10 Dec 2009-28 Feb 2010. This annual exhibition brings together the work of over 40 well-known and emerging South African artists. On display are ceramics, sculptures, glass works, bronzes, pieces of functional art and creative jewellery. Some pieces reflect the landscapes, scenes and people of South Africa while there are also abstract paintings, still lives and drawings.

The exhibition includes two new creations by the impressionist painter Kobus Louw, which recall the early works of artists such as Gregoire Boonzaaier, Piet van Heerden and Alexander Rose-Innes.

Kaffie Pretorius, who paints landscapes, animals and the West Coast, presents two oils entitled Women with Goats and Two Figures with Goats.

Dawid Botha displays Farm Wall Paarl District, one of his early oil paintings, done in 1946. He is famous for his street scenes in winter, which have become his trademark.
