Two new exhibitions celebrating women artists on show at artSPACE durban

 

Opening at artSPACE durban, 3 Millar Road, Durban on Saturday, October 1, is the group exhibition, Femergy, which places worldly issues under a female lens. The exhibition runs until October 14.

This year has been dominated by a series of explorations of the expressive and humanistic, depiction of issues that have affected most of the female third year Durban University of Technology fine art students.

This collection of work looks at identity, environmental and gender issues. The interest in non-traditional media is very evident on the works that have been chosen. As a group, the third year art students have found that not much of the art they study focuses on young female artists. They wanted to delve into this.

Participating in the exhibition are: Alka Dass, Amy Walker, Bukelwa Vuyolwetu Ndakisa, Carla Foo, Chadre Solomon, Jessica Forster, Malinda Cebekhulu Ngcobo, Mandisa Mngadi, Nondumiso Msenti, Nokuphila Gwala, Tusani Mngomezulu, and Yasmin Dadabhay.

 

In the Corridor visitors to artSPACE can view an exhibition titled Friday Friends, which features the work of Ann Waterson, Beulah van Rooyen,  Anna Viljoen,  Marie Mansfield,  Hazel Nunes, and  Brenda Pratt.

All are members of USCAA (the Upper South Coast Art Association), which paint together on a Friday at a local community hall.
