■ The AVA Gallery in Church street will exhibit the work of an AVA alumni, Johann Louw, until Saturday March 4. The exhibition shows a selection of Johann’s early and new works. This is the first in a series of exhibitions where established artists have the opportunity to showcase their progression since originally showing at the AVA Gallery. Johann’s first exhibition was presented by the AVA Gallery in 1996.• The AVA Gallery will hold their special general meeting at 35 Church Street on Monday February 13, at 5.30pm. The meeting will focus on proposing a resolution to amend the constitution to create more flexibility with regard to meetings of the board, as well as the final discussion of the purpose of the gallery going into its 170th anniversary and 50 years in its current space in 2021. Membership forms and cards are available on the night for new members to sign up. For more information, call the gallery at 021 424 7436.
