Gregory Kerr at Chelsea on 34
Having closed its Wynberg doors earlier in the year, the Chelsea Gallery re-opens in Darling. Former Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Stellenbosch Gregory Kerr holds the inaugural exhibition. Kerr presents drawn and painted images of Nguni cattle, an interest in which he has pursued since 2002. These cattle have been closely tied to the economy and traditions of various Nguni groups in this country since their southward migration centuries ago.
Since retiring from his academic post in 2000. Kerr has lived in Schoenmakerskop, near Port Elizabeth, where he has established a studio and teaching facilities. He holds a PhD in Aesthetics and Criticism and has practiced as an artist since graduating from the University of Witwatersrand in 1972. His work is to be found in many public and private collections in the country.
