Dear Art Lovers & Collectors,

As we reach the end of another year we would like to thank you for your loyal support, patronage & enthusiasm.

According to our annual tradition, 2015 concludes with a salon-style exhibition featuring accessible, affordable artwork across a broad range of mediums by some of Salon Ninety One’s favourite emerging and established local creatives. The exhibition is scheduled to run until the last week of January 2016. Artworks will be rotated regularly & after the opening day, works may be taken home on the day of purchase, so come treat yourself & your loved ones!

This year we will be supporting The Bookery (www.thebookery.org.za). The gallery & artists will be donating 10% of all sales towards building a library & running a creative workshop with the kids at Usasazo Secondary School in Khayelitsha. Everyone is invited to donate books – specifically Xhosa & Afrikaans language, as well as Art-related books.

Please join us on Saturday the 5th of December from 11am until 3pm for our final exhibition of 2015. It is going to be a festive day of STELLAR art, sweet treats by the lovely artist/baker Alice Toich, beer by Leopold7 and so much more…

We look forward to celebrating a truly fantastic year with our artists, friends, and clients.

Warm Regards,
Monique & The Salon Ninety One Team

Cassandra Leigh Johnson

Cassandra Leigh Johnson is a graphic designer and contemporary illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. Having graduated from the Vega School of Branding, she discovered a unique passion for illustration and began her journey as an artist of this discipline, honing her skills and cultivating her distinctive style. Currently employed as a designer and illustrator at Machine Agency and working with some of SA’s top designers including Dani Loureiro, Cassandra spends most of her spare time illustrating and exhibiting. Cassandra has been actively involved with a number of exhibitions at Salon91 including Winter Wonderland, If You Let Yourself Love A Wild Thing, I’d Rather Be Swimming, The Editions Show, and Home is where I’m with you. Other selected group shows in which Cassandra has participated include: Lost & Found (Revolution Warehouse, Woodstock Exchange, Cape Town 2013); The Wavescape Art Board Project (2012), where a collaborative work by Cassandra Leigh Johnson and Jade Klara sold on auction in the Hamptons, New York, and all proceeds were donated to the Isiqalo Foundation and Hoops4hope initiative; Show me your Munny, an exhibition of customized Munny Toys through TOITOY (TOITOY Store, Kloof Str, Cape Town, 2011); PASTE, a street art exhibition (Khayelitsha & Cape Town CBD); Body of work – Dead man’s hand (Tattoo Convention Exhibition, Woodstock Exchange, Cape Town, 2011); and Lightly Salted (Green Market Square, Cape Town, 2010). The combination of Cassandra Leigh Johnson’s rich and vibrant colour palette and her intricate, ornate treatment, result in an excessively decorative signature style, which allows the viewer to be drawn into her unique world of a distorted, fictional reality.
