Currently running in the Schreiner Gallery at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg is Faye Spencer’s exhibition titled Departures.

The exhibition draws together three bodies of work spanning six years of Faye Spencer’s art production: the Office Politics series, Indian Yellow and the Wish List projects, which include paintings, printmaking and creative writing.

Each of the three projects engages with notions of departure and dislocation, loss, and efforts at recovery, in various forms. The artist is interested in the dialogue that these different bodies of work establish internally in relation to the theme of departure, as well as the form that this dialogue assumes across all three projects.

Departures runs until March 12 at 17h00 in the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg. The gallery is situated opposite the Town Hall in Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg. It is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10h00 to 17h00. Café Tatham is open on Saturdays. Safe parking with a car guard available. More information on 033 392 2801 or visit
