Aardklop National Art Festival 2 – 7 October 2018


2018 Aardklop 2 – 7 October 2018

This is my first time exhibiting at Aardklop Festival taking place in Potchefstroom. It lasts for a whole week and both Geoffrey and I will be there in attendance. We are both super excited and hope to see as many of our local supporters as possible. I have heard that there is a large variation of visitors and I have therefore been busy painting a cross section of all the subjects that I usually paint.
