Strauss & Co has once again partnered with the AVA to support an exhibition, workshop and portfolio programme. The main gallery will play host to new works from the studios of Warren Editions, David Krut Workshops and SA Print Gallery that celebrate the techniques available to artists who work in the medium. There will be a printing press in residence that will be in action throughout the run.
Talks, walkabouts & performances are free, but to book and purchase tickets for the workshops (R350 pp, incl materials – limited to 10 people) go to: https://www.thundafund.com/
