2015 Sanlam Portrait Award winner John Pace.

Durbanville’s Rust-en-Vrede Gallery is hosting three exhibitions in the run-up to this year’s Sanlam Portrait Award. There are two solo exhibitions – one by 2015 Sanlam Portrait Award winner John Pace and another by top-40 finalist Sakhile Mhlongo – as well as a group exhibition, Not a Portrait, by the top-40 finalists. Meanwhile, local potters are exhibiting in a group show, Winter Blues, at the Clay Museum. The show includes a small solo by ceramicist Dale Lambert. The exhibitions run until Friday July 14. The gallery is open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 4pm, and on Saturday, from 9am to 1pm.
