(“Hot Lips” by Hugh Mbayiwa)

The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery is to host an exhibition by Hugh Mbayiwa titled Time and Again.

“Hugh Mbayiwa our Zimbabwean artist first came in to Elizabeth Gordon Gallery in 2002 when we had just moved the Gallery to 120 Florida Road. I invited him to join our Here We Are Now exhibition which we held to publicise our move,” says gallery owner, Joy Reynolds.

“His two paintings were the first to sell, and since then his popularity as an artist has soared, both with locals and with visitors who love his colourful, naïve depiction of rural African life.

“We then held a solo exhibition for Hugh in 2003 which proved a great success and launched him as one of our best-selling artists. His range of subject matter has found favour in homes and offices here in Durban, and we confidently introduced him to galleries in Johannesburg and Cape Town, where he has also had great success,” Reynolds adds.

Time And Again runs from September 7 at 18h00 to September 16. The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery is situated at 120 Florida Road. For further information phone 031 303 8133, fax 031 303 8136, email: or visit
