La Motte Art
This was a last chance to see a fabulous exhibition of contemporary tapestries, Threads of Synergy. Artists included the South African “greats”, such as Kentridge, Skotnes and Hodgins, made by the Stephens Tapestry Studio in Diepsloot (Joburg) and Piggs Peak (Swaziland).
We also had a tour of the Pierneef gallery, full of his work at various stages of his career, as well as furniture, textiles and ceramics inspired by his work.
Our tour was organised, curated and led by Elzette de Beer who is La Motte’s full-time curator and is passionate about museums (she is the Western Cape Chair of the South African Museums Association).
