THE public is invited to join the exhibition at the Artists’ Gallery in Ramsgate on Friday night.

Barbie Meyer of Artist’s Gallery said they are a collective of artists awho decided to have an opening exhibition showcasing the work of Stellenbosch lecturer and metal art jewellery designer Gela Tolken.

“Gela Tolken will be coming up from the Cape to hang her pieces and be at the opening itself,” said Meyer.

Artists’ Gallery is a quirky yet contemporary art gallery nestled in the heart of Ramsgate, wedged in between two landmarks; the Lobster Pot and the Crayfish Inn.

“This gallery is unique in the fact that is a ‘living space’ where a collective of eight top South African artists have come together to exhibit, paint, sculpt and interact with their customers and numerous other artists from all genres,” she said.

Meyer said the artists include, metal art jeweller Gela Tölken, painter Rob Wareing, painter Coral Spencer, sculptor, art photographer Marke Meyer, painter Diane Erasmus, sculptor Michael Canadas and master painter Anton Benzon .

Tolken will be at the opening on Friday 25 September. The exhibition will start at 4.30pm. Entrance is free and all are welcome. - Supplied
