Art from South Africa

Wednesday 24 May 2023
Thanks to excellent support and sponsorship from the 150th anniversary of Rindal Sparebank, I have had the opportunity to invite an artist from all the way from South Africa as this year’s guest artist during the traditional Summer Exhibition here at Dalalåven Atelier during Kulturvøkku here in Rindal.
I have to admit that I think this is really cool!
The amazing Ronald West from Cape Town will now have his FIRST exhibition in Europe, a little special – and very fun – that it is in little Rindal!
West is – like me – a full-time artist and has had many sold-out art exhibitions around South Africa. Among other things, he has participated in the two largest art festivals in the country, where there are over 100,000 visitors daily for over a week.
As artists, we have different styles and expressions, while people, cats and colors are a consistent theme in the art of both of us. Ronald uses humor, body language and settings that make you smile when you look at his pictures. Feel free to check out his art on Facebook; The Ronald West Gallery
I was incredibly happy when Ronald agreed to come here, and I am VERY excited to exhibit with him. I can guarantee that this will be a colorful exhibition with pictures of all sizes and I really recommend making time to stop by this week for a unique experience.
There will be an opening with a red carpet on Saturday 1 July at 1pm.
The exhibition is open from 11am to 5pm every day during Kulturvøkku.
With the exception of Saturday 8 July when it will be 10-16 due to Market Day The last opening day will be Sunday 9 July
