The Ceramics SA, KZN Regional Exhibition is currently running at the KZNSA Gallery, this year under the theme of The Vessel and Beyond.

This Association is in its 41st year of promoting the development of the time-honoured ceramic art form. This year the exhibition presents members’ work in four categories; functional; expressive; sculptural and teaching studios.

Included in the exhibition are Fellows of the Ceramic Association: Garth Hoets, Lindsay Scott, John Shirley and Andrew Walford - artists who have earned this title for their commitment to the development of ceramics in South Africa as well as consistently producing work of a high standard. Guest exhibitors are Ian Calder, Astrid Dahl, and John Shirley.

An innovative development this year is a presentation of bowls embellished by contemporary visual artists who do not typically work in ceramics; they explore the range and diversity of working in a different medium on a classic ceramic form. This group of artists include: Dee-anne Donaldson, Lara Mellon, Brigitte Maingard, Michelle Silk, Joan Martin, Skull Boy, Jane du Rand, Fran Saunders, Sibusiso Duma, Anthea Martin, Adrianne D’Aeth, Pascale Chandler, Lesley Magwood Fraser, Anne Cleveland, Margaret Burnard, Renee Leslie

There will be an Exhibition Walkabout with Mary Slack on Saturday (July 13) at 11h000. All welcome.

The exhibition runs at the KZNSA Gallery until July 21. The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1703, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
