Art Portfolio Exhibition: March 2019

The Art Portfolio Exhibition took place at Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens from 23 March – 17 April, 2019.

A wide range of high quality paintings was on display and there was something for everyone’s taste. There were large and small ones, traditional and more modern, as well as a cornucopia of subject matter and painting styles.

Here are a few examples (some are close-ups) of the art on display:

Lesley Charnock


African Rhythm (oils) – R22 500 was a colourful, modern, collaged composition of African women

African Elegance (oils) – R9 500 was an expressionistic interpretation of a portrait of an African woman

Lyn Northam

Greedy Gulls (oils) – R5 500 was a moody, limited colour palette painting of gulls. A very interesting & dramatic composition

Dove (oils) – R2 500 – A smaller painting but absolutely captivating. The use of light and warm tones touched the heart

Mel Elliott

Boat & Gulls (oils) – R6 800
A very moody and graphic painting. The brushstrokes, almost impossible to see

Shaune Rogatschnig

Reach (oils) – R17 000
Shaune has a great understanding of her subject matter and her expressive use of colour and brushstroke make her paintings very popular with buyers

The exhibition was a pleasure to behold. So many paintings – so much inspiration, so many fine artists in and around Cape Town.
