Tuesday 16 September – Saturday 27 September, 10 am
Irma Stern Museum, Rondebosch
Cape Town artist John Kramer is holding his first solo exhibition in 25 years.
His book, John Kramer, published by the Penny Dobbie Gallery, will also be launched with the exhibition.
John is well known for his realistic paintings of small town shops and algemene handelaars – a project which he has been pursuing since the early 1970s, when he first realised that these ‘ordinary’ buildings were disappearing and being replaced with supermarkets.
John has travelled extensively looking for subject matter, visiting many small towns to photograph the buildings he loves to paint. He has built up a huge archive of source material in the process, much of it reflecting small-town South Africa.
