This weekend on Top Billing, through stone, steel, bronze and timber – African art gets in 
touch with its public at the thrilling, new Norval Foundation Gallery.

Norval Gallery launch on Top Billing 
Nothing gets us more excited than inspiring art, incredible architecture and gorgeous landscaping. So, you can imagine how thrilled we were to get an invite to the opening of the Norval Foundation Gallery. If you’re a fan of beautiful things in a picture perfect setting you’re in for a treat.

Built on ground reclaimed from alien vegetation, the modern pavilion was designed to showcase art with a global appeal. The Norval family, whose name it carries, want to make art widely accessible to local and international visitors, students and schoolchildren alike.

Architect Derick Henstra’s design suggests a gallery looking boldly to the future of art in our country.

Among three opening exhibitions are Re/discovery and Memory with bronzes and drawings by Sydney Kumalo and Ezrom Legae – two major South African artists of the struggle era. Alongside these is an exhibit of work by Edoardo Villa and then there is the sculptural garden designed by Keith Kirsten and Raymond Hudson.

The opening was a celebration of art’s role in our vibrant society. The chosen exhibits recognize that today’s artists stand on the shoulders of giants.

It was Vincent van Gogh who said that we should always keep our love of nature ‘for that is the true was to understand art more and more’. In the case of the Norval Foundation Gallery, you can now enjoy the best of both.
