The Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg will host a walkabout of Magic from the Midlands on November 13, 2021, between 10h00 and 11h30 in the Schreiner Gallery. The walkabout will be conducted by artists whose work is on display, and by artists who knew those who are no longer with us.

Booking is essential, as space is limited due to COVID-19 protocols.

Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands is home to many well-known and acclaimed artists, and this exhibition is a celebration of art works by some of these local artists, and honours a few who are no longer with us. The Magic from the Midlands exhibition is varied, and includes paintings, prints, sculpture, beadwork, ceramics and fibre works drawn from the Gallery's permanent collection.

During the course of the exhibition, artists are invited to come into the Gallery to talk about the works on exhibit. These Personal Perspectives will be recorded and placed on the Gallery website and Facebook page.
