US artist opens gallery in Cape Town

28th Feb 2013

A new art gallery is set to open in Cape Town - adding to the wealth of art venues dotted around the city.

Atelier AHA, the new "art and culture venue" of US abstract expressionist Andrew Hart Adler, will welcome visitors through its doors in Woodstock on March 2.

Adler, who is the son of the late composer and lyricist, Richard Adler, has achieved international acclaim for his artwork.

Once the apprentice of celebrated Dutch-American abstract expressionist Willem de Kooning in the 1970s, his paintings are now included in museums and corporate collections worldwide.

His gallery, which is likely to prove a top attraction for holidaymakers, aims to support the talent of South African artists in all disciplines.

"It is a venue that will encourage a growing base of supporters who encourage local talent, both known and lesser known, to allow them to evolve in their own country," said Adler.

Actor and comedy magician Charles Tertiens, the Ikapa Dance Theatre, musician and actor Roger Lucey, rock bands Juke Royal and Greengrassgrow and dancer Kash Athanatos will all be performing at the opening.

A dramatic reading directed by award-winning director Kim Kerfoot will also take place, as well as a performance of Nicol Ritchie's play, Loving Liars.
