/ About Us

ASSOCIATION OF ARTS PRETORIA

 
Where art comes alive. Welcome to our Association. This is the prime platform for you to catch up on happenings in the art-world. We get excited by promoting young artists and revelling in the work of more established ones. Our regular exhibitions showcase classic and contemporary pieces, creating a space for the enjoyment of art and a cross-pollination of creative thought. As mavericks, we like to shake things up and break the mould (while having great respect for traditionalists). We exhibit only the finest and often thought-provoking works.
 
BECOME A MEMBER
Join the Association of Arts - Pretoria as a member today. You don’t have to be an art expert or artist – as long as you love the visual arts. Celebrate with us as we blaze trails for new and established artists.
 

  


/ How To

Care for your prints

Bright daylight and even bright artificial light can cause colours to fade and papers to discolour and become brittle. Too much light is harmful even when ultraviolet rays are filtered out; so make sure your print is exposed to moderate light for limited hours at a time.

Care for your bronze sculpture

A properly produced, bronze sculpture will require very little care and maintenance, particularly if it resides indoors and in a controlled environment.

Care for your jewellery

A jeweller’s creation is assembled with great care and patience mixed with artful inspiration. When it is completed, a jeweller will pass on the piece to be cared for by its intended owner with the hope that it may last forever.

Music recitals

SURROUND SIGHT AND SOUND
 
Pretoria citizens are privileged.  The Association of Arts Pretoria has launched the most exciting endeavour.  Having acquired a brand new grand piano, classical concerts are now being regularly presented on the first Thursday of every month at 19h00 and every third Wednesday of the month at 12h00.
 
Not only piano solos will be heard.   This grand instrument will also accompany flautists, cellists, violinists, singers etc.  Professional, well- established artists will perform in the evenings, whereas the brightest music students – future stars – will perform at lunchtime.
 
Although an art gallery as venue for recitals is not entirely unique, it certainly is the case locally. How wonderful to be surrounded by visual art while listening to aural or musical art.  These are sensual and emotional experiences where different art forms are engaged in dialogue.
 
Tickets are available only at the door and sell at a mere R100,00 for the evening concerts and R50,00 for the lunchtime concerts – less than the average CD or DVD – and nothing is as satisfying as a live performance.  However, booking is essential because only 60 audience members can be seated. 

Be sure to phone either Pieter or Nandi on 012 346 3100 or send an email to artspta@mweb.co.za
