Jonel Scholtz – "This LoVe" - NWU Botanical Garden Gallery, Potchefstroom Campus
In this exhibition, Jonel is trying to understand the Love emotion. She came to the conclusion that this emotion is not something to understand but rather an emotion that you do not control. It is an experience and only those who are brave enough may experience it. She takes you through the different loves that she has experienced over the last two years. They are transmitted through her brush into the painting. For Jonel, love is a strong and sometimes fatal emotion.
Gordon Froud – Harmonia: Sacred Geometry, the pattern of existence - NWU Main Gallery (Building E7), Potchefstroom Campus
After a successful run at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum, Gordon Froud's Harmonia exhibition is welcomed at the NWU Gallery. Well known for his geometrical star coned shaped artworks, Gordon extends his work into the shape of drawing, printmaking, embossing, and digital imaging. His works refer to the landscape, cityscape, in the human form as well as the spirit. Geometric shapes are found everywhere, this is evident in Gordon's exhibition as he makes note of the use of different geometrical shapes from the belief systems such as the Muslims, Judeao-Christian, even the ancient Egyptian and Mayan temples.
