Since 1994, Art of Africa has annually presented two large mixed group exhibitions, in May/June and November at Fillingdon Farm, and is open by appointment for the remainder of the year. Each exhibition opens on a Saturday and runs for nine days until the end of the following Sunday, from 10am – 5pm.
Every exhibition is a combination of work by both new and familiar artists, with two common threads. Firstly, each artist has a link with Africa; most live there, but some travel out to paint or sculpt. Secondly, all work is original handcraft, made where possible from the natural materials for which Africa is famed; stone, silver, cotton, clay, wood, mohair, leather etc.”
I was going to post some photos of Bo Kaap, with its brightly coloured buildings, windy one way cobbled streets (shame I can’t take pictures of the scent of spices and lunches being cooked on this Windy Winter day) , but I forgot the memory card for my camera. But being home earlier meant I was literally reminded of this universal truth!
