At the end of 2013 Schalk van der Merwe was approached to particpate in the first Artmode event held at Youngblood Gallery in Cape Town. The event was a great launching platform for Schalk and introduced him to
a whole new group of art lovers and collectors. On the evening he did "live art" and the reception was fantastic
for both viewer and artist.
This winter, experience the 6th Edition of ArtMode in collaboration with Black Bottle blended Scotch whisky, proudly showcasing Art Noir and All That Jazz, a group of exceptional artists imitating life at the timeless Cape Town Club. ArtMode is known for staging a behind-the-scene experience that allows people to witness artists performing their works, in their element, and provides a platform for both established and budding creatives to express themselves in an environment that aims to inspire the ultimate space to create.
Artists exhibiting at the 6th Edition of Artmode include, Anton Smit, Nardstar, Kelly John Gough, Riaan Van Zyl, Janko De Beer, Schalk Van Der Merwe, Muziwandle Gigaba, Karen Wykerd, Gerhard Van Vuuren, Rudolf Liebenberg, Carel De Beer, Stephan Rae, Carro Allum and Effo Mungaunanzo
The exhibition runs from 26 August- 30 September 2016. The public launch will take place on 1 September.
