It is a great privilege to be included amongst the august list of 55 artists who are participating in this exhibition of 550 works at Liebrecht Gallery in Somerset West. Some friends and I will be going down for the opening and I'll post pix as soon as I can... I have seen some exceptional work in the sneak previews... if you are anywhere near the Western Cape in the next 2 months this one is really worth a visit.

Another thing that has made participating in this exhibition so enjoyable has been the fun attitude of the Gallerist, Avril Gardiner, who has kept us informed and on our toes with some very entertaining newsletters throughout the process. Professionalism blended with fun..... now that's my kind of art encounter! Watch this space, I'll share more sneak previews of the work by various artists as it arrives!

Art cards

I have had quality art cards printed, blank inside (the sort of card that is only matt coated on the outside, so still easy to write on inside without the ink smudging.)

There is a wide variety, some older works, some more recent, paintings and photos, a variety of sizes, individually wrapped with envelopes, but can be packed in mixed batches of 5 or 10 if needed. If you are interested, you can e-mail me on sue at elgecko dot co dot za for details.
