NGEZANDLA ZETHU (article first published : 1999-12-3)

The Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg is always a-buzz with interesting exhibitions but at the moment, it’s positively bursting at the seams with a creative energy projected by the current exhibition, Echo Ngezandla Zethu Arts and Craft Bazaar.

Look no further for innovative gifts for Christmas or fun items to put away for birthday gifts or other special occasions throughout the year. Particularly striking were bird “paintings”, works by Sonia where she uses trimmed feathers to create her true-to-life images of well-known birds in leafy or flower-like surroundings. The clever and innovative use of sweet wrappers stitched onto a hessian backing creates an unusual mat. There are charming Christmas cards as well as interesting work in felt (including something that looked like an egg cosy!), jewellery, hand-painted textiles, wire work, ceramics and wooden sculptures – to name a few of the fascinating items on offer.

Echo Ngezandla Zethu Arts and Craft Bazaar continues until December 5 but you’d better get there fast because the work is moving very quickly!
