Following on from the success of the Porn Again exhibition, Gordon Froud of gordart Gallery in Melville will be putting together another exciting show at Merely Mortal, 357 Jan Smuts Avenue, Craighall. of Boerekitsch and other things, opens on Thursday, 4th of August and will run for 5 weeks.
The intention is to have a bit of fun again and examine past cultural icons that have survived by becoming hot decor images, pieces of satirical comment, collectors pieces et al. For many of these icons, the past political references have been lost but the present retro quality is what makes them interesting. The satirical nature of the subject certainly is not incidental rather intentional. So its time to think why many of us, have an itch for boerekitsch
You are hereby invited to participate with up to 3 small to medium sized works. Please confirm your participation by emailing either Gordon or Adrienne at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org respectively.
Have fun with this and please feel free to pass this invitation onto artists, crafters, jewellers etc who you feel might be interested in participating.
Important Details and Dates:
No participation fee is required.
Gallery Commission. A 35% gallery commission is to be included.
To calculate take the amount you wish to receive in the event the artwork is sold, divide by 65% and the total is the selling price.
For example the artists price is R 750.00. Take 750 divide by 65% =1 153.84 (round up to 1 155). Therefore selling price is R 1155.00
To check: take the selling price, 1155 multiple by 35% the resulting amount (403.84) is the gallery commission, then subtract and equals and you get back to you original price, in this case R 750.00
