April 2014 diary
A hint of cold starts making its way into the air, the ground is covered with a blanket of rustling leaves and out comes the boots and layers. But before hibernation sets in properly, here are the latest exhibitions, feasts, wine tastings and events.
A simple house, a river at your door to take you to the sea: the perfect recipe for holidaying ever after. Relaxing on the tucked-away wooden deck overlooking the Piesang River, it’s hard to believe that you’re in the heart of Plettenberg Bay.
Mermaids are mystical
Lucinda Mudge’s new body of handmade coil vases is showing until 20 May at The Gallery at Grande Provence, Franschhoek.
Craft love, not war
“Is there design this good that doesn’t kill people?” asked the US magazine Good a few years ago about the AK47. With some 200 wire-and-bead handcrafted AK47s in tow, South African filmmaker-turned-artist Ralph Ziman opens his first solo exhibition in CT.
Picks of the Week
With the long weekend over, the team get you back on track by gearing up for winter with picks ranging from funky wellies to a tea cup slingshot. Manmade clouds, a balloon chair, a bespoke 1968 Porsche 912 and jelly crockery also form a part of the mix.
Print as performance
Tonight, Thursday 17 April from 5pm to 9pm, Warren Editions are breaking the mold with a "live print performance". Working from a live webcam feed, artist Katherine Bull's autographic drawings will be translated into print by a team of printmakers.
