Artists of the South are holding their Christmas exhibition in the Simon’s Town Library hall from Friday 14 to Thursday 20 December­.

The exhibition will be open from 10:00 to 16:00 daily and there will be a large selection of very affordable paintings and wood carvings by local artists.

Artists of the South are an exhibition group founded in 2008 which is completely independent of any art society. They hold biannual exhibitions in the Simon’s Town community hall. The idea is to try and provide a regular exhibition opportunity for artists who have a prolific output, as well as those who only produce a small number of quality paintings each year.

Founder of the group, Pauline Fine, says: “We aim to keep the exhibition to a high standard to attract revenue worth visiting. We are a non-profit organisation and support various local charities. Our charity this year is Anchors Away Village. This is an NPO organisation run by Fran Spencer-Smith and provides Havens of Hope homes for the intellectually challenged,” she says.

They have eight permanent artists: Ray Potter, Estelle Byrne, Ann Buckby, Josje Barnard, Angela Stannard, Pauline Fine, Melanie Meyer and Ruth (Rufus) Nolan­. A selection of some of the work can be viewed on Facebook: Artists of the South. Join them to meet the artists at noon on Saturday 15 December for drinks and snacks.

There is always a wide variety of affordable artwork on show and original woodcarvings by Zimbabwean artist Godfrey Chimhanzi. They invite seven different local guest artists to each exhibition­.
