MACS in Pietermaritzburg to showcase the work of local artists in two end-of-year exhibitions:

The Midlands Arts & Crafts Society (MACS) in Pietermaritzburg will showcase the work of local artists in two end-of-year exhibitions.

Art To Wear will feature work ranging from the predictable, the kind of thing you put on and forget about, to pieces that are more sculptural, extravagant, and pushing the boundaries of what can be "worn" in the traditional sense. Many different media have been used and many of the pieces will take their place on walls while waiting to be put on a human body. This exhibition will open on November 29 at 10h30. Join artists and other MACS members and their friends for refreshments.

The second exhibition will open a week later, on December 6, with the public showing starting at 11h30. The Banquet will include functional as well as decorative works used as table decoration in the widest sense. It will, of course, include real food, and visitors will be able to enjoy a MACS vegetarian buffet lunch, while looking at the art on display. Kirby McCall will provide gentle music. Lunch will cost R25.

Both exhibitions will be at the MACS Art House, 23 Haldane Road, corner of Ritchie Road in Pietermaritzburg. More information on 033 386 6500.
