Great Brak River brings its art to Georgians
Friends of the George Museum has kept its promise that they would bring a new top quality art exhibition to George citizens each month during 2018, says Abrie de Swardt, chairman of the organisation. "We have recently opened our 11th exhibition. This month we are happy to be associated with the artist group of Great Brak River, whose 21 members have a mind-blowing collection of great pieces in the art gallery of the museum."
The convener of the event is Lynda Murison, an art dynamo who paints, teaches, mentors and organises art events in her village. This is the first time she brings such a large event to the art mecca of the region.
Murison is a well-trained artist whose works cover all genres. She is backed up by the well-known Chris Spies, whose work sells nationwide. Spies has a following from as far away as Namibia who are avid collectors of his gems.
If you want to see a truly colourful display of skill, this is your opportunity. Marjorie Smit, an ex-art school teacher who used to live in George and was active as estate agent as well as raising funds for Cansa, retired to Great Brak River where she became more serious about her art. Her works on display demonstrate a new and satisfying freedom of expression. Her presentation covers portraiture, landscape and still life.
The works of the remaining 18 members of this group are equally awe-inspiring. Spend an hour or two at the museum - it's worth it.
The exhibition will run for the full month of November. Entrance is free and all are welcome.
