After opening the show of Justin and Benon last week at Teresa Lizamore’s Gallery, Pierre Lombart and his wife Lynn hosted a private dinner generously organised by Standard Bank Wealth and Investment at their house on behalf of SAFFCA, AFSACSA and the Bag Factory. During dinner, the guests were able to engage with some prominent artists from the Southern African Region. The event was furthermore sponsored by Great Domaines. The above picture depicts one of the tables before the arrival of the guests.
Sara Hallat and Pierre will open the fundraising dinner at the Bag Factory tonight. More than 40 artworks below ZAR 10 000.00 will hopefully find new homes. The artists will demonstrate their generous support by sharing the result of the sales with the Bag Factory. Seventy Five carefully selected patrons of the Art have been invited to attend the walking dinner.
On Saturday the 21st of May, Sara and Pierre, will have conversations with 6 established artists working in and around Johannesburg: Usha Seejarim, Minnette Vari, Pauline Gutter, Pat Mautloa, Nelson Makamo and Benon Lutaaya at the Kingsmead Book-Fair.
