EXHIBITION: SALON A

CECILIA VAN HEERDEN

"DIVERSITY IN SQUARES"

Most of the paintings in this exhibition were inspired by natural objects or phenomena. A dominant theme is movement, as suggested in the marine paintings, in sharp contrast with static objects, as in the still life works

EXHIBITION: SALON B

MARK HILLTOUT

"ONE SUMMER"

A celebration of unwanted corrugated iron and the result of one summer's work. "I am fascinated by imperfection, in all facets of Art and Design. This has drawn me to the beauty of old, painted and rusted corrugated iron." Also the title of the book by Bill Bryson that Mark explains as "the best book I've ever ready".

EXHIBITION: SALON C

CANDICE DAWN B

"STILL LIFE WITH..."

"Within the interiors and still spaces: boxes and closed rooms… piles of books and glass panes, bones on a shelf, small black birds and hounds on plinths and the ever iconic “bunny”. A body of paintings in charcoal, oil and resin and some mixed media inspired by my own interior spaces and a fondness for using animals as metaphors. Playing with solace, simplicity, monotone and the still object in a space." 

THE CUBE

SOUTH AFRICAN FLORA

Curated by Mervyn Gers. In collaboration with the Ruth Prowse Art School - graphic design and jewelry department.

To show our support for the World Design Capital 2014, we have transformed part of our Clay Museum into a design emporium - with ceramics, jewellery, design, fabric and photography. The exhibitions will change with a new theme every two months.
