The late and much-loved visual artist Aidan Walsh will be remembered at tomorrow night’s (Monday, June 2) Mondays @ Six at St Clements programme.

“One quarter French, three quarters Irish and one hundred percent South African!” is how Walsh described himself. “My nomadic, sometimes displaced, often sad, usually optimistic family, found themselves in the Karoo. I was born in Durban in the final stages of the Great Depression, to the sound of coins being dropped into tins and the words and music of ‘brother can you spare a dime?’”

Rick Andrew, Pieter Scholtz and Andrew Verster reminisce about Aidan Walsh

Andrew and Scholtz will also read from a play titled Cloudcuckooland inspired by the idea of creating and living in a tree house.

St Clements is situated at 191 Musgrave Road. Mondays at Six run between 18h00 and 19h00. Booking is advised on 031 202 2511. There is no cover charge but there is a donations box to support presenters.
