The Schreiner Collection: A Recent Bequest
 
The Schreiner Gallery was named after them many years ago. Following Else’s death in August 2018, the Gallery received thirty two works from their collection as a bequest, some of which are on display here.
 
Else said there were no decisive factors in their collection habits, apart from fun. They often bought items because they were beautiful, affordable or made them laugh. Scattered throughout the house were portraits, etchings, watercolours, drawings, sculptures, ceramics and weavings. Each piece had a story, but their collection wasn’t planned.

WHITE RIVER - THE WHITE RIVER GALLERY
Genesis of a Garden
 
Mpumalanga’s White River Gallery is proud to showcase the work of this inspiring woman at a book launch and art exhibition on 2 March 2019 at 12 noon.
 
Elise’s coffee table book, ‘Genesis of a Garden’, contains wonderful anecdotes of the botanical garden’s first 12 years and a series of her nature studies. Recording her memoirs as the first botanist involved with the inception of the garden, Elise recalls with warmth and sincerity a personal account of the development of the gardens during the years 1969 to 1981.
 
The botanical art included in ‘Genesis of a Garden’ was produced over a 50-year period and captures South Africa’s national botanical heritage in a prolific and colourful display, true to the diverse abundance of South African flora.
 
Drawing on perspectives that reflect close detail, often against a backdrop of distant hills and plains, her paintings present an intensely informative view of species in their surroundings.
 
“When painting, I cannot separate myself from the miracle of life, especially plant life – their silent energy and their togetherness in a kind of competitive equilibrium,” says Elise.

BLOEMFONTEIN - OLIEWENHUIS ART MUSEUM
Light Conversations
 
The Art Museum Guides of Oliewenhuis Art Museum curated this exhibition with artworks sourced from the museum’s permanent collection. The curators resonated with rarely exhibited artworks from acclaimed artists such as Dumile Feni, Pippa Skotnes, Norman Catherine, Judy Woodborne and Lucas Sithole to convey a narrative that could be associated with the different emotions the emerging artist might experience.
 
 
 
The curators understand and experience the difficulties and doubt they address in Light Conversation, and subsequently chose to focus the exhibition on the journey of an artist. To focus on the creator of artworks and not his or her products is to invite a conversation about a topic that, though hardly ever discussed past the surface, is unexpectedly layered. Artists not only have to adapt to the challenges of life after university like their peers, but also experience the extra pressure of having no guaranteed employment in their field of study. They live with a different set of fears: that of failure to use their talents or a loss of artistic integrity should they decide to buy into success by masking their voice and vision to fit into trends in the art scene.
