Annual Wildlife Exhibition at The Cape Gallery

Visual Safari at The Cape Gallery

Annual Wildlife Exhibition at The Cape Gallery reminds us that the preservation of wild places with their unique eco-systems has become a challenge to the conservators today.

In presenting images of wildlife the artist is often an advocate for the survival and maintenance of endangered species.

Who has not sat at the fireside with friends and swapped stories of encounters with animals in the wild. Surely this is one of the oldest past times in the history of mankind. Travelers come from distant places to South Africa re-ignite the flame, to engage in the primal hunt with their cameras, to experience the bushveld and have a story to tell.

Scenes and events experience on Safari are so vivid, so visceral that it requires of the artist enormous skill to convey them with impact and daring. Recognition for those who achieve this is forthcoming and generous.
