“Mosterd na die Maal” is a group exhibition at the White River Gallery. It already opens on June 13, and the closing event will be on June 30 at 12:00.
This exhibition explores the nuances of mealtimes, the sharing of meals, and the emotions that we attach to these occasions. Family rituals, the act of saying grace and human postures around meals are some of the themes explored by the artists.
Participating artists are Eric Eatwell, Rene Eloff, Michael Heyns, Mariana Zwaan, Laurel Holmes, James de Villiers, Gerrie van Tonder, Erica Schoeman and Griet van der Meulen.
Hennie Fisher, the closing speaker at the event, has completed his doctoral research in the development of a food literacy measuring instrument for South Africa.
Oscar-nominated film Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully oil-painted animation feature film. A young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his final days. Each of the film’s 65 000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of 125 painters.
