Artists’ collaboration

2011-03-10 00:00

THREE artists — Maggie Strachan, Joan Martin and Lara Mellon — will be showing their work in an exhibition titled Two Goats and a Dog, until March 26 at Fat Tuesday, Bellevue Campus in Bellevue Road, Kloof.

The title of this exhibition refers to the way in which all three artists have enjoyed the quirky nature of the domestic animals that have inhabited and still inhabit their familiar spaces. Mellon grew up on a farm and was familiar with goats, chickens and all sorts of domesticated farm animals; while Strachan and Martin both love and overindulge cats in their homes.

Each artist retains identifiable characteristics that mark their personal style, whether it is Mellon’s love of landscape and texture, Strachan’s keenly observed and meticulous rendition of forms or Martin’s obsession with surface decoration and layering.

Clinical social worker, Estelle Hudson, will conduct a walkabout and discussion of the artworks on Saturday, from 10.30 am.
