Exhibition of drawings and paintings by Tim Quirke for Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg.

Opening at 18h00 on October 2 in Pietermaritzburg in the Tatham Art Gallery’s Schreiner Gallery is an exhibition of drawings and paintings by Tim Quirke. Seven of Quirke’s paintings are framed in large, gilt Victorian frames that belong to the Tatham and the artist is using them to enhance the meaning of his work, which explores changing perceptions of history.

There is humour in the paintings, and gentle satire - and some recognisable faces for Maritzburgers. Quirke is a full-time artist who lives in Pietermaritzburg. His exhibition will run until November 16. More information on 033 392 2801.
