AFRICA WAY DIFFERENT (article first published : 2000-05-17)

Africa Way Different is offering another Bunduveld Art Tour as a follow-up to their successful event last year. Headed for a private game farm in beautiful surroundings in Mooi River, it promises to be an art tour with a difference. Taking place from September 22 to 25, it will be conducted once again by Zane Lang. An experienced artist who has exhibited successfully in Durban at venues such as the NSA Gallery and the Cafe Geneve Gallery, he currently teaches art at Glenwood High School and is preparing for his next exhibition in 2002.

"The artists on this tour will be heading into a wild spot in the Natal Midlands to settle down to some serious art-making,” says Charmaine Brogan of Africa Way Different. “The idea is not to create an art-teacher/student type relationship but to work together in an inspiring atmosphere. Artists will be encouraged to work in their own style and mediums.”

Interesting models such a sangoma will be placed against a typical African backdrop of great scenic beauty. Artists can work at their own speed while enjoying the surroundings and companionship of other artists with Zane on hand to give advice if needed. There will also be formal art theory and practical lessons and Zane is especially interested in symbols and dreams and keeping up with the latest international contemporary trends.

“This art tour is all about creating an "energy" in which artists can get down to create their own unique art with like-minded people,” adds Charmaine who is a fully qualified, specialist safari guide with much experience of the African bush throughout southern and central Africa. Both Zane and Charmaine are passionate about Africa and together ensure a unique experience for anyone who joins them. The game farm has game-viewing and drawing opportunities and blesbok and springbok are a few of the species on the property. Bird life is prolific and the backdrop of the accommodation is a gorgeous waterfall. Anyone interested in the flora of Africa will also have many subjects to commit to paper.

The cost is R1,500.00 each and artists of any proficiency in any medium are welcome. Contact Charmaine on (031) 903-1750 or 083 728-4064 or e-mail: awd@netactive.co.za. Visit the website on www.africawaydifferent.co.za
