ArtReach Chapter 2
Earlyn Cloud and Denver Jansen
In April we publicly launched the ArtReach Western Cape programme, generously supported by the National Lotteries Commission and PGWC-DCAS, which serves to empower artists who don’t live in urban centres, whilst simultaneously enriching the visual landscape for gallery visitors. Promising artists residing in the areas of Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, Worcester and Robertson are each given the opportunity to showcase their work in a solo exhibition at the AVA Mezzanine Gallery as part of the annual exhibition programme (2018).
Opening Chapter 2 in the series are artists Earlyn Cloud and Denver Jansen from Oudtshoorn. Earlyn and Denver will be showcasing a series of pencil drawings in their signature photorealistic styles, as well as new works made during their workshops with artists Rory Emmett and Kilmany-Jo Liversage in Cape Town this month.
