The Gallery at Grande Provence is proud to present a group exhibition featuring Roxandra Dardagan Britz, Mona Craven, Estelle Marais, Sharlé Matthews, Diane McLean, Carl Roberts & André Roodt
Six of the artists studied fine art together at Rhodes University. Professor Marais was their first-year teacher. 1981, their year of enrolment, was an “interesting” time. Art was evolving from a formal orientation towards a socially relevant view and the political climate was fraught with the tensions of a civil war. 40 years have passed, each artist has explored and advanced their unique and different approach. Now, they are established and have works in collections throughout South Africa and across the world.
Recently, these artists wondered what homogeneity remains and what diversity has developed from their common origin. To explore this, the artists decided that it was time to exhibit together once again.
