After the huge success and reputation of more than two decades of her much anticipated, end-of-the-year Art Salons, this year noted Cape Town art dealer and curator, Rose Korber, looks, with some nostalgia, at the works - both vintage and current - of a nucleus of artists, who have appeared on these shows since 1992. Summer Show 2012-13 is an overview of the current state of South African art featuring paintings, mixed media works, original limited-edition prints, photography, sculpture, ceramics and contemporary Shangaan beadwork.
Because of the continuous flow, over the past six weeks, of both local and international art lovers and investors - keen to view and acquire quality South African art - the exhibition has been extended to the 28 February 2013. Gallery hours are daily 10am to 6pm, including weekends and public holidays.
Rose Korber states that: 'Over this 20-year period, many of the artists have attained international prominence, and their works are to be found in a number of the world's most prestigious art galleries and museums. New artists of note have also come on board during this period, adding to the richness and diversity of the works on show.'
Summer Show 2012-13 artists include: William Kentridge, Sam Nhlengethwa, Willie Bester, Robert Hodgins, Simon Stone, Robert Slingsby, Richard Smith, Paul du Toit, JP Meyer, John Kramer, Anthony Lane, Deborah Bell, Diane Victor, Claudette Schreuders, Pamela Stretton, Penelope Stutterheime, Wendy Anziska, Maja Maljevic, Cynthia Villet, Georgia Lane and Claire Gavronsky.
Photographers of note are Stephen Inggs, Dale Yudelman (prize-winning i-phone photographs from his recent publication, Life under Democracy) and 81-year old Jurgen Schadeberg, whose iconic photographs of black/white South Africa span the period from the 1950s to the present.
Recent works by celebrated ceramists include Ian Garret, Louise Gelderblom, Hennie Meyer, Helen Vaughan, Wiebke von Bismarck, Ralph Johson, Laura du Toit, Patsy Groll, Melanie Hillebrand, Kendal Warren and Carolyn Heydenrych.
