Tatham Art Gallery, Pietermaritzburg.

THE Tatham Art Gallery is hosting a lecture programme throughout April.

Alleyn Diesel (who has a PhD in Religious Studies) will present two more lectures to raise funds for buying stock for the Tatham Craft Shop. The first of these lectures will take place on Saturday, April 2 at 11am. The cost is R30.

Titled Felines and female divinities, the talk looks at how, since early human history, in many diverse countries, cats have been linked with strong, independent females. Goddesses from Inanna of Sumer, Cybele of Phrygia, the Goddesses of Minoan Crete, and many Egyptian cat goddesses bear witness to this phenomenon. Cats in more modern times still retain their ancient power and fascination.
