Serving Msunduzi through the Visual Arts
KZN Matric Art 2009
Main Exhibition Room
Thursday 19 March to Sunday 10 May 2009
The KZN Matric Art Exhibition is always a popular event on the Gallery's calendar. The core of the exhibition is made up of works selected for this purpose by the KZN Department of Education from the previous year's Matric Examination. In this Gallery we add works from all the local independent schools.
The exhibition is an opportunity for teachers and learners to compare new and old techniques and ideas. Besides conventional landscapes, portraits, still lives, prints and sculptures, there are usually experiments with found objects, installations, electronic media and some other surprises. Part of the requirements for each artist is a journal showing the process of art-making.
The Tatham Art Gallery holds an Art Collection that contains significant British and French artworks dating back to the 18th century. Its South-African art collection is focused on, but not exclusive to, the art of KwaZulu-Natal.
The Tatham Art Gallery hosts a range of Art Exhibitions. These include traveling and researched exhibitions as well as exhibitions initiated by the Gallery and compiled from the collection.
