Letting art do the talking.

Storm McLaren, artist; “I’m going to be a famous artist one day”

Swakopmund • Iréne-Mari van der Walt

The Arts Association Swakopmund opened their annual Little Big Things exhibition on Friday evening.
Every year, art is sold anonymously at the exhibition. Interested parties may only know the identity of an artist upon purchase of the artwork.
Storm McLaren, a grade 10 student at Namib High School and one of the exhibited artists, noted that she felt nervous about her second exhibited piece. “I hope it gets sold but I also don’t want it that way – I want to take it home and hang it up,” she said.
Renate Coetzee is no stranger exhibiting her art as she’s “lost count” of how many pieces of her art have hugged a gallery wall. “It’s definitely been more than 15,” the 15 year old says. Two of Coetzee’s oil paintings are on display at the exhibition but she reckons that she definitely has a favourite. “I like the lighter one because it’s more fair, more me,” she explains. The young artist with more than a decade’s art experience says that each of her pieces took about three days to complete.
Erika Kölling, an art teacher and the founder of the Omaruru School of Arts, brought five pieces to the coast for the exhibition. “I could only bring five, I wish it were more but unfortunately we were limited,” she explains. All Kölling’s exhibited artists are ages 14 and above.
The Little Big Things exhibitions will be available for viewing until 31 October when it will then give way for the next exhibition only to return in 2020.
