Hannes Meiring Revisited
11 September 2015 to 16 September 2015
Walkabout & Opening: Saturday 12 September 2015 at 11h00
A commemorative exhibition for the late Hannes Meiring
From 11 to 16 September 2015, with an opening and walkabout at 11h00 on Saturday 12 September 2015, the Association of Arts Pretoria hosts a small but comprehensive commemorative exhibition for the late Hannes Meiring - acclaimed and versatile architect, restorer, artist, author and restaurateur. His deft sketches of historic Pretoria and Stellenbosch buildings are today collectors’ pieces, likewise his still life, landscape and abstract paintings. His anecdotes have lost none of their spark; his active participation in the save the Pretoria Church Square campaign is still fondly remembered and the new parliament wing and Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch as well as the Saldanha steel plant are witnesses to his architectural genius. Some of his paintings and books are on sale at the exhibition.
