Assemblage invites you to join us at the end point of our Sept - Nov 2016 Peer Mentoring Programme. Thirteen participating artists will showcase their process and final artworks at an exhibition opening at 18:00 on Wednesday 30 November 2016 at Assemblage in Ferreirarsdorp. On the same evening all studio artists will be present and you will be able to view and visit their studios. Lastly, there will also be a Make Art Happen fundraising event with the opportunity for you to purchase some very affordable and beautiful artworks.

Join us for a glass of wine and to view the artworks on show produced as result of the Peer Mentorship programme, see what studio artists have been up to and buy some beautiful works. This is also an opportunity for the public to understand our Peer Mentoring programme better and bear witness to how effective the process can be for artists.

Our Make Art Happen fundraiser aims to raise funds for both Assemblage and the Peer Mentoring programme. We will be decking a wall with thumbnail sized affordable and beautiful artworks produced by the peer mentoring artists and other invited artists. These works will all be on sale for R400.
