CHAGALL EXHIBITION EXTENDED (article first published : 2003-09-17)

Many people from KZN flocked to Johannesburg to see the Marc Chagall when it was hosted by the Standard Bank Art Gallery. Those KZN art lovers expecting to be in Cape Town until October 6 may want to take in a further major exhibition of the artistís works. Or even make a special trip to the Mother City for the purpose!

The exhibition Marc Chagall Hadassah: From Sketch to Stained Glass Windows has been extended for two months until October 6, due to popular demand. The exhibition is being presented by the South African Jewish Museum in Cape Town.

"Well over 7,000 people have visited the exhibition so far," says the museumís director Shea Albert. "We are delighted at the interest shown by such a broad spectrum of people of all ages and denominations."

The Museum has also acquired a newly completed biographical video of the artist, his work and the cities in which he lived and worked. This video is screened twice daily for visitors to the museum.

Hadassah - From Sketch to Stained Glass Windows comprises a progression of 62 preparatory sketches for Chagall's stained glass windows in the Hadassah Synagogue in Jerusalem. A photographic exhibition of Chagall at work accompanies the main exhibition, which also includes a recreated model of the windows themselves and replicas of the four trial windows created by the artist. A biographical display, created at the South African Jewish Museum, completes the Cape Town exhibition.

The SA Jewish Museum is open Sunday to Thursday from 10h00 to 17h00; Fridays 10h00 to 14h00. Open public holidays but closed on Jewish holidays. Chagall movie screenings: Sundays to Thursdays: 11h30 and 14h30. Friday: 11h30.

Entrance fee R50 (R25 for South African pensioners and students, and R15 for children under 12). Special tours are available by arrangement.
