FOREWORD                                   Dear artlovers,

                 VORWORT                                    one of my favourite tasks and  always connected with  much joy and

                                                            excitement is writing the welcome text for one of our art catalogues.

                                                            The moment of writing the Welcome is the moment when we share the
                                                            incredible beautiful art with you, our art interested audience – and this
                                                            is for the artists and for us very exciting.  Although our year went a little
                                                            bit differently than planned, there will hopefully still be a surprise, which

                                                            we will announce soon. So watch the space!
                                                            Now  we  are  especially  looking  forward  to  presenting  you  stunning,
                                                            colourful, strong, contemporary art by 25 artists from South Africa - and
                                                            you will want to have free walls, I promise you.

                                                            The journey of The Travelling Art Gallery began in 2017 with two successful
                                                            crowdfunding campaigns, taking art from 11 artists from South Africa to
                                                            the world. Today we travel, virtually and physically, with the art of 25

                                                            South African artists - and we are changing lives. For the participating
                                                            artists for sure and hopefully also for you, people who appreciate and
                                                            love art. We conceptualize art projects and we promote South African art
                                                            on an international level and the interest, the response has been huge.

                                                            For this we repeatedly say THANK YOU, because without people like you,
