Visitors to the Durban Botanic Gardens on September 5 will be delighted to find a display of original art by highly talented South African artists under the palm trees at the Lake. The artists come from the south coast, the Midlands, the north coast and many are members of various art groups around Durban. All the artwork will be for sale with more than 30 local artists taking part and offering a wide range of styles and subject matter. Participating artists have exhibited both locally and overseas and their work can be found hanging in private homes, hotels, galleries and offices around the world.

Having enjoyed the art exhibition, visitors should visit the Orchid Show in the hall at the Visitors Complex and take in the Bot Soc Indigenous Plant Fair to get ready to plant their spring and summer garden. Get Christmas shopping in early by selecting an unusual but very personal gift of an indigenous plant, an exotic orchid or an original piece of artwork.

DBG Artworks runs on September 5 from 09h00 to 16h00. More details on the Durban Botanic Gardens events calendar available from the Information Centre on 031 3091170 or visit
