Get your walking shoes out to explore Joburg and its surrounds this week-end

  You can’t complain about the lack of variety of what’s on in Jozi this weekend:

* Sat …5th Nov at 14.00 Join Parktown Heritage Association for the last Jacaranda Walk of 2011; park at the La Roche offices, 54 The Valley Road; no booking necessary; R40; stunning views of Parktown & Forest Town; more info phone 011 482-3349 

OR
* Meet at Arts on Main at 9.30 on 5th Nov for an Inner City Walk exploring the east of the city

And if you have explored the east of the city on Saturday with Main Street Walks, then you can explore the west with Walk and Talk Tours on Sunday.  Meet at Museum Africa Bree Street Johannesburg at 8am.  The walk will be approximately two to three hours.  The route will go Mary Fitzgerald square, Newtown,  past the old stock exchange,  going past the City Hall, Rand Club, Library Gardens, Corner House, Rissik Street Post Office, also going up Main Street Mall, Hollard Street, Standard Bank Mine Stope – also with a special visit to two to three buildings in Kruis and President Streets.  enquiries@walktours.co.za Cell: +27 83 269 9769

Opening at Everard Read Gallery and Circa in Lower Rosebank

Peace series 4 (2010) with revolver firearm components

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kerri Evans who paints the human figure, nude and clothed, opens at Everard Read on Thursday 3rd November.  Opening the same night at Circa is Paula Louw’s exhibition entitled ‘Deconstructivist’.  Louw literally takes things apart and in re-constructing the parts demands from the viewer a new way of looking and a new set of responses. In this new context different meanings arise.    For more see  http://www.rosebank.co.za/view/index/circa_events/62/1/137
