Member of Arts Association of Swakopmund; Anton von Wietersheim; “Since 'incense, gold and myrrh' were given by the three wise men on the occasion of the birth of Christ, Christmas has been a celebration of giving, of love, of making others feel special.”

The “Christmas Magic” exhibition was launched last Saturday at the Woer-mannhaus Gallery in Swakopmund.

The exhibition featured artistic works from various artists, ranging from paintings to handmade crafts.

Speaking at the launch one of the members of the Swakopmund Arts Association, Anton von Wietersheim, explained why the ­exhibition was named Christmas Magic.

“You cannot call it otherwise, if you look around and observe the crafty crafts, beautiful paintings, and talented works of art, presented with great care and love in this gallery.

“Since 'incense, gold and myrrh' were given by the three wise men on the occasion of the birth of Christ, Christmas has been a celebration of giving, of love, of making others feel special – at the same time acknowledging and celebrating the gift of Christ Jesus himself, as saviour to humankind.

“Christmas Magic is a fitting title for a Christmas exhibition with such exceptional flair, and such unique products of art and craft, clearly created with much ingenuity, great talent and patience, and arranged in this dignified gallery with such obvious love and care,” said Von Wietersheim.

The exhibition, which also includes well-crafted antiques, ends on 5 January.

Art lovers can purchase the art pieces at affordable prices at the Woermann-haus Gallery.

Viewers will recognise the affection, warmth or love of the giver and will be glad about it.

They can treat themselves and their family to a unique advent wreath, a special Christmas tree or a traditional, handmade nativity scene.

“The variety and the selection of various articles of handicraft, painting and drawing, sewing and embroidery is overwhelming and clearly different from that of other markets by their uniqueness and the high quality,” he said.

He thanked the Arts Association of Swakopmund's team for their hard work in organising the exhibition.

“We can only commend and thank the team for the effort and special care in preparing this Christmas magic, rounding it off with a most intriguing and beautiful décor, fitting the occasion perfectly.”

During the festive

period, the Woermannhaus Gallery will be open to the public on week-days from 10:00 to 12:00 and from 15:00 to 17:00. On weekends, the gallery is open from 10:00 to 12:00.
