(“Sleeping Dalmatian” by Theo Vorster)

Limited edition hand-coloured, lino-cut prints by Cape Town artist Theo Vorster and selected ceramics by invited Kwa-Zulu Natal potters are the focus of an exhibition opening at Florida Road’s Artisan Contemporary Gallery next week.

“Vorster has added yet another dimension to the three-dimensional feel of lino-cuts”, said Artisan curator Sue Greenberg. “After hand printing on 300gsm 50% cotton paper, he then painstakingly hand-colours his work in acrylic to produce striking end results.”

Adding yet another dimension to this exhibition are ceramics by no less than 10 well-known Kwa-Zulu Natal artists.

These range from decorative works by Martha Zettler, Barry Dibb, Lynette Morris Hale and Carol Tullidge and the sculptural pieces of Clive Sithole, Elizabeth Balcomb, Carol Hayward Fell and Wendy Von Varendorf to the functional work of Corrie Hook, Catherine Brennon and Anne Schultz.

The exhibition opens at Artisan Contemporary Gallery on July 27 at 18h00 and runs through to mid-August. Artisan Contemporary Gallery is situated at 344 Florida Road. More information on 031 312 4364 or 083 301 5747, email: or visit
