The Tatham Art Gallery hosts a range of Art Exhibitions. These include travelling and researched exhibitions as well as exhibitions initiated by the Gallery based on works in the permanent collection.

A major function of the Tatham Art Gallery is to display art. This is accomplished through the organizing and hosting of temporary exhibitions and ongoing changes in the permanent display areas.

2015 Tatham Art Gallery Exhibitions

The Art of Democracy: 20 Years of Collecting

For the past twenty years the growth of the Gallery's permanent collection has been significantly affected by significant change in South Africa. Political, social, and economic shifts have impacted on the Gallery's acquisitions policy, as have developments in art making and theory.

Generous Friends

For the last 30 years, the Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery (FOTAG) have generously assisted the Gallery to acquire works for its permanent collection.

Contrasts: Vessels and Containers

Throughout human history, people from different cultures, from kings to commoners, have used a variety of containers for domestic purposes.

Juxtaposition: style - metaphor - format

This selection from the Gallery's permanent collection includes portraits, landscapes and still-life. Art works in different media and from different times, both European and South African, hang side by side to provide a juxtaposition of style, metaphor and format.

The South African Landscape

This selection of landscape paintings from the Gallery's permanent collection features a number of South African artists.

The Art of Democracy: 20 Years of Collecting

This exhibition will close in September and reopen in December this year. A selection of art works from the permanent collection acquired and/or accessioned since 1994 is displayed in all areas of the Gallery. These art works are identified by coloured labels.
