ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Along with several other local artists, Ros has been invited to submit work that is inspired by the name Polkadraai, which is one of a range of wines produced at Stellenbosch Hills. She will be using the opportunity to revisit painting with wine… and opening a few bottles in the process, of course!
ABOUT THE THEME
POLKA: a lively dance of Bohemian origin in duple time (hop-step-close-step)
–DOT: one of a series of patterns used especially on fabric
–DRAAI: a winding road or a turn in a polka dance
