Carnegie Art Gallery hosts Craft and Music Fair

Roots Grown Deep keeps guests entertained.

NEWCASTLE CBD – The Carnegie Art Gallery hosted a quarterly craft and music fair, on Friday, February 23.

The purpose of the event was to mix visual and performing art.

“These forms of arts are inseparable, and use a similar language which is understood by everyone. These arts are like literature which improves a person’s physical, mental and emotional well-being, and has mysterious ideas of beauty and talent given by God,” said Curator of Carnegie Art Gallery, Phumzile Dlamini.

Music is food for the soul, a method of relaxation, socialising and making us enjoy life. It is a form of art, an atmosphere consisting of the sequence of sound, in time, tones, pitch, melody, harmony and rhythm.

“The different sounds produced by singing and playing various instruments, are similar to visual art. Art has elements which create the entire artwork such as colour, paint, lines, composition, tone, texture, perspectives, value, form, plane, space, three/two dimensional. Both music and visual use similar methods of touching our souls.”

The Roots Grown Deep band, consisting of Joel Karabo, Elliott and Ntando Mbatha, entertained guests with a soulful blend of jazz, reggae, Afropop, and classic.

“We like to thank the public for their attendance, and we hope they enjoyed the exhibition. A special thanks to Eric Kubheka and the interns of the gallery for their assistance in this event,” Mrs Dlamini concluded.
