By CityLife Arts Writer

If you are a visitor to Johannesburg in the next few weeks one of the events you may have to consider visiting is an exhibition titled Visitor, which features the work of visual artist Anna van der Ploeg. The xhibition opens at David Krut Projects Gallery, 142 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood, Johannesburg.

“David Krut Projects is pleased to present VISITOR,  a selection of work by Cape Town-based painter and printmaker, Anna van der Ploeg, Saturday, 26 June 2021 at 10 AM at 142 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood. The showcase includes paintings, carved and painted woodblocks, and prints – both unique and editioned – made in collaboration with the David Krut Workshop. Request an advanced catalogue by contacting us on,’ the gallery said in a statement this week announcing the opening of this solo exhibition.

In this exhibition, a selection of work made at different times, comes together to illuminate van der Ploeg’s sensitivity to the myriad personal, subliminal or subverted instances, activities or interactions that influence the public-facing aspects of our lives. Newer works reveal ideas that are recent visitors in van der Ploeg’s creative cosmos, while older works are visiting from a time gone by, or being revisited anew in the context of constantly evolving thought processes. Find out more in theonline viewing room on the David Krut Portal.”
