The well established Rust-en-Vrede Art Gallery showcases works of art by established and emerging artists – and tonight Candice Dawn B will open an exhibition titled: ‘A little voodoo’.

If you’re ready for a fresh injection of art, diarise a look-see at the Durbanville gallery soon.
Candice describes her latest body of work:
‘The crows, Apostles …a history ‘paved with good intention’ and the translation and transmutation of the personality.
A brief overview of how I see the idiosyncrasies of the person using simple images of birds and other creatures to colour the portrayal.’ 

There are three exhibition spaces at Rust-en-Vrede. The main gallery consists of two rooms and are referred to as Salon A and Salon B. Salon C is in the entrance room, a more informal space used for small solo- or group exhibitions. Visitors to the opening tonight will get to see exciting new work by Patrick Mokhuane in Salon C.


Gallery Hours are Monday – Friday 09:00 – 17:00 and Saturday 09:00 – 13:00. ( The exhibitions change monthly and are freely open to the public.) Artists who wish to exhibit at Rust-en-Vrede are requested to submit work and a short proposal to the Gallery Management.

The members serving on this committee are nominated at the Annual General Meeting in August. They meet monthly to assess new applicants for exhibitions with the curator. Local artist, Theo P. Vorster, is the chairperson of the Gallery Management.
