"Heartless" at The Corner Shop, Linden




The shop on the corner of 7th Street and 4th Ave was buzzing.


The crowds were at The Corner Shop
for the opening of this art show.


No flowers on sale,
but who says that succulents cannot be given as a Valentine gift?


"I've been framed"...
Melissa having a bit of fun.


Even though this artist has been in and out of hospital lately,
she still managed to get this piece to the show


Some of the visitors to the show.


The Linden "arty crowd" was in attendance.


One of the Linden residents that "popped in"...
Hugh seems to be asking
"What is in this roll"?


And the answer is...
Boerewors!


Some of the artists taking time out to relax.


The piece in the foreground is the first piece that I have on the exhibition.
Springbok horns, a Warthog tusk mounted on a piece of driftwood,
with barbed wire snare.
This is the first time that my work has been displayed in public


Called "Rebound Hearts",
this year they held their shape.
I am certain that the artist is very relieved.


I did like this soap carving.


This is the second of the two works I have on display.
Called "Broken Heart" it consists of two Wildebeest horns
mounted on a rock.
Did I shoot the animal?
No, it was shot for food and the horns donated to me.


A view of the gallery...


When I inquired about the "war paint,
I was informed that it was her make up!


"Tiny Dancer"?
Listen to Elton John performing his iconic song.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?
I did like this work.


Knife blades stuck into the hearts.
These works make the ultimate "Heartless" statement.


This HAS to be my favourite "non-Valentine" art work!
The message says it all...


Well done to all concerned.
And a BIG "thank you" to John and Melissa and their staff
for staging this event.
The exhibition will run for a couple of weeks,
so pop in and perhaps something will catch YOUR eye.
Remember that you are supporting local artists,
and most of the work on sale is made from
 recycled or reclaimed material...good for the environment. 

Images on this trip were shot on
a Canon SX60HS.
