LIVING ART (article first published : 2004-09-16)

The work of 18 artists in the Midlands Meander new Living Art category will be launched at an exhibition at Indigo Fields Gallery, Balgowan, from October 16 to 31.

The exhibition will showcase the diversity of local talent from Nguni cows carved from fallen wood or twisted in wire to sophisticated platinum jewellery and whimsical dragons. Botanical paintings of indigenous flora, photographs of Midlands scenes and the creatures which inhabit them as well as bold canvases and sculptures all take their inspiration from the surrounding landscape.

The official opening, to be held on October 16, will include a presentation by motivational guest speaker, author and artist, Musa E. Zulu who will co-exhibit some of his works with Midlands Meander artists. Copies of his recent book, The Language of Me, will be available at the exhibition.

While on the Midlands Meander, revisit old favourites. Some of the original artists are still around and there are other galleries, which showcase the work of talented local people. Further information about the Exhibition from the Midlands Meander Association on 033 330 8195, e-mail: info@midlandsmeander.co.za
