Akulahlwa mbeleko ngakufelwa (Don’t despair in adversity) is the title of an exhibition opening in the Tatham Art Gallery’s Schreiner Gallery on October 14 at 11h00.

This exhibition presents a collaboration between Muzi Ndlela and Sibusiso Mvelase, who both had the unique opportunity of attending a special art course at the University of KwaZulu Natal this year. Their themes revolve around ancestral beliefs.
