KNYSNA NEWS - Anyone who attended the opening of Knysna Art Society's latest exhibition will tell you it was one for the books – and what better way to introduce the society's new committee than through their own works of brilliance in a show titled Commit.
Local artists and art enthusiasts came out in numbers despite the cold weather on the opening night at the Old Gaol Museum on Friday 21 June for an evening of art in all forms – from the music provided by spectacular saxophonist Dax Butler, the ArtBeats drummers and a surprise act by a trio of women known as Imbewu, to the detail in the flavoursome food on offer.
The committee who is dead set on having the art speak for itself, shared their vision and plans for the year, and extended an invite for all artists to take ownership of the gallery and challenge themselves to always dig deep.
The highlight of the evening, though, was when attendees started dancing and Imbewu joined the saxophonist on stage and everyone got lost in the music.
The exhibition runs for the month of July and viewing can be arranged by contacting Helena Gerber or Lelani Mackintosh of Art on Queen or call 082 657 4122.
