Namibia: Carola "celebrating Nature" Exhibit Opens in Swakop

Swakopmund — That's what the art world was waiting for a long time! After nearly twenty years, well-known Namibian artist, Carola Kronsbein-Goldbeck, is presenting her latest works at the Fine Art Gallery in Swakopmund. The exhibition titled Celebrating Nature opens tonight at six O'clock (18h00). Carola is showing her full repertoire in this exhibition. She is known - especially amongst art lovers - for her pastels. However, she'll also presents works in watercolor, oil and some linocuts.

As she is also known as one of Namibia's wildlife artist, wildlife forms an important part of the exhibition. Capital kudus in the typical Namibian environment, Oryx and Antelopes on the wide open pans of Etosha but also smaller species like warthogs and meerkats are bursting from life - simply a feast of senses. That she has forgotten nothing is obvious - her colours are strong and her brush strokes dynamic.

Whether her wildlife, landscapes or a flower the viewer will feel how much joy the artist had while painting. Indeed a successful come-back! The exhibition is on until December 24.
