ELGA RABE AT CROUSE (article first published : 2008-06-7)

Greytown portrait and wildlife artist, Elga Rabe will be exhibiting her magnificent oil paintings at the pristine airy Crouse Art Gallery from June 20.

Known for her portraits and wildlife paintings, Elga Rabe has exhibited extensively around the country. Previously a school teacher, she decided to follow her passion and paint full time. Being inspired by the tranquillity and peace of country life, this transpires onto her canvases. Her portraits of African people capture their different cultures displaying their traditional and ethnic beauty. Growing up with a father who used to hunt, she developed an understanding for nature and wild animals. Being familiar with the habits of the different animals, she enjoys painting them in their natural surroundings.

Elga Rabe has taken part in numerous exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including in the Brooklyn Academy of Music; Antiquarius Gallery in New York; New York Art Expo; Philadelphia International Black Arts Festival, and at the Cardiff / SA trade and décor show. In 2006, she had an exhibit at the United Nations in Geneva. Collectors of her artwork include KZN Premier, Sbu Ndebele, J.P. Morgan (S.A. Bank), Malcolm Horton, actor Chris Tucker and the City Hall in Cardiff, Wales.
