JOHN AND NIRMI FOR BONISA (article first published : 2004-07-26)

Durban artist, painter and paper-maker John Roome and paper-maker NIRMI, are presenting a combined exhibition hosted by Neil and Liesel Wright of the quaint thatched Bonisa Private Gallery throughout August.

John Roome - currently head of the department of Fine Art at the Durban Institute of Technology - is a Durban based artist who has exhibited regularly both locally and internationally since 1976. Since arriving in Durban from Stuttgart seven years ago, NIRMI has acquired considerable skill and experience as a paper-maker. She responded to the lush natural vegetation of Durban and has made paper from wild banana (strelizia nicolai), sisal, banana and hibiscus.

There will be an Open Day on August 1 with the Artists-in-Residence, and a special viewing, in particular for interested interior designers, decorators and art collectors, on August 4. Visitors are warmly invited to attend either the Open Day on August 1 from 10h00 until 16h00, or on August 4. John Simpson will be creating his charming Japanese styled cards during the Open Day.

Visitors are welcome throughout the month, by appointment. Bonisa is a comfortable, flexible, relatively new gallery space that can be found at 47 Ronalds Rd, Kloof. For directions or more information, phone 031 764 0288. Visit the gallery’s website to preview some of the artwork and to register for further gallery news: www.bonisa.co.za.
