About this group
Is a creation Art or a Craft?
Do Artists not create a craft for themselves by reproducing works that delight the eye or baffle the mind?
We promoted the art lifestyle of Johannesburg and now of Cape Town as well. ZWBDC has been running www.artorcraft.co.za for over 9 (nine) years now. The site was started in 2005 as we (Cliff Featherstone and Heather Malcomess - Online content) saw at art exhibitions the lack of audience. We started by taking photographs for the venue and then with the development of digital media we have progressed to other channels. Our work is largely on facebook which can be reached from our website.
Join us for a journey of the eye through our website, newsletter and database.
Artorcraft believes in being proudly South African. Our intention is to encourage and help build art in SA.

Peter Clarke (born 2 June 1929 in Simons Town, South Africa, died 13 April 2014, Ocean View, Cape Town, South Africa) was a highly accomplished and versatile South African visual artist, working across a broad spectrum of media. Clarke was also involved in literature as an internationally acclaimed writer and poet. Of these three roles, he joked: "Had I been triplets, it would have made it much easier because each could have his own job... There are times when I go through a writing phase and there are times for phases of picture-making but there is never a dull moment."
Clarke was best known for his graphic prints, particularly his woodcuts, and in later years he moved into collage. He also used leather, glass, found objects and other mixed media to produce his colourful work.
Clarke's artistic career spanned more than 6 decades and he has unsurprisingly produced a large number of works and appeared in many exhibitions. Nevertheless, commentators generally feel that despite this experience and exposure, his work was not given the full recognition it deserves
