Covid-19 inspired exhibition on the cards

In August, Thapong Visual Arts Centre will host a Covid-19 inspired art exhibition.  This will be the first Members Exhibition for the year.

Works that will form part of this exhibition are those of artists such as Emmanuel Senamolela and Mbako Lesetedi.

The Coordinator of the Centre, Reginald Bakwena, says they want to see artists’ interpretation of the theme, creatively telling different stories and messages.

“We want to see them displaying their creative understanding of the theme,” he says.

The response to the exhibition, Bakwena says has been positive. Having seen some of the works that will be part of the exhibition, he notes that he is very impressed with what he has seen so far.

“I am impressed with what I have seen, and I am looking forward to seeing other works,” says Bakwena, who also revealed that after the official opening, they are planning to take the exhibition online in order to reach a bigger audience.

“We want to tap into the online market,” he notes.

Deadline for submission of entries, to the exhibition open only to members of Thapong,  is July 31, 2020.
