In seven days time Barnard will open Mary Corrigall’s curatorial exploration into the effervescent theme of Romanticism, evinced by artists based predominantly in Cape Town. It brings together a new and established generation of painters preoccupied with the area where nature, science and the sublime converge under the banner of a title referring to a movement that dates back to the late 18th century. Works by Barnard artists – Alexia Vogel, Sarah Biggs and Robyn Penn will be joined by those produced by Heidi Fourie, Ronél de Jager, Rosie Mudge and Marcus Neustetter. Be sure to join us from 18:30 onwards.
