Nests in the Clouds

After a brainstorming session between Patso Nicolov,  Hester Hattingh  , Hanlie Kotze and Maritsa Barlow  , we decided on an art exhibition with the theme: “Nests in the Clouds” at Gallery on Leviseur

Gallery on Leviseur is a contemporary art gallery in Dan Pienaar Rylaan in Bloemfontein. The very capable Gerhalda Nel took charge and orchestrated the exhibition in this clean beautiful space in Bloemfontein.     The exhibition dates:

Everybody jumped in and helped with deciding what to hang where and Edward did a perfect job with the hanging of the paintings.

We are the perfect combination, Hester creating atmospheric paintings and Maritsa taking the most beautiful photo’s of clouds.

Where Hester and Maritsa’s work is classic, the two sisters, Mariaan and Hanlie, create dreamlike narrative paintings packed with symbolism. 

What makes the exhibition unique is the fact that Hanlie and Mariaan are the sister’s children of Hester.
