BEANBAG EXHIBITIONS (article first published : 2008-02-20)

The first exhibitions of 2008 are already on show at Beanbag Bohemia in Windermere Road and feature work by artists in the Eastern Cape.

Expanse... Landscapes from the Eastern Cape can be seen in the Reception Gallery which features works by a group of artists. Jackie Griffin Jones presents large oil paintings of gorges while Sandra Thomas focuses on landscape and botanical drawings. There are landscape mono prints on paper by Bev Samler while Fritz Farrenothen presents classical Landscape painting. Also on display are contemporary pop landscapes by Hennie Dreyer.

In the Cafe Gallery, there is Glimpse... Photography from the Eastern Cape with works by Sonja Wrethman who presents Bullet-whole Sunrise photographic series; Claire Mcnulty with her beautiful Polaroid glimpses and Nomusa Makhubu whose woven photographic portraits have an iconic quality.

In the Salon Galleries, the Quality and Qualities show has begun to evolve into a quilt of works by several artists. Joanne Hoyer presents quilted paintings; Moya Evans has adapted digi paintings.. after the masters; Tamlyn Young offers mixed medium painted blocks and there are wax and oil paintings by Selome Moeti. Also on the exhibition is Hennie Dreyer’s pop art erotica; Raja Oshi’s abstract colour fields and Terri Broll’s abstract oils on paper.

The new shows feature a selection of works from the recent African Angles charity exhibition hosted by the Cintsa River Golf Estate just outside East London in the Eastern Cape. The show bought together a large variety of artists from the area and raised an astounding R40,000 for the African Angles Charity. Beanbag Bohemia art curator Tamlyn Martin was involved in mentoring the project and is pleased to have the opportunity of introducing Durban audiences to some of the great work being produced in the Eastern Cape.
