Delta & Desert Exhibition Feedback

The National Arts Festival 2013 has come and gone and the good people of Grahamstown are now in the process of recovery!

It was a great festival and though I am in a complete state of exhaustion, I am very happy that everything went off so well. Hundreds of people came through my exhibition Delta & Desert: Journeys into the Wilderness, and I was overwhelmed by the positive feedback and support for my work, and thrilled to have sold as much as I did, given the tough economic climate.

The rhino have definitely benefited from the enthusiastic response I received and I am about to deposit a healthy sum of money into the Chipembere Rhino Foundation, which was raised from the sale of Harry Owen’s poetry anthology, For Rhino in a Shrinking World, as well as from the sale of numerous cards and prints of the illustrations.

So, thank you to everyone who helped to make the exhibition such a success, especially my family and friends who gave me so much support and helped in so many ways. I could never have done this without you.

For those of you who were not able to be there, here are a few photographs of the exhibition:

So that’s the festival done, now time to relax and plan where to from here.

In my next post I will be chatting about¬† my work In Memoriam and the presentation I gave at the LAWS Conference, that was held at Rhodes University during the National Arts Festival. Stay tuned, there’s lots more to come…!
