Serving Msunduzi through the Visual Arts
Matric Art 1997
to 15 June 1997
The Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg is currently giving promi-nence to artworks by senior secondary pupils from Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands by hosting a special school's exhibition for this region.
The artworks selected demonstrate the wide range of approaches, media and techniques explored in matric courses throughout KZN. This diversity is reflec-ted in the many disciplines represented in the exhibition, including painting, sculp-ture, graphic design and printmaking.
An interesting addition to the exhibition is a section of works by art teachers themselves.
There is also a special display focusing on careers that students can pursue in art put together by local art teacher Val Maggs with the assistance of the fine art and history of art department of the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg.
The Tatham Art Gallery holds an Art Collection that contains significant British and French artworks dating back to the 18th century. Its South-African art collection is focused on, but not exclusive to, the art of KwaZulu-Natal.
The Tatham Art Gallery hosts a range of Art Exhibitions. These include traveling and researched exhibitions as well as exhibitions initiated by the Gallery and compiled from the collection.
