Local Hilton artist, Jenny Hallowes, sees her art making as a road she is travelling, a work in progress. Her exhibition Lifescape represents this life journey.
Her paintings and drawings are glimpses of her experiences, such as the livestock, river and rugged terrain on the farm Fisherman’s Bend,where her father did all his farming on horseback..

This gallery was recently repainted and an exciting new display, which spans more than three centuries, is in place. Through a selection of art works by British, French and South African artists, viewers are invited to explore a range of narratives around the history of painting, the geography of time and place, and the history of migrations.
- Perimeter Gallery
In August this year a comprehensive new book on the history of Southern African ceramics, Scorched Earth, by Wendy Gers,was launched at the Gallery. The book is available at the Tatham Shop.
- Ceramics Room
This display, selected from the Gallery’s permanent collection, features landscape paintings by South African artists. The paintings are as varied as the South African landscape, and show many different ways in which artists engage with their environment.
- Lorna Ferguson Room
From the Director's Desk
There is still time to catch Ben Nsusha’s retrospective exhibition, which closes on Sunday 11 September. Due to a cancellation we have extended the Lorna Peirson memorial exhibition until early November.
There is a small but significant link between these two shows. When Lorna began painting again after her retirement she founded the Richmond Art Group. In 1993 the group donated an etching to the Gallery, by none other than Ben Nsusha!
