The Gallery at The Space Between at Peta’s Place has been open since October 2015, and is a collaboration between well known ceramicist, Wendy Goldblatt and stylist and exhibition curator, Peta Hunter.
The idea came about as Wendy felt there aren’t enough outlets to showcase and sell ceramics in Gauteng, and the two joined forces to launch The Gallery, and kicked off with an exhibition of Lisa Firer’s porcelain tea lights.
Since then they have featured various ceramicists – Lalage Hunter, Drury Brandt, Nitsa Christopher and Wendy herself, as well as hosting a variety of specially themed group exhibitions – Functional Jugs, Eccentric Teapots, Original Objects.
Visitors love the ambience of the space which is situated in a forest like garden in Abbotsford and they are currently running a stunning exhibition featuring Doreen Hemp’s breathtaking porcelain pieces and photographs that inspired them which is on until the 30th of April.
Doreen Hemp has been involved with some sort of art form all her life – Weaving, enameling, quilting, painting, working with glass, photography and ceramics and she collects ‘things’ – scavenging on wild beaches and dunes, the arid Karoo, forests and wild places – for broken shells, rocks, grasses and textured treasures which become the inspiration for her porcelain.
This exhibition combines her love of the found object, photography and working with porcelain.
Venue: The Gallery at TheSpaceBetween, 18 2nd Street, Abbotsford
Gallery Hours: Friday to Sunday 11h00 – 15h00 or By Appointment
