As you can probably tell by the above photo of a rather mischievous looking group sculpture birds, the Michaelis School of Fine Art now presents the 2009 Graduate Exhibition which will be featuring final year work by the Honours and finishing Masters students, including the likes of Jano January one of our avid blog readers and good mates. Over the past couple of years the annual exhibition has become a highly anticipated event in the Cape Town arts calendar.
Once again this year promises not to disappoint with a diverse and innovative selection of painting, sculpture, new media, print and photographic works from some of the most gifted students at one of the country’s top art schools- if not the top school.
The exhibition opening looks to be a memorable one with an opening address by Riason Naidoo, the Director of the Iziko South African National Gallery. A stunning catalogue will also be available to accompany the work and refreshments will be served.
