Some of our members (Richard, Ken and Liz) have been lucky enough to see the Pierneef exhibition currently on at the Standard Bank Art Gallery, Johannesburg until September 12. Pierneef is certainly one of our greatest artists, and is famed for his empty bushveld landscapes. His work will appeal to all those who live in and love the wide spaces we enjoy in the Waterberg.
On a personal note I recall arriving in South Africa as a child many years ago, disembarking at Johannesburg’s Park Station, and being overwhelmed by the magnificent Pierneef panels in the Station. Four of these panels are included in the exhibition.
