(Beauty Sekete)

Entries are beginning to trickle in for the 2015 edition of The Fabulous Picture Show at the Tatham Art Gallery. Organised by the Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery (FOTAG), this major annual fundraiser will be held in November, and FOTAG is again appealing to artists to donate an original, unframed artwork which will then be auctioned to raise money for the gallery’s acquisitions programme.

Pictured above, Pietermaritzburg artist Beauty Sekete – the first to donate a work this year – shows her fabric piece entitled The Eagle has Landed! The title relates to the fact that this is the first fabric work she has done after a long break.
So, collectors, pencil November 20 into your diaries – the date of the FPS auction. And artists who are keen to get involved, can find the details by visiting the FOTAG website at or contact Bryony Clark at or 033 392 2825 (mornings only).

The FOTAG Fabulous Picture Show 2015 runs from November 15 to 20 in the Main Exhibition Room of the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg (opposite the City Hall).
