DUT FINE ART STAFF EXHIBITION (article first published : 2006-09-3)

The Durban University of Technology Gallery will host an art exhibition by its Department of Fine Art lecturers who are all practicing artists. As part of their research, the lecturers publish their research regularly through visual art exhibitions.

“By exhibiting our work we are indicating to our students that we can lead by the example of our own practice,” says John Roome, Head of the Department.

Participating in this exhibition are Andries Botha, Greg Bye, Nkosinathi Khanyile, John Roome, Camilla Copley, Royal Gwala, Tony Starkey, Themba Shibase, Hennie Stroebel, Barry Truter, Bronwen Vaughan-Evans, Jan Jordaan and Nirmi Ziegler.

Old and new visual vocabularies abound as some artists have been in the art industry for many years such as Andries Botha, John Roome, Tony Starkey and Barry Truter. Then there is fresh blood with artists such as Themba Shibase and Bronwen Vaughan-Evans who have recently made their name familiar in the art scene as developing artists.

Collective conceptual ideas presented in one space, the artists exhibiting are from different backgrounds bringing together different artistic skills. Exhibiting ceramics, sculptures, prints, paintings and art installations, the intensity of research done preliminarily to the final product is made obvious by the integrity of each artist’s concept. The artworks are executed professionally, making each artwork unique. These artists explore many notions of identity through various means of investigating immediate spaces, geographical spaces, and human relationships in general.

The Department of Fine Art Staff Exhibition runs from September 11 at 18h00 to 22 at the DUT Gallery, Steve Biko Campus.
