Kalk Bay Modern- Bathini abuntu
The drive to Kalk Bay is always a pleasure, over Boyes drive, the panoramic view of Muizenberg, St James and Kalk bay harbour leaves me with an unexplained feeling of peacefulness- add to that a quick run-in to stock up on bread from Cafe Olympia bakery and then upstairs to a warm and inviting Kalk Bay Modern- this gallery must have the best view.
Cheryl's beautiful gallery was exhibiting vibrant works by Welcome Danca, Sibusisa Duma, Lalelani Mblele and Patrick Makumbe- also ceramics by Andile Dyalvane and photographs by Chris Ledochowski.
The exhibition was entitled 'What are the people saying?' and was opened by the talented and charming Peter Clarke.
I was especially taken with Welcome Danca's art, those solitary figures- what are they thinking?
The art teacher was impressed with Chris Ledochowski's photographs of the Cape Flats, Cheryl also has his impressive book on display.
