ARLENE MCDADE (article first published : 2005-06-28)

Artist Arlene McDade is off to Tuscany in August, where she will be taking her paintings to a gallery in Forte dei Marmi (Fort of Marble) This area is an artist's Mecca where the rich and famous come to buy art. It is situated at the foot of mountains that glisten white with marble - home to the famous Italian sculptors of history.

Arlene has been invited to bring a collection of her latest work, which is very vivid, bold contemporary botanical art featuring frangipani's, hibiscus, Strelitzia Nicolai etc. Included in the collection are huge expanses of the Indian Ocean, fringed with wild bananas.

“I will be taking the beauty of KwaZulu-Natal with me,” says Arlene.

Included in the itinerary is a trip to Rome and Florence. “There is just so much to see and absorb,” she adds. “I look forward to the complete change of scenery and no doubt I will be bringing the beauty of Tuscany back with me in future exhibitions.”

Contacted Arlene at her Durban studio on 082 838 0338. Her work is currently exhibited at the Cape Gallery in Cape Town and can be viewed on their website at www.capegallery.co.za
