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”.

Morné Venter is a Pretoria-based artist and designer working primarily in ink and mixed media exploring the relationship between text and image in an experimental manner. He was born in Roodepoort in 1988 and completed a BA degree in Information Design at the University of Pretoria in 2010. Venter has participated in group exhibitions in Johannesburg and Pretoria and qualified as a finalist in the Sasol New Signatures 2015 competition. He is also the creator of a regular webcomic, Putdownness, which he started in 2012. Venter explores the ever-shifting interpretations of self-identity and human connection and his work is marked by an open-endedness that invites the viewer to impose their own experiences to create a personal and intimate connection.


Morné Venter’s one-night only solo exhibition, entitled ‘Speak in messes’ will include a variety of work exploring themes of identity, connection and relationships. The exhibition will also feature live portrait drawing.
