An exhibition of oil paintings of the South African landscape by Jannie van Heerden will be opened by Professor Johan Jacobs, Head of post graduate Studies University of Natal, at 17h30 on December 4 at The African Art Centre.

Jannie van Heerden has been involved with the African Art Centre since 1990. He is Deputy Chief Education Specialist for Arts and Culture in KwaZulu-Natal Education Department. He has tirelessly promoted Hlabisa basketweavers and rural and Zulu potters.

He has also organised and curated many exhibitions and is the co-author of Amagugu KwaZulu Zulu Treasures catalogue. He is currently writing a book on baskets of KwaZulu Natal.
