Running at artSPACE Durban in conjunction with the Ceramics SA KZN Regional is the Garret Artists Exhibition titled Perennial.

The name “Perennial” reflects the growth of the Garret Artists Drawing Group year after year. The group was started by Jeanette Gilks in 1989 and, after her retirement from Garret Artists two years ago, the members have continued to work together on a weekly basis using Jeanette’s techniques and methods.

After a very successful exhibition with Ceramics SA in 2010, Garret Artists have once again been invited to exhibit in 2011, showing their innovative and exciting work from the past year. They have been exploring local architecture, dressmakers’ forms, landscape, Cubism and botanical life.

Participants include: Zelma Reuning, Annette Henderson, Brenda Richardson, Chris Reabow, Christina Godfrey, Colin Meyer, Dianne Sampson, Elize Rowan, Estelle Hudson, Gail Milne, Gill van Wyk, Gloria Adams, Jane Bishop, Lyndy Hurst, Patty Douglas, Daryl Houghton, Gayle Walters, Mary Slack, Renee Leslie, Ritha Fenske, Sally van Huyzen, Sue Blanckenburg, and Lesley Magwood.

Perennial opens on May 9 at 18h30 and runs until May 28. artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
