    The Fine Ounce Collective presented its first international show at the Omba Gallery in Windhoek, Namibia, running from 30 June to 9 July 2014. The venue (a beautifully restored and rustic industrial warehouse) was aptly suited to present the 120 pieces on display – all relating specifically to the theme Between the Lines. The exhibition drew many, many visitors (including the wife of the German ambassador to Namibia) and resulted in quite an interest from various media houses. Two of the Fine Ounce members (Frieda Lühl and Angela Tölken) gave 3 radio interviews between the two of them, one of them an hour long at the German radio station.
    Newspapers also brought some clippings, and Angela was featured in a longer expose in the German daily newspaper:

    The show in Windhoek has been the most successful Fine Ounce exhibition yet, and it is scheduled to travel to Johannesburg where it will be on display at the Liz Loubser Gallery from 23 August to early September. For the Fine Ounce fans in Gauteng this will be an unique opportunity to view the widely varied, once-off pieces from the 8 members of the collective.
