Cronje Lemmer
Collagraphs

18 May to 8 June 2024

 
As fashion designer and artist Cronjé Lemmer learned early on to spot the exceptional in the ordinary. He has made a name for himself both locally and internationally as collagrapher.  This art form is a printmaking process in which materials are glued or sealed to a rigid substrate (such as paperboard or wood) to create a plate.  The exhibition clearly illustrates his growth as artist and human being. 

Furthermore, on Saturday 25 May 2024 at 11:00 in the same venue his book Uit ‘Die Huis van Cronjé Lemmer’:  ‘n collage van kuns, klere en kletspraatjies will be launched.

Ohara School of lkebana South Africa celebrates 45 years of existence
28 and 29 June 2024
 
The Ohara School of Ikebana strives to promote the Japanese art of flower arrangement in South Africa.  Although lkebana is steeped in the traditions of Japanese art, it is not static, and traditional teaching does not prevent it from being dynamic.  The Ohara School of lkebana emphasizes seasonal qualities, natural growth processes and the beauty of the natural environment revealing balance, harmony and simplicity.
 
On Friday, 28 June and Saturday, 29 June 2024 the school will have an exhibition at the Association of Arts Pretoria to celebrate their 45th year as an lkebana Chapter.  Members will exhibit different lkebana styles to give viewers an insight into the art of lkebana. 
 
The exhibition will be opened by the ambassador of Japan to South Africa, Mr. Shigeru Ushio, on Friday, 28 June 2024 at 11:00.

Hendrien Horn
Embellished

18 May to 8 June 2024


Hendrien Horn’s life took a nasty turn when she finally grasped that she had pushed her body too far.  A chest injury from overworking on her pottery wheel in 2019 halted Hendrien’s work abruptly.  Being unable to create hand-made pottery works at the time, she pushed herself to explore other artistic avenues.
 
As an artist, Hendrien slowly started to change her perceived perception about technology and how it can be used to create art.  The clay 3D printer, much like the pottery wheel, is a tool to fashion forms that explore clay in its purest form.  She taught herself to use 3D design software.  Working from her pottery studio in Pretoria, Hendrien now gives workshops and talks and hosts numerous courses for beginner potters and 3D clay makers online. 
 
Hendrien is the first contemporary clay 3D printing artist in South Africa and has participated in numerous group exhibitions around the country.  The use of technology in art can easily be seen as mass production. Hendrien has become unapologetic when it comes to her art and no longer feels the need to embellish her artistic processes.  Her clay coil lines are left bare showcasing the intentionality behind her design decisions inviting the viewer to form their own opinion.  The title of her exhibition is Embellished. 
 
Her book Let’s Clay 3D Print! A Guidebook will be launched at the end of May 2024, featuring clay 3D printing artists and industry experts from around the world.
