GEORGE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - The Friends of the George Museum has requested Scava (South Cape Association for Visual Arts) to continue their present competition exhibition until the end of May.
Scava, being an active member of the Friends of the George Museum, will hold its annual general meeting in the art gallery auditorium on Saturday 29 May. All Scava members are invited to attend.
"It has become apparent that great art is now the biggest draw card of the museum and at long last, the George population is pouring in to the Museum Art Gallery to have a peek. Several items have been sold and many are earmarked," said a pleased Scava chairperson, Maura St John.
Book for guided walkabout
The museum in toto will be refurbished soon and until then, anyone who has not visited the exhibition and everything else on exhibit in the building, should do so, as the doors will be closed for some months.
Until then, on Saturday mornings during May, a senior artist of the Scava group will conduct a walkabout of competition entries and anyone interested in learning a little about good artworks is invited to attend.
"Working artists would benefit greatly. There is only one proviso - you must book your place," said St John.
Covid-19 protocols are still in place and parties of only 12 people will be escorted in each group. Spaces are limited and organisers are working on a first-come-first-served basis.
RSVP to Maura St John on 083 485 4177.
Short interesting exhibition
Through membership of the Friends of the George Museum, many of George's cultural bodies are welcome to use the museum to conduct meetings, lecture sessions, entertainment events and more.
"Until the builders arrive insitu, Scava will utilise the additional time to mount an interesting short exhibition, this time featuring selected artists, their history and their work, aiming for the best of the best that our area has to offer. Many curators of art would call this type of exhibition a 'retrospective'. For Scava it will be a short, sharp selective exhibition and a surprise to all art lovers in George," says St John.
