If you are looking for a gift for a loved one this Christmas then I heartily recommend that you visit BUZZART15, which opens at the KZNSA Gallery in Bulwer Road, Glenwood, Durban, on Friday, November 27 at 5 pm and runs until Sunday, January 17, 2016.

Now a local only affair, with exciting makers in many disciplines, BUZZART is the destination for original gifts and collectable art and design in Durban.

Products include: jewellery, textiles, Christmas décor, lighting, clothing, shoes, bags and accessories, stationery for Christmas and back to school, wirework, beadwork, ceramics, art and design books, and original artworks.

Makers to look out for this year are: Elppag Fashion, AAArt Textiles, Usisi Wirework and jewellery, Zulu Beadwork Project, Zimele, Sthenjwa Luthuli and Everaldo Matonse prints, Ifundiso wirework, Congo Rose, Rootz shoes and bags, A Love Supreme stationery, Amanda Laird Cherry and Holmes Brothers fashion, plus many more.

BUZZART special projects this year are the Ceramic Mug and Bowl exhibition and the Art Block Project. Local ceramic artists have made original and functional bowls, mugs and ceramic homeware for a massive exhibition that will fill the Park Gallery.

Local visual artists working in all mediums have also created work on standard 30 x 30 cm ply blocks supplied by KZNSA. There are over a hundred submissions with many renowned artists participating – come early to get your favourite artist’s piece before they are sold out.

Also on show is a selection of collectable art from Arts for Humanity with prestigious South African artists’ work available in a silent auction. Artists include Sue Williamson, Diane Victor, Mduduzi Xakaza and Joseph Madisa.

Join the gallery at the opening on November 27 at 5 pm for drinks and snacks and sneak peak at the best on show in Durban this season.
