Opening on Human Rights Day, 21 March, the Springs Art Gallery is proud to presents the group printmaking exhibition We, the People. An artist’s reflection on human rights.

The exhibition features original artworks by the Ekurhuleni Public Employment Programme (EPEP) candidates created during the beginner’s printmaking skills development project by The Arts Company (TACS). The project forms part of the City’s EPEP mentorship programme and designed to give practitioners as much information and practical basic printmaking skills, addressing the scarce skills shortage within the creative industry sector.

We, the people, is a campaign initially started at Constitutional Hill to celebrate the South African constitution and promote “a future of equality, mutual respect, dignity and humanity”.

The EPEP candidates used the theme to create artwork about human rights and link the EPEP project to constitutional rights.  

Opening on 21 March, the Printmaking Art Exhibition runs until 29 March 2024 at the Springs Arts Gallery (SAG). Thereafter, the works will be displayed at the Rhoo Hlatswayo Art Centre as part of the promotion of the printmaking studio.

Public viewing is weekdays from 09h00 –16h00. The gallery is closed on weekends and public holidays.
