SASA’S EXHIBITION: Aug 2019

From the 16th Aug – 5th Sept, SASA will be exhibiting members work at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town. There is a wide variety of work and there’s something to tickle the wallet of most art enthusiasts.

Flowers are always a crowd-pleaser and with spring just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to fill your rooms with some painted, longer lasting blooms.

Nature is always a great inspiration and you can see why with these three, completely different interpretations.

Monochrome black and white can be very striking, as can be seen in these two examples. Speaking to framers this week, black and white is trending at present and there are quite a few black and white pieces for sale.

There are a number of artists who render in super-realism. Some of the pieces can blow your mind. It’s not photo, it’s a painting! You have to see them to believe them.

Pop into Kirstenbosch for a cup of tea and a hot baked scone before, or after you have been to the exhibition. It’s a glorious way to spend a morning or afternoon especially if you can share it with another art-crazy person.
