This year, the popular KZN Midlands Matric Art Exhibition opens earlier than usual. This means that most of the artworks on display come from learners who matriculated in 2012. The Gallery's education staff visited all local schools that teach art for Matric to see final exhibitions. Teachers were asked to keep some of the best artworks and visual diaries from 2012 aside for the Gallery selection, which takes place with the help of an invited selector.
The present curriculum encourages learners to explore their initial ideas through a process which includes research, observation and imagination. Every year is different and this time around we were pleasantly surprised to find so many learners making three dimensional artworks. As usual this exhibition features an exciting mix of images, ideas, forms, shapes and innovation by our young artists.
