After a three-year break since her last exhibition, Louise van Niekerk’s new exhibition The Other Side opens at Aladdin’s-de-Light in Nottingham Road tomorrow (November 16).

The exhibition of new works will consist of Raku, porcelain and ceramic sculpture.

To quote from Ben Temkin’s speech at the opening of van Niekerk’s exhibition at the Tatham Gallery: “I have known and appreciated her art for some five years. I have regularly been surprised and delighted with her work. Louise has the talent to transform pots into art.”

The opening will coincide with a fundraiser for the SPCA. Pottery, mosaic and quilting workshops will run alongside demonstrations of leatherwork and horse shoe making by a farrier. A R50 donation to the SPCA gives patrons access to the braai fires which will be lit at 12 noon and there will be salad, pap and sauce tables.

Live music by the legendary Steve Fataar as well as the young and talented Greg Kentgens will add to the ambience. The Nottingham Brewing Company and The Wine Cellar from Rosetta will be on hand to encourage everyone’s good spirits!

The Other Side will run until December 31. For more information contact Aladdins on 033 266 6460 or
