DURBAN PRESENCE ON ARTCHA (article first published : 2008-05-19)

KZN personalities actress Lisa Bobbert who is appearing in the comedy Shirley Valentine and painter Anton Benzon feature in SABCís new arts programme, Artcha, which is aired on Wednesday nights on SABC2 at 20h00.

Artcha serves up SAís hottest Art. This week on Artcha (May 21), South Coast impression landscape painter Anton Benzon takes viewers through a fine art masterclass demonstrating basic techniques in landscape painting.

The programme comes from the opening of Shaleen Surtie-Richardsí one woman show, Shirley Valentyn. Also on the programme is young artist award winner, photographer Lolo Veleko. Young Afrikaans rockers Straatligkinders pay tribute to South African musicians that have inspired them, and they further the exploration of investment art by chatting to antiques experts. They find out more about Natanielís new lifestyle range, ĎKaalkopí. They wrap up the show in Durban where impressionist oil painter Anton Benzon gives presenter Masello Motana a masterclass in pallet knife technique. Anton Benzonís work can currently be seen in the Anton Benzon @ Crouse Art Gallery KZN, which is at 56 Adrain Road in Morningside.

On May 28, Artcha kicks off with the international production, Merchants of Bollywood. Masello chats to Durbanís Lisa Bobbert about her one-woman production of Shirley Valentine. Shirley Valentine is a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband's chips 'n egg, wondering what happened to her life. But when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to Greece for two, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light. Lisa Bobbert plays Valentine in this KickstArt Production directed by Steven Stead and designed by Greg King.

Capetonian Hellie Pienaar showcases the latest in food styling, while renowned sculpture artist Jan Van Der Merwe takes us through a masterclass. Also featured is young up and coming musician and actor Hennie Jacobs.
