Meeting Jack Lugg and Van Gogh

After a brief break to update the world on my artistic response to the ANC in the last posting, I return here to documenting my art reviews from the Herald, Port Elizabeth. (To view the articles, hold in shift and left click.)

It was quite a thing meeting my former art school head, Jack Lugg, some 30 years after we'd last met. He was a singular inspiration as painter, sculptor and draughtsman at the East London Technical College art department. This appeared on May 18, 2009. It continues below.

A picture of one of Jack Lugg's works from the exhibition.

This exhibition of works by Chinese artists appeared on June 3, 2009, and continues below.

The Chinese show concludes.

This appeared on June 8, 2009. It concludes below.

Concluding ...

This was from June 17, 2009. Again, it concludes below.

The last of it.

Anthony Harris's exhibition was reviewed on June 29, 2009.

The 1820 Settlers Art Group's show was reviewed on July 13, 2009.

Yes indeed, a Van Gogh exhibition. Read on ...

This was a historic exhibition, the EP Society of Arts and Crafts' 90th annual exhibition. This appeared on August 13, 2009.

This New Signatures exhibition was reviewed on August 31.

For those at Rhodes, NMMU and the NMM Art Museum who ensured I was eventually prevented from continuing with this sort of work, I guess you'e now happy. The Herald runs perhaps one art review every month, if that. A few years back I ensured art was given continuing prominence.
