Running in the Main Gallery at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg until mid-April is an exhibition entitled Our Choice.

Our Choice is an eclectic exhibition of art works selected from the Tatham Art Gallery’s permanent collection by the people who are currently working at the Gallery. Both full time staff, and volunteers who serve on the Board of Trustees and its Committees, have been invited to participate.

Some of the art works displayed have been in storage for many years, others are old favourites. Displayed with each art work is the name of the person who chose it, and a motivation for their choice. This could be a favourite work from the collection, or one that reminds the person of something. It may even be a work that is disliked for a certain reason. Texts vary from short sentences to longer explanations, and all of these contribute to the charm and magic of this exhibition of personal choices.

There will be a Walkabout of Our Choice facilitated by the Tatham’s Education Officer on February 14 from 14h00 to 15h00. Entrance is free and all are welcome.

Our Choice runs until April 19, 2020 at 17h00.

The Tatham Art 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
