THE SA PRINT GALLERY
The South African Print Gallery has recently established a permanent space at Casa Labia, and will be selling a wide range of Investment prints, as well as Heritage and Design prints for all tastes.
At the beginning of 2015, the Clarke family entrusted all the artworks from Peter’s house in Ocean View to the Casa Labia Cultural Centre with the intention of recognising and preserving his legacy as an extraordinary South African artist. Over the coming years Casa Labia will be mounting a series of exhibitions celebrating Peter’s life as an artist. Drawing on ‘Listening to Distant Thunder: The Art of Peter Clarke’ (Philippa Hobbs & Elizabeth Rankin, Random House), we will take a chronological journey from his formative years in Simonstown to his commentary on post-apartheid South Africa. ‘A Man & His Thoughts’, currently running alongside the SA Print Gallery, is the first of many exhibitions to be drawn from Peter’s private collection and showcases the versatility of his printmaking and the important role it played in his early artistic development. With some previously un-exhibited works dating from 1959 to the 2000’s, the prints on show provide a unique insight into Peter’s thoughts and creativity.
The Gallery now includes a lounge area with a selection of books and gift cards. In addition to fine art prints we also have for sale an amazing selection of WALLCANDIES – please visit the link for more information on this exciting product.
