 The KZNSA Gallery invites artists to participate in an exciting group exhibition titled Reference - The Artists Photo.

The Ernest Cole Award is a prestigious event profiling the work of 2012 winner Ilan Godfrey. Reference will run concurrently on the Mezzanine and Park Gallery showcasing a variety of artists' photographs.

“The photograph is an important tool in contemporary art practice,” says a Gallery representative. “We live in a world of technology whereby the photographic medium is a convenient tool for artists to record their environment to make art. The aim of the exhibition is to allow the viewer to peek behind the scenes of the artist’s process. To capture a work in progress or to reference the recording and mapping of an idea, before the production process.

Submission dates are September 20, 21 and 22. Medium: Photograph, printed to A4 size (unmounted, unframed) Entry fee R50. Retail price R50. All proceeds from sales go back to KZNSA to cover the exhibition expenses.

Reference - The Artist's Photo is scheduled to run at the KZNSA Gallery from September 26 to October 11, 2013.

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
