A variety of artworks, done by both well-known and up-and-coming artists, can be seen at the Centurion Art Gallery this week. The Kaleidoscope Exhibition, as its name implies, showcases artwork of different forms, mediums, styles and colours that nonetheless form a unit.
The CEO of the National Art Council, Rosemary Mangope, graced the audience with her presence at the opening evening on 19 November and delivered an inspirational speech regarding artists and their work in South Africa, stating that such exhibitions were the ideal platform for artists to exhibit their work. Yaki Naudé also provided the entertainment for the guests.
Visitors who attended the opening evening and visited the exhibition during the week wrote in the guest registry that the exhibition was both inspirational and wonderful. Manda Bester, the organiser of the exhibition and an independent arts and crafts consultant, assists individuals and corporates in locating and purchasing arts and crafts.
Bester said that she wanted to provide a platform for up-and-coming artists to exhibit their work. A total of 109 contemporary and commercial artworks from 40 different artists are on display. Well-known artists from Centurion such as Allain Nortje and Ronel Kellerman displayed some of their work, as did Isa Steynberg and Coert Wiechers.
All the art is for sale.
