THE ART ROOM (article first published : 2004-11-2)

An exciting new gallery of South African fine art and craft, The Art Room, situated at 3A Chartwell Drive, Umhlanga Rocks, opened its doors at the end of September. Gallery owners, Clive and Margaret Mervis, plan to change the exhibitions frequently with a variety of interesting artworks.

“The opening exhibition features artworks by prominent contemporary visual satirist, Norman Catherine,” says Margaret Mervis, “with three oil paintings and a group of marvellous oil-painted wooden figurines as well as a selection of lithographs, silkscreens and etchings. Robert Hodgins - South Africa's “grand master of art” - has works featured on the opening exhibition, as does the internationally renowned artist, Willie Bester.”

The exhibition also features emerging artists such as Vuyisani Mgijima and Selwyn Pekeur as well as hand-blown glass designed by Liz Lacey, bronzes and ceramic art.

The Art Room is open daily from 09h30 to 17h00 as well as on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 3A Chartwell Centre, Chartwell Drive, Umhlanga Rocks. Contact 031 561 6762.
