PAPER II - Circle Art Gallery, 24 November – 23 December 2015
Circle Art’s Paper exhibition returns for the second time on November 24 – December 23, 2015 with an opening reception on November 24 at 6:00pm.
The group exhibition dubbed ‘Paper II’ presents over 50 works on paper in all their variety from drawings, prints, photographs, collage, sculpture and installation. It follows the success of the first and unique Circle paper exhibition held in Kenya on March 2014 showcasing 40 works. The intention of the exhibition is to expose a wider range of artists and to attract new collectors.
Attracting works from a group of San printmakers from the Kalahari, Botswana for the first time in Kenya, the exhibition brings together carefully curated and thought-provoking artwork from emerging and established artists.
Commenting on the exhibition, Danda Jaroljmek, Director Circle Art Agency says,“This is the first time that we have received such varied works from emerging artists who are really experimenting with new media and concepts, which is very exciting to witness.” Among modern and contemporary artists featured in the show include: Sane Wadu, Peterson Kamwathi, Beatrice Wanjiku, Ephrem Solomon, Patrick Mukabi, Eltayeb Dawelbait, Yony Waite, Sibylla Martin and Nadir Tharani. Their interesting works estimates range from Ksh 10,000 to Ksh 300,000 making it accessible to new buyers and established collectors of art.
Over 60 artists participating represent Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Sudan, Botswana and Namibia showcasing over 100 works on paper.
