It has become a tradition! Graduates of the College of the Arts get together once a year in February to exhibit their new work.
This was the 7th New Beginnings Exhibition hosted by the Omba Art Gallery at the Namibia Craft Centre. Recent and past graduates of the College of the Arts got together to showcase the results of their artistic labours.
Works arrived by taxi from the north, south, east and west of Namibia, as far-flung graduates of the College send their works to the capital for the annual New Beginnings Exhibition. Visual Artists who studied at the College enjoyed this opportunity to exhibit their work and valued the opportunity to sell their work to fund future artistic projects.
Art pieces of incredible diversity adorned the walls of the Omba Gallery: Sculptures made from re-claimed wire and metals, paintings stuck with beads, drawings created using smoke and glue, as well as more traditional prints, collages and paintings.
The creativity and inventiveness of these graduates had to be seen to be believed.
