Currently running at artSPACE durban is a group exhibition titled Together Apart.

“When we are talking about living ‘together apart’ we are describing the lifestyle of two partners/siblings/relatives who do not necessarily live under one roof. Maybe what we are describing can be called a sort of tribe (n: a large group of related families who live in the same area and share a common language, religion, and customs),” says Karen Bradtke of artSPACE.

Together Apart is about two connected people with the same intense interest in art and creativity, but whose works might be different and, therefore, ‘cannot be put under one roof’, except during this exhibition!” she adds.

Participating artists are Chris de Beer & Marlene de Beer; Heather Pattenden & Mhairi Pattenden; Miranda Crooks & Nicholas Crooks; Karla Nixon & Dane Stops; Pascale Chandler & Claude Chandler;
Grace Kotze & Melody French, and Ian Calder & Nina Calder.

The exhibition ends on April 26, 2017. artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or

NB: The gallery will be closed on April 14 and 17 but will be open on April 15 (Saturday)
