‘Free to Fly’ exhibition and auction to take place at FNCC

The Franco Namibia Cultural Centre will present the opening of a colorful exhibition for charity that will display the talents of students and artists friends of the Barbara Böhlke Art School, on 29 September.

The group which has an age range from 6 to 80, donated over 100 paintings around the interpretation of the theme ‘Free to Fly’ that will be exhibited from 29 September to 19 October. The entrance is free.

The artworks will be on sale at a very affordable price, while 10 paintings by well-known artists will be auctioned. The event is made possible by contributions of the FNCC, Windhoek Stationers and Colas Namibia and all proceeds from the sales and auction will go to the non-profit organization ‘Wilderness Therapy’.

Contributing artists Barbara Pirron, Cathy McRoberts, Elisia Nghidishange, Fillipus Sheehama, Helen Harris, Hercules Viljoen, Isabel Katjvivi, Ismael Shivute, Mieke Droomer, Nicky Marais and Barbara Böhlke have all donated paintings in the same format, following the theme to support the cause.

Attendees can look forward to viewing artworks of a high standard in a wide variety of media ranging from paint, both oil and acrylic, pastels and mixed media. Barbara Böhlke is an acclaimed painter and has been teaching art for more than 20 years to students from all walks of life. Her Art School is located on Kenneth Kaunda Street in Klein Windhoek.
