It is time for one of the most anticipated annual events in Pietermaritzburg when over two hundred original art works will be auctioned at the FOTAG Fabulous Picture Show on Friday 30 November at the Tatham Art Gallery.
Paintings and original artworks donated by well-known and aspiring KwaZulu-Natal artists are up for grabs. Not only will these works beautify and personalise your home, living and office space but also make ideal and unique festive gifts at reasonable prices.
In order to secure one of these gems it is necessary to register and place your bids during gallery opening hours, between the official opening Sunday 25 November at 11h00 and the final auction on Friday 30 at 18h00. The Tatham Art Gallery, normally closed on Mondays, will also be open on Monday 26th November. A gallery or FOTAG representative will be at hand between 10h00 and 16h00 each day to assist those wishing to place their bid. In addition the new Café Tatham on the first floor at the Tatham Art Gallery will be open.
Well known KZN architect, art historian and fervent gallery supporter Robert Brusse will be responsible for the live auction of items that breach the R1000 bid. Wine and snacks will add to the festive occasion that the Final Friday auction become in previous years.
Secure parking is available in the Tatham Grounds (Church St side) as well in the City Hall Councillor’s parking behind the City Hall. An exhibition of the art works acquired by FOTAG with funds raised from sales from previous Fabulous Picture Shows (now in its third year) will be on exhibition in the foyer.
All artworks for auction are viewable online at the Facebook FOTAG group and FOTAG Page offering opportunity to view and discuss well in advance. A proxy bids system is available on request for those who can not attend on the Final Friday auction.
All funds raised form the Fabulous Picture Show go toward acquisition of new art works for the Tatham Art Gallery’s permanent collection, rated as one of the finest and most culturally inclusive in South Africa.
