Exhibition summary:  Manuscript

The overall idea behind the exhibition ‘Manuscript’ originated with the idea of working with the Dewey Decimal System experienced as a scholar in school libraries.

A fun feature for this year’s Franschhoek Literary Festival is to link the gallery price tags to represent the Dewey Decimal Systems antique lined card with type writer text that one would have traditionally found in the library.

Artists will take their inspiration from text or from the book titles of their favourite novel, biography, poet or famous author. A writer that changed their perception of life or inspired them. A philosopher’s words or inspirational quote by one of history’s greatest minds.

Artist Participating:

Brahm van Zyl;  Henk Serfontein; Greta McMahon; Cedric Vanderlinden; Chris Denovan; Michele Davidson; Annelie van der Vyver; Jan Schutte; Judy Woodborne; Marinda Combrinck; JP Meyer; Juria le Roux; Kathy Botha; Aidon Westcott; Hannalie Taute; Andrew Mogridge; Adriaan Diedericks; Rudolf Rosochaki

Local Franschhoek artist Lindsay Patton will also be exhibiting her latest series of paintings.
