ART AL FRESCO (article first published : 2003-03-21)

The Midlands Meander Association amd the recently formed Zombeza Fine Arts and Crafts Advancement Group have combined efforts to offer art lovers an introduction to a host of previously unseen artistic talent in the Midlands Meander area.

The Zombeza group (“Zombeza” being isiZulu for “to meander with a purpose”) has already drawn together more than 40 fine artists and crafters living in the Meander area, proving the fact that fine art and craft is still at the core of this prime South African tourism destination.

The aim of Zombeza is to facilitate local exhibitions for these artists by arranging a number of art and craft events during the year and to arrange exhibition space on the Midlands Meander for those who have not previously exhibited their work locally.

Zombeza’s only criteria is that artists' work should be original, of a professional standard and have artistic merit. Zombeza will continue to search for artists and crafters, especially from disadvantaged communities, whose work warrants attention.

With the support of the Midlands Meander, Zombeza, has adopted an “all inclusive approach” to fine art and craft and would like to facilitate the exhibition of a greater diversity of art produced in the Meander area.

To launch this new intitiative, a fine art, craft and food extravanganza will be held from March 21 to 23. Art Al Fresco will take place on the rolling lawns of the Rawdons Hotel Estate at Nottingham Road in the midst of the scenic Midlands Meander. Entry to the daytime exhibitions is R5 per person. Tickets at the gate.
