This exhibition ‘Whispers from the Lilypond / Fluisteringe vanaf n Lelie poel ‘ is the first platform for a series, that reflects on rebirth through water, water spirits, and Nymphaea (water lilies).
The body of works is mapped, woven, stitched and dressed to awaken the Nymphaea from a deep hibernation to play and dance with the water deities.
“My memories of water and lilies (from childhood to present day) drove my practice conceptually as I found myself spending days in the Stellenbosch Botanical Gardens. This initiated painterly and drawing based experiments and research – in essence, it served to manifest my lilies and water spirit through documenting my thoughts as they are mirrored back to me on the watery reflections.” – Shany van den Berg.
This exhibition will be opened with a performance by the artist.
Please join us for the opening of “Whispers from the Lily Pond” at 11h00 at Everard Read Franschhoek.
Gallery hours: 9:30 – 17:30
For more information please contact Karla Benade at (021) 876 2446 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Spring is here and what better time to embrace this cheerful season in all its finery than at this year’s Franschhoek Uncorked Festival, which takes place over the weekend of 15 and 16 September. Discover a plethora of experiences as you travel from one estate to the next sampling fabulous new release wines on offer.
As part of our Nelson Mandela Day activities, Franschhoek Wine Valley visited 3 creches in Groendal with cupcakes, juice & fruit. This being a small token of our appreciation to the teachers and to spread a bit more of the Madiba Magic.

Well done Bradley!
