The Caversham Press was founded in 1985 in the Caversham Valley, Balgowan, to afford South African artists access to a professional collaborative printmaking studio for the production of limited edition prints. The press was the first comprehensive facility of its kind in Southern Africa and has become highly regarded not only for the range of processes it offers and the expertise of founder and print master, Malcolm Christian, but also for its reputation as an accessible and collaborative art centre.

Malcolm Christian will conduct a Walkabout of the two exhibitions currently running at the Durban Art Gallery: People, Prints & Process: 25 Years at Caversham and Hats Off: 25 years Linocuts from Caversham on June 10 at 13h00.

The Walkabout will highlight the evolution of his collaborative creative journey since 1985. It will allow the public and students to engage with him on the Press’s recent work including the ‘Masabelaneni’ outreach programmes.

RSVP on 031 311 2274/69. Both exhibitions will run in the newly-refurbished Durban Art Gallery until July 21.
