THE Margate Art Museum was filled with art lovers who came to view paintings by Madeline Antrobus of the South Coast.

Antrobus’s work stirred much reaction as art lovers said how the paintings spoke to them and displayed a breath of fresh air.

“They’re all colourful even the black and white ones jump out their canvas and lift your spirit,” said one guest.

Antrobus said through her paintings she sends a message from the universe.

“You always have to be positive, the universe does not understand negativity because it just throws it back in your face.”

As part of the entertainment, Antrobus­’s 37-year-old daughter Lizelle­ Bothma sang and told how strict her mother was when she was growing up.

Guests enjoyed the stories Antrobus shared about her late husband, Rooi Antrobus, a well known South Coast deejay, saying how much of an inspiration he was to her and her children.

Antrobus says it is her belief in God that got her through the tough time she went through when she lost Rooi.

“You just give it to God and he’ll sort it out.”

The guest were relaxed and very interested in the art as they browsed through the exhibition with wine and snacks.
