Arts Interactive is an interactive group/gathering of those interested in the betterment of the visual arts which takes place on the second Wednesday of every month.

The guest artist on March 13 will be well-known artist/sculptor, Barbara Siedle.

Art - be it painting, sculpture or any other form - is far more than just a superficial image. It is essentially an extension of self. Each work reflects the artist, their inner being and the world of which they are a part.

World War II had huge impact, not only with the physical devastation but also the consequential emotional and spiritual repercussions, as reflected largely through the arts.

Barbara Siedle will be looking at the work of the Italian artist, Marino Marini (1901-1980), particularly his Horse and Rider series, where his sensitive and sensuous exploration of the surface textures make his bronze sculptures so remarkable. This well-illustrated talk about a fascinating artist is highly recommended.

Arts Interactive takes place on March 13 at 18h00 for 18h30 at the Hellenic Hall, Browns Drift in Durban North in the pub area – Eat Greek. Entry R60/head includes a meal provided by Eat Greek. Drinks can be purchased and there is secure parking.
