Star Sailors

50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

Astronaut /ˈastrənɔːt/ n. astro from the Greek word astron, meaning "star" and root "naut", from "nautes", the Greek word for "sailor."

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Art.co.za and The Viewing Room Art Gallery present a curated group exhibition featuring over 60 artists who have created artworks exploring man's infatuation with the moon and the stars.

The exhibition opens on 20 July 2019 (the day Apollo 11 landed on the moon 50 years ago) at 15:00 and runs until 7 September 2019.

The exhibition will be opened by Roger Deane, South African radio astronomer, associate professor and head of astronomy research group at the University of Pretoria. He was part of an international team of scientists that captured the first image of a black hole released this year.

Please join us for a glass of wine and to meet the artists!
