Between January and March 2009, the Gallery held an exhibition of artworks by selected women artists of KwaZulu-Natal in the Schreiner Gallery, titled Into the Light. This display included some of the women, black and white, who worked in the province during the early and middle years of the 20th Century.

The present exhibition is a further display of works by selected women artists of KwaZulu-Natal, dating from the late 20th Century to the present. They are also from different cultural groups, but their works, which are often experimental, are better known to the public and more often exhibited than the previous group.

Collectively these images contribute to a rich experience of cross-cultural art in KwaZulu- Natal.
