Present History II- at Photographers Gallery

If you missed Wednesday night at the Photographers gallery-  it was another wildly successful opening reception at this very special gallery.

Hundreds of  Cape Town's nicest people, impressive art, the inimitable Bruce Gordon as opening speaker and our favourite band, the fabulous Time Flies.

As Bruce Gordon so eloquently pronounced.... if Heidi puts her mind to it, there's not much she couldn't accomplish and in the last 10 years she has managed to establish a unique and successful gallery space with a stable of talented artists and a very loyal following........we're looking forward to the next ten years Heidi!
