A panorama shot of the Everard Read Gallery show.  Click on it to see the whole thing.

The last day was today.  I went in and greeted everyone who was visiting (but didn't take their picture) and thanked the gallery for their hard work.

Graeme Shackleford's article about City Chromatic

Everybody reads our little local newspaper, known in my neighborhood as the Rosebank Killarney Gazette and in others as the Chronicle, the Herald, etc.

Graeme Shackleford wrote a nice article about City Chromatic.  You can read it here in a piece called "Niebuhr Paints the City".

Video of the Lilian Road Studio Show

Have a look at the studio show video we made on 20 November.  There was a fantastic turnout, and the weather was warm and sunny so we hung out on the balcony, where the kids drew with sidewalk chalk.

Cityscape with Memories

This commission is going to live in Australia.  The people wanted an amalgam view of Johannesburg so I combined three perspectives and then overlaid local figures.

Inside Joburg, the book

Nechama Brodie's new book Inside Joburg: 101 things to see and do has a feature on my work in the "What to Buy" section -- thanks, Nechama!

Her text reads:

There is also a handful of established artists working outside the conventional gallery/curator structure.  One of Joburg's most interesting (and affordable) emerging talents is painter Hermann Niebuhr (, who has exhibited several series exploring Joburg's city spaces -- from empty lobbies in Hillbrow apartment blocks to a recent show inspired by the city's disappearing mine dumps, exhibited at the AngloGold Ashanti gallery in Newtown.

Exhibition 14 August Casa Labia, Muizenberg

I'm happy to announce we've set the date for the exhibition opening at Casa Labia:  14 August 2010.

It will be a solo show.  I'm working on the paintings now.

From the Casa Labia website, about the venue:

Built in 1929 to reflect the spirit of 18th century Venice, Casa Labia is the former Muizenberg residence of Count and Countess Natale Labia.

Following a complete two-year restoration by the family, this much-loved national monument was re-opened to the public on 5 May 2010 as South Africa’s most exquisite multi-functional cultural centre and up-market venue; complete with modern art gallery, Africanova boutique and an Italian cafĂ©.
