Engel & Völkers Somerset West commemorates an art legend
Engel & Völkers Somerset West played host to the opening of an Art Exhibition, showcasing the works of Hannes Meiring, at their offices located in the Strand, on 15 August 2013. The exhibition is running until 15 October 2013.
Hannes Meiring was a well-known artist and architect who sadly passed away a few years ago. His wife Martie Meiring, lent some of his works to Engel & Völkers Somerset West for the exhibition in his honour. During their first week, they had approximately R30 000 worth of sales of his art works.
The evening was opened by guest speaker, Gawie Fagan who is also a well-known architect and was a good friend of Hannes Meiring.
“Over 60 guests attended this event in living memory of the great Hannes Meiring, which was beyond our expectations. It is so great to see what an impact Hannes still has on people’s lives and we would like to thank his wife, Martie, for allowing his memory to continue” concluded Wim Gericke, Licence Partner of Engel & Völkers Somerset West.
