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

The fair presents a great selection of emerging and established local art and bridges the divide between art and design. The CT Art fair will have a wonderfully positive impact on the Cape Town Art scene itself and will certainly heighten international awareness, regard and interest in Cape Town and our wealth of creative talent.

Over 40 galleries and 130 artists will be exhibiting work from the full spectrum of media. Wanted Business Day Magazine will be presenting an installation of new video works, curated by Gary Cotterell, featuring some of SA’s most exciting contemporary artists namely; Mikhael Subotzky, Haroon Gunn-Salie, Barend de Wet, Khanyisile Mgongwe, Kudzanai Chiurai and Cameron Platter. Cape Town curator and critic, Andrew Lamprecht will be curating the featured artist space. Land and environmental artist Strijdom Van Der Merwe has been commissioned to make a site-specific work for the fair and the list goes on.

Neill Wright

In 2007 Neill graduated, with distinction to the degree, Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art (Honours), at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, majoring in new media. His production then, looked particularly at the social products of contemporary society from a global as well as South African perspective. This exploration was taken further and similar themes were covered as part of his overall body of work required for obtaining the degree, Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art, which he graduated with in 2009, majoring in printmaking.

Working in a number of different mediums such as, drawing, print, painting and sculpture, Neill continues to draw inspiration from the media, society and politics, attempting to create a panoramic view of all the issues, difficulties and paradoxes which are embedded in global and more specifically, South African society. His interpretations often have a somewhat comic/tragic twist to them which is the artists attempt to create an uncomfortable space in which we, as observers, are caught between being saddened and amused.

Since completing his education Neill has been extremely prolific, participating in a number of group exhibitions at Salon91 and Lovell Gallery in Cape Town, and at In Toto Gallery in Johannesburg. Major solo exhibitions to date include The Hilarity of Reality, Circa on Jellicoe, Johannesburg, June 2013; Spectacular but Empty, The Lovell Gallery, Cape Town, November 2012; and Protect Your Roots, Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection, Cape Town, February 2011. Neill was included in the Johannesburg Art Fair, South Africa, during 2012 and participated in the Cape Town Art Fair, the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair, the Johannesburg Art Fair, the Turbine Hall Art Fair (Johannesburg), as well as the Standard Bank National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, South Africa during 2013. His works are housed in private collections in Europe, the United States, Australia and South Africa. The artist is currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
