Streets of Hope Exhibit at MarinMOCA

Friday, September 9th, 2011

My Streets of Hope : Soweto and Alexandra Townships exhibit continues to provoke and entice visitors at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato (Hamilton), CA.  The exhibit continues until Sept. 25, 2011.  Museum hours are 11-4, Wed. through Sunday.

Streets of Hope by Keven A. Seaver

Edgy and vibrant, Streets of Hope welcomes you to the current life of two South African townships.

Photography profits  from this exhibit (and from my website) benefit Friends of Alexandra, a non-profit working with kids, many of who I met and photographed. Buy a book and/or photo and help a child!  At the end of this show, I’d like to move Streets of Hope to another venue.  If you have contacts for that, let me know.

Streets of Hope: South African Townships

Thursday, August 11th, 2011
Streets of Hope by Keven Seaver
Streets of Hope is a glimpse into the townships of Alexandra and Soweto in South Africa.

My new photography exhibit will surprise many of my long time collectors, and possibly open my work to others.   Streets of Hope: Soweto and Alexandra Townships opens August 20, 2011 at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato, CA.  Venturing into the genre of street photography provided me with some exciting new images,  lingering insights, an exhibit and a book.  These photos were shot on October 6, 2010 while touring the townships with the extraordinary Robin Binckes, Spear of the Nation Tours. What began as a strong interest in the SA struggle history and apartheid, turned into a true passion.

All profits from sales of the book and photos will go the Friends of Alexandra (www.friendsofalex.org.za).

Private Eyes:  Artists’ Visions, a national juried exhibition, opens with a big reception on June 19, 2010 from 5 – 7 pm. at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art.  I have one of my new grids based on tulips, RENEWAL, juried into the show by well-known gallerist/art consultant, Andrea Schwartz of San Francisco.  I met Andrea about 25 years ago at the shop of my framer.  Unfortunately I never kept up the connection and I’ve wanted to get my art in front of her ever since.  I’m a bit shy about marketing my own work.  It’s probably my Achilles heel, actually.  So here we all are now, two decades later.  Older.  Wiser perhaps. Or not.
