Assemblage is pleased to announce that it will be holding an open studio event on Saturday 12 September. This forms part of ART WEEK JOBURG 2015 of the Braamfontein and Newtown day. There will be shuttles leaving Wits Art Museum in Braamfontein from 12:00 stopping at the Newtown sites. For more on ART WEEK visit www.artweekjoburg.co.za or download the app on Android or Itunes.

Please join us for a glass of wine, gourmet bites and to view what the featured artists have been up to since they started their journey at Assemblage.

Assemblage will also be exhibiting works made by artists that participated in our most recent Peer Mentorship programme.

Featured artists will include:

  • Sita Suzanne
  • Chad Farah
  • Nombuso Bhogolo
  • Kiyasha Thambi
  • Ndabuko Ntuli
  • Victoria Stiff
  • Nicci Olivier
  • Anthea Pokroy

All resident studio artists will be present in their studios and the public will have the opportunity to view and purchase artwork, speak to artists about their process and to be part of the Assemblage community for a day.

There will also be an opportunity for the public to doodle, scribble, sketch graffiti, make paintings, experimental and conceptual works. A selection of the drawing will be donated to 1000 Drawings - An empowerment project that culminates in a one-night-only, massive inner-city art sale to raise funds for a deserving cause – The Night of a 1000 Drawings.

The Gourmet Hawker food truck will be selling gourmet bites by Chef Llewelyn Evans.

DJ Deep Ancestral will be playing a selection of deep house, lounge, break beats and nu-jazz.
