Claude Monet – Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris

March 29, 2018

Mention the word Impressionists and I’ll run on water to view an original. If you share that passion, a visit to Musée de l’Orangerie is imperative.

The Impressonist and Post-Impressionist art gallery is located in Jardin des Tuileries in Paris’s 1st arrondissement, between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde. It was built in 1852 to shelter the garden’s orange trees and also to exhibit agriculture, animals, plants and other rare art of the day.

Seventy years later, the story picks up quite nicely.

The beauty of Design Indaba is that you’re entertained or wowed from arrival to departure. Like this DSTV poster in the entrance hall. From a distance its eye-catching in its simplicity.

Arno Carstens art exhibition at I Love My Laundry

June 25, 2012

For the sake of fun and bubbles, I hit up I Love My Laundry again. This time for the launch of the Arno Carstens ‘Arno Plus’ art exhibition.

HOWZIT!

Yip, that Arno! The solo rock singer and Springbok Nude Girls frontman, Arno. While he’s been banging out tunes and working concerts like a pro all over the world, he’s been keeping a secret from us. Art. It’s his first love; a career he would have pursued had he not met genius guitarist slash producer Theo Crous, 18 years ago.
