Come Look! An Open Printmaking Workshop with 32 Artists at the AVA Gallery

AVA Open Printmaking Workshop

Morne Visage

 

From 4 June to 30 July 2015 the AVA in partnership with Strauss & Co and Business and Art South Africa are turning the gallery into an open studio where over 32 artists and 7 printmaking specialists will work together to produce a series of unique, handmade prints. The line-up of artists, ranging from emerging to more established, is what makes this workshop so exciting. Participating artists include Mohau Modisakeng, Dan Halter, Laura Windvogel, Roderick Sauls, Katherine Bull, Chloe Reid, Olivié Keck, Georgina Gratrix, Richard Mudariki, Tess Metcalf, Elize de Beer, Andrew Turpin, Mia Chaplin, Vulindlela Nyoni, Jared Ginsburg, Ian Grose, and Kerry Chaloner, to name a bit more than a few.

 

Each of the artists works closely with a trained printmaker in a new medium, one which they haven’t necessarily explored before. So far, working in this way has resulted in interesting, fresh work. For the duration of this project the gallery remains open and invites the public to come see the artists work in an atelier style studio environment. The finished works will be hung on a washing line inside the gallery too, which will be curated by emerging and established local curators. If you’re in town, this one is definitely worth a look-see.

 

Focussing on print and paper, the open studio will run concurrently with Strauss & Co’s online art auction from 13 – 27 July 2015. Browse the works and place your bid here.

 

Visit the AVA at 35 Church Street, Cape Town.

Open from Monday to Friday from 10am – 5pm, and Saturdays from 10am – 1pm.
