Durban’s biggest local independent Christmas fair, KZNSA’s Buzzart runs at the KZNSA Gallery in Glenwood until January 15, 2017.
“Now a local-only affair, with exciting makers in many disciplines, Buzzart is the destination for original proudly South African gifts and collectable art and bespoke design in Durban catering for those on a budget looking for stocking fillers, to those wanting to purchase collectable pieces,” explained KZNSA Gallery’s Angela Shaw.
The exhibition offers products to suit every taste and occasion - including jewellery; textiles; Christmas décor; lighting; fashion (clothing, shoes, bags and accessories), stationery; wirework; beadwork; ceramics; art and design books; and original artworks.
Buzzart special projects this year include a homage to the balmy subtropics taking the form of a range of work with a tropical / jungle theme – in particular working with a monkey motif honouring the Year of the Monkey which wraps up in January 2017. Artists working in Pascale Chandler’s studio have been working with a monkey theme and are exhibiting their work in the Park Gallery.
