Oliewenhuis Art Museum is giving honour to the life and work of an incredible artist,Karin Jaroszynska (1934-2014). Oliewenhuis holds 20 artworks of Jaroszynska in its permanent collection.Most of the works, including the Helsinki-series,were part of a generous donation by the art collector and philanthropist FernandF. Haenggi to Oliewenhuis in 2006; the remainder were purchased by Oliewenhuis. Her work- surrealist, playful and somewhat mysterious- shows Jaroszynska’s extraordinary talent and artistic integrity.

South Africa celebrates Women’s Month annually in August and pays tribute to the more than 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956. The women marched in order to protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women.  The Pass Laws represented a system which was intended to control women even further and reduce women to passive beings, at the mercy of men.
