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

Watch the evening sky over the next couple of weeks

Watch Mercury overtaking Venus early evenings this week  As it starts to get dark, look over to the west for the very bright “evening star” – Venus.  Venus is so bright it can be seen in twilight. As the earth turns you will see:

 * Mercury appearing as a relatively bright ‘star’ below left of Venus
* first Mercury then Venus setting
* Jupiter rising above the eastern horizon as another extremely bright “star”
If you watch this over the next two weeks, you’ll notice the movement of the planets: Mercury will move upwards each evening towards Venus, then appear to reverse and move back down towards the horizon. 
Friday evening (28th Oct) ook out for the young crescent Moon above Mercury and Venus.       
Happy planet gazing  :)

With thanks to the Joburg Planeterium for the info
