Welgemeend Art Month 2018
This year’s theme is:
A Selection of Works showcasing South African Women Artists of the Past 100 Years
It promises to be a feast for the eye and food for the soul as we celebrate women and women artist’s throughout the years.
A selection of art from the private collection of Frank and Lizelle Kilbourn, will be exhibited for the entire month of August. A number of functions, lectures and viewing opportunities are part of the planned program.
As you may know, Welgemeend, an old manor house with a rich history is situated in the heart of Cape Town. It is here that the art collection and books of the South African poet and linguist known as Boerneef (late Prof IW van der Merwe) are housed. Welgemeend is owned and managed by Jan van Riebeeck Höerskool, in collaboration with the volunteer organisation Friends of Welgemeend who provide support and assistance with the preservation of the house and the Boerneef collection.
The Welgemeend/Boerneef art month in August is aimed at:
- Creating an awareness and promoting the cultural gem in our midst
- Making private collections available for public viewing
- Raising funds for necessary maintenance and restoration for Welgemeend.
