Something Old, Something New at The Cape Gallery

Nostalgia and romance are the themes of the first group exhibition of 2018; a summer show of ‘collectables’ called ‘Something Old, Something New’, now on at The Cape Gallery. With works dating from 1855 – 2017, the exhibition runs from 4th to 26th January.

Time, tradition and change; cycle and re-cycle require of us a constant reassessment of what we assign value to in each unique piece of art. How we assign that value depends upon a personal journey as we identify what resonates with us, and what is recognized as being significant in a wider social context of the society in which we live. This context is in constant flux, never more so than now. ~ (Gail Dorje)
