Jacquie Tarr’s ‘Sketches of Life’ At La Bonne Table

NAMIBIAN artist Jacquie Tarr presents ‘Sketches from Life’, an exhibition of small watercolour paintings and sketches of animals, landscapes and still lifes, opening at the FNCC’s Restaurant La bonne table on Thursday, 17 July at 18h30.

Tarr draws inspiration from nature and global environmental issues in this exhibition. For her representational, semi-abstract and abstract paintings she uses charcoal, watercolour, acrylic, pen and mixed media.

While the artist has participated in several group exhibitions since the late 1980s, this is her first solo show. Tarr usually donates proceeds from the sales of her artworks to local charities. This specific exhibition serves as a fundraiser for the Namibian Have-a-Heart project – a non-profit animal welfare organisation that encourages responsible pet ownership and offers spay and neuter services to pet owners with little or no income.

The exhibition will be opened by Dr Adrian Adank and will run until 8 August.
