(“Dam, Ballito”by Karen Fortune)

The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery is hosting a selection of works by KZN artist Karen Fortune.

In spite of living in Durban, Fortune has only exhibited in Johannesburg, so Elizabeth Gordon notes that they are delighted that she has now given them her works.

“Karen’s paintings fall into the hyper-realistic genre, with ultra fine detail. She is passionate about our land and enjoys painting Southern African landscapes, houses – usually abandoned and derelict – and, often garage doors,” explains Elizabeth Gordon Gallery owner Joy Reynolds. “Please pop into the Gallery to see these paintings - her attention to detail is something to be marvelled at!”

Fortune is an accomplished and dedicated mountain biker and her travels through KZN has encouraged her to add KZN scenes to her repertoire.

The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery is situated at 120 Florida Road. For further information phone 031 303 8133, fax 031 303 8136, email: or visit
