hari Lualhati, all from the Western Cape, as well as Coleen Williams from White River and André Vorster from Marloth Park.

The art dealers were Choni Gavin from Pretoria and Carol Hogarth from Johannesburg.

Spies said the exhibition went well and there was an influx of visitors over the weekend. She said the guests were treated to food made by chef Morné Retief, originally from Stellenbosch but now living in Marloth Park.
