a collection or store of valuable or delightful things.
A continuation of a previous David Krut Projects (DKP) showcase of almost sold-out prints from David Krut Workshop (DKW) collaborations through the years; the Blue House presents Treasure Trove.
The show looks into the DKW archive via the Blue House at 151 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood. Artists include William Kentridge, Diane Victor, Raquel Van Haver, Senzo Shabangu, Colbert Mashile, Stephen Hobbs, Deborah Bell , and Michael MacGarry The exhibition runs for the months of June and July and will be a rotating exhibition throughout.
Our 151 Gallery space houses artworks from over two decades of international and local artist-workshop collaborations. Some of these works have never been featured for public enjoyment and others have been in the gallery archive since they were last shown after initial publication. With new artists continually emerging, DKW is always engaging new projects and ideas. One of the benefits of the printmaking medium is that it allows artists and publishers to create multiples of an image. This allows for an immense range of audience due to the multiplicity of the image. Multiples also extend the lifespan of an image in a way not as readily available in other mediums.
