RED EYE @RT PURCHASES (article first published : 1999-11-2)

On the first Friday of every month (November 5 and December 3 from 18h00 to 20h00), hundreds of young people head for the Durban Art Galleryís Red Eye @rt Evening where they are treated to a programme of challenging and innovative art in all disciplines. Itís not just a fun ďartyĒ party but a serious initiative by the Friends of the Durban Art Gallery to introduce the under-40ís to what the DAG has to offer. Proceeds from Red Eye @rt entrance fees go towards acquiring new works for the gallery.

An exciting new purchase by the Red Eye @rt collective is Barcode by Langa Magwa who has a degree in Fine Arts from Technikon Natal where he is currently working towards a Masters Degree. The work is mixed media on goatskin and is a self-portrait exploring his identity. On November 25 at 13h00, Langa Magwa will talk about his work Bar Code 1998 at 13h00.

The Red Eye @rt proceeds continue to support a weekly art class in Umlazi Library run by Clement Dube.

The Friends have recently purchased a portrait Untitled by George Msimang and Boy Story Altarpiece: Fish by Brendan Bell. A joint purchase with the Natal Arts Trust was Erotic Interiors by Andrew Verster.
