Lauren Palte and Paul Birchall on Show at the AVA

A Wounded Surface is a translation of Lauren Palte's personal experiences into painting. The experiences engage memories and stories mined from her family photographs, while also located in an experience of illness in her body.

June Exhibitions at the AVA

The Duality Of Remembering And Forgetting, a group exhibition in the Main Gallery, features artworks by Corlie de Kock, Sandra Hanekom and Madelein Marincowitz. The common thread woven through each of these artists work is the compulsive and obsessive fastidiousness in which they create detailed images.

In “Merry Hell and the Dreambody”, Kate Gottgens’ new body of paintings, conflict and desire are central themes.
