ANTON KARSTEL 1995 – 2018 | 14 October 2018 to 3 March 2019 | North and South Galleries

Anton Karstel, Union Blues, oil on canvas

This mid-career exhibition showcases a selection of works from the artist's career since 1989. On show are many of Karstel's works that were produced during the political transition, circa 1994. The works produced in 1995 reflect the violence and political turbulence of the time. The exhibition also features installations and bodies of work that were produced in Cape Town after the artist relocated from Pretoria in 1998.

Enquiries: Dirk Oegema at  or 012 358 6747/50.

RAINFOREST ART SCHOOL | Until 3 February 2019 | East Gallery

Rainforest Art School is an exhibition that showcases a selection of works from the children that attended Katinka Gerber's art school in Arcadia over the past 23 years. The Rainforest Art School has a very intimate atmosphere where art is created in small groups. Nature plays a major role in Katinka Gerber's artistic presentation and forms part of her art education and her visual observation. She uses art elements that the children understand and relate to. As grown-ups we can never imitate the true sincere works of art that children create as they create within their own world. Through the spontaneous use of a variety of colours and lines, a unique balance is created.


Enquiries: Gerda Guldemond at or 012 358 6749.

Sandy Godwin, Vessel, porcelain

17TH-CENTURY DUTCH PAINTINGS - MICHAELIS BEQUEST | 11 December 2018 until 2 June 2019 |

Henry Preiss Hall

Jacob F Saeys, Scene at Palladian Villa, oil on canvas


A selection of 17th-century Dutch paintings from the Lady Michaelis Bequest is on view at the Pretoria Art Museum. The donation by Lady Michaelis – in the 1930s – of mainly 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings initially formed the core of the permanent collection of the Art Museum. They form an important point of reference from which the museum can approach the story of South African art as it unfolds from about the middle of the 19th century to the present day.
