Bettie Cilliers-Barnard

She constantly questioned earthly and transcendental thoughts on human existence. Cilliers-Barnard participated in more than 70 solo exhibitions in South Africa, Paris, London and Taiwan and many group exhibitions both at home and abroad. Her paintings, tapestries and murals are found in public collections, museums and private collections. In 1983 she produced a tapestry Guardian Angel of the Arts for the State Theatre in Pretoria.
