Join the August House Upper Ground Artists as they collectively host a pop exhibition entitled “Sanctuary”, showcasing their most recent work. Sanctuary denotes a place that provides refuge or safety from danger. In a time of a global pandemic, these artists have taken sanctuary in the production of art. Allowing them to deal with the realities of everyday life while looking forward to a better world. This is the first exhibition at August House since the beginning of the pandemic. Many artists have found themselves in precarious positions because of lockdown but that does not mean that they have stopped working. This exhibition will shine a light on their new work.
In keeping with the theme of the exhibition, the artists will be donating a portion of sale proceeds to Door of Hope (https://doorofhope.co.za) whose mission it is to save abandoned babies, providing them with a home and helping create a bridge to a better world. During the pandemic, Door of Hope has seen a considerable rise in the number of abandoned babies and needs all the support it can get. Please note that only 50 people will be allowed into the exhibition space at one time so please book a time slot. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Masks will be mandatory.
