Bell, Wilma Cruise, Guy Du Toit, Llewellyn Davies, William
Kentridge, Judith Mason, Hylton Nel, Simon Stone, Robert
Hodgins and Andrew Verster.
We are pleased to announce that
we are opening Guy du Toit’s Talking Hares
exhibition this Saturday 3rd November 2012. The show will
run until Easter 2013. Guy, one of South Africa’s
most accomplished sculptors, uses a wide range of mediums.
Talking Hares is in bronze.
Beguiling in their simplicity
the hares draw your attention as surely as the moon waxes
and wanes. Seen as a trickster figure in world mythologies,
hare is a catalyst for change, weaving established opposites
together to morph into something new. Guy has achieved a
sense of freshness using an ancient symbol - something old
yet somehow new.
Come and spend a weekend in the
country and enjoy Guy’s Hares in situ.
