Black is beautiful
Black is strong
Black is me and I love it!!
I went by this past weekend and it was truly the best use of my time. I enjoyed it and would happily recommend it to anyone. Below, some of the bits that best stood out for me.
Two weeks back I decided to check out the Wits Arts Museum (WAM) and they had an exhibition by Penny Siopsis and Peter Schutz. I much preferred Penny’s and thankfully we can take pictures (though flash is not allowed so excuse the quality of most). I love dolls so I greatly enjoyed the different installations she had that included them.
Wits Art Museum is proud to announce the exhibition, Time and Again showcasing a survey of the work of globally recognised South African artist, Penny Siopis. This exhibition reflects over three decades of Siopis’ creative production, and draws on the recurring themes of history, sexuality, race, memory, estrangement and violence. Many of the works on show were featured on her recent retrospective exhibition of the same title at the South African National Gallery in Cape Town.
If you are going to go, no food and drink is allowed in the Museum, Besides that, entry is free and they are open from Wednesday to Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and parking is readily available a few streets away. Also, on the first Saturday of every month, they have Art Classes between 12 and 1 for all levels of expertise.
A few weeks back, I decided to try and take pics to showcase my week so here goes!
Tuesday– messy desk at the end of the week. My staples, earphones and a cuppa tea
Wednesday – I had training in this room that had beautiful art work all around.
Thursday – I read through four books in those three weeks so I went to the Library for four more. Tihiii, it helps that they were heavily Chick Lit
Friday: I got some beautiful scented candles from Mr P home. They are set against a khanga I received as a gift when my sister got married. It now dabbles as a table cloth in the kitchen as a touch of home!
Saturday: I took my nephew to the Ditsong National Museum of National History in Pretoria CBD. We walked for almost 2.5h and he had such a blast. He is ten years old, loves animals and is learning about some of them at school and so it helped for him to see them in their natural habitat.
