(“The Angel Gabriel” - wooden sculpture by Jackson Hlongwane)

Due to open on February 9 in the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg is the Generous Friends Exhibition.

Through its generous fundraising efforts since 1984, the Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery (FOTAG) has assisted the Gallery to acquire art works for its permanent collection. This has occurred particularly at the times when funding from the Municipality for the purchase of art works has been reduced or cut altogether.

Some of the works on display are recent acquisitions, such as oil paintings by Heather Gourlay-Conyngham and photographic prints by Kudzanai Chiurai.

The exhibition will be opened in the Tatham’s Schreiner Gallery on February 9 at 10h30. Opening Speakers will be Brendan Bell and Christopher Duigan. Safe parking will be available from the Entrance in Chief Albert Luthuli Street (Commercial Road)

The exhibition will run until May 25 at 17h00. The Tatham Art Gallery is situated opposite the Town Hall in Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg. It is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10h00 to 17h00. More information on 033 392 2801.
