ARDMORE CERAMIC ART will be showcasing its colourful work at the In Full Colour – David Walters and Friends Exhibition at the William Humphreys Art Gallery in Cullinan Crescent, Kimberley.

The exhibition opens on 13 July and runs until 12 August.

The unusual and quirky designs that characterise the pieces of Ardmore – the necks of giraffes that become handles for jugs, vases and tureens, Zulu figures riding hippos and birds and complex floral decoration – will be on show.

Among the artists exhibiting at the show will be Hennie Meyer, Clementina van der Walt, Digby Hoets, Ann Marais, Yogi de Beer, Sarah Walters Christo Giles, Melanie Hillebrand and organiser, Franschhoek-based potter David Walters.

Speaking about the exhibition, Walters said:

“I have invited 94 different potters from all over South Africa to take part in this year’s In Full Colour exhibition. This means that most of them will send something.

“The fact is that not all exhibition titles suit all of us as potters – some may think that their work is not colourful enough, or they may have other things to do. But I can tell you that most of them will exhibit, and it will be a stunning show.

“The idea is, of course, that the colourful title will bring upbeat and colourful exhibits to our show and fill everybody with vibrancy and joy. There is no reason for gloom in all our communities, and some colour will do us all good.”

Walters added: “It is seldom that an art gallery of the magnitude of the William Humphreys has the inspiration and the boldness to hold a fully ceramics show and this will be the 14th annual ceramics show that they have held.”

  • The William Humphreys Art Gallery is open Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 16:45, Saturdays from 10:00 to 16:45 and Sundays and public holidays from 09:00 to 11:45. For more information on the exhibition and the artists, direct enquiries to 053-831-1724/5 or email info@whag.co.za.
