    Group shows 2015: Grafen/Graven

    Posted by Angela & filed under Exhibitions, Group Shows.

    Staff members of the Visual Arts Department, Stellenbosch University, participated at the annual Woordfees by means of a group exhibition under the title Grafen/Graven, hosted by the Department’s Gallery GUS in Stellenbosch.

    The title had many possible interpretations and thus the provided works made for a wonderfully rich and varied exhibition.
