Setting up an oasis of artistic and cultural expression right in the nation’s capital city is what Capital Art Fair Tshwane seeks to accomplish. Capital cities are known to play a pivotal role in preserving the nation’s artistic legacy, serving as custodians of its cultural heritage for future generations, and forging a nation’s identity. In Tshwane, this responsibility takes on added significance, given the city’s rich political history, cultural diversity and eclectic international community. 

By providing a platform for artists to showcase their work and engage directly with audiences, Capital Art Fair Tshwane (CAFT) wants to ensure that South Africa’s artistic legacy continues to thrive and evolve. This inaugural art fair with the theme Intersections will take place at Menlyn Maine, Pretoria from 5 to 7 April 2024.

The soothing breeze at twilight hours along the tropical Goa beaches tugged at the sensibility of Francesca Amalia Grimaldi like a thin layer of fine silk, triggering spontaneous creativity in the Italian painter. That inspired her to wield her brush on the canvas with distinctive imagery, even as the images carried flashbacks to her formative years on the seafronts of her Mediterranean country.

An exhibition, which is now on in the Indian capital, features ‘Goa Beach’ among 32 select paintings of the European artist. The five-day event, named ‘Metamorphosis’ and displaying some of Francesca’s most recent mixed-media works, will be for public view till February 27 at LTC, Bikaner House. The show is organised by Masha Art, a prominent art investment firm with a portfolio of over 5,000 contemporary paintings and sculptures.
