Review - Opening of Paul Weinberg Exhibition

The opening of Paul Weinberg Exhibition - Here & There - at Kalk Bay Modern Gallery turned out to be more of an event than a traditional exhibition viewing. Opening his introduction speech to a capacity crowd, Max du Preez spoke of his long standing friendship with Paul Weinberg and the journeys they've shared, and ended by encouraging potential buyers to invest in a 'Weinberg' image as a valuable piece of South Africa’s own historical journey.
Roger Lucey followed with a guitar and lyrical accompaniment to some of Paul’s haunting images from a slide-show projection. This added a new dimension and depth to the visual experience of the evening as the music resonated with you as you absorbed again Paul’s exhibition images. Following on the theme of the journey, Roger's message pointed to the question: How can you know where you’re going, when you don’t know where you’ve been? Paul Weinberg’s exhibition is an invitation to others to gain some insight about the people of our land and possibly embark on a new journey of our own from here to there.
