This year, the popular KZN Midlands Matric Art Exhibition opens earlier than usual. This means that most of the artworks on display come from learners who matriculated in 2012. The Gallery's education staff visited all local schools that teach art for Matric to see final exhibitions. Teachers were asked to keep some of the best artworks and visual diaries from 2012 aside for the Gallery selection, which takes place with the help of an invited selector.
- Closes Sunday 19 May at 17h00
From time to time, as funds become available, the Gallery is able to purchase new artworks. It's important to show the public who contribute to the funds what has been acquired

From the Director's Desk
One of the things which make our working lives exciting is working on special projects. I have worked consistently during the past year on a retrospective exhibition for the artist, Diamond Bozas, which will open in the Gallery in early August this year, the month in which he turns 90.
