The NWU Gallery, as part of the North-West University, consists of two gallery spaces. In 2002 the NWU Gallery, as it is known today, came into existence. It has seen over a hundred exhibitions since its launch, from esteemed local and international artists alike. The NWU Gallery has been using the arts, in all its forms, as a vehicle for discussion, transformation, development and most importantly, education. It frequently hosts and presents exhibitions, projects, talks and events on societal issues regarding race, gender, sexual orientation, language, identity and institutional culture.
Current exhibitions include:
Jonel Scholtz – This LoVe
In this exhibition Jonel is trying to understand the Love emotion. She came to the conclusion that this emotion is not something to understand but rather an emotion that you do not control. It is and experience and only those who are brave enough may experience it.
She takes you through the different loves that she has experienced over the last two years. They are transmitted through her brush into the painting. For Jonel, love is a strong and sometimes fatal emotion.
Exhibition runs from 1 – 25 July, NWU Botanical Garden Gallery, 09:30-16:00.
