Drawingrooms is your chance to turn your home into an art gallery for one night!

All the money from the pledges will go into a “pot” and one lucky attendee’s name will be drawn at the end of the night. That person will get to select one piece of art, or a collection of art works, to a guaranteed minimum value of R4 000 (total amount from pledges). Once the pledge target has been reached and the event is confirmed more tickets will be made available and that money will also be added to the total. The draw will take place at 21:00 and should the person who’s name is drawn not be present, they will forfeit their chance and another name will be drawn.

 

Works on display will be available for sale. If all pieces are sold out by 21:00 the winner will have the opportunity to commission a work from the artist to the value of the money in the “pot”.

GUNS & RAIN

Guns & Rain is a curated online gallery of work by contemporary fine artists from southern Africa, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana. Most of the artists are young and emerging, but some of them are already established. You can order your art online and have it delivered anywhere in the world, but you can also come see art in the flesh, right here in Johannesburg.

 

BEVAN DE WET

This Drawingroom showcases both new and previously-unseen early work Bevan de Wet, who recently returned from a residency with the Sylt Foundation in Germany.

 

History, identity, hybridity and belonging are central themes in the printmaking of Bevan de Wet. His art is a deconstructive archaeology of the dichotomy between the civilized self and the instinctive, untamed self, not only in human forms but also explored in objects, artifacts, fragments and tools. Often arranged and displayed as collected items, these present sometimes false and non-linear historical trajectories. This fractured imagery also speaks to notions of displacement and belonging, evoking a sense of unease and disconnectedness which is particularly relevant to his own cultural history as a white South African. De Wet studied Fine Art at Rhodes University, has worked with artists Gerhard Marx, Walter Oltmann and William Kentridge, and has exhibited extensively both in South Africa and internationally.
