COLLECTION 2006 (article first published : 2006-11-29)

Collection 2006 is the title for this year’s much anticipated annual exhibition of carefully-selected artworks which opens at Durban’s Bayside Gallery at 12h00 on December 3.

Curator Sue Greenberg has chosen selected fine art prints from Kim Berman and ceramics from many of South Africa’s pre-eminent ceramicists. Included here are Ian Garrett, Bea Jaffray, Karen Kotze, Hennie Meyer, John Newdigate, Karen Sinovich, Clive Sithole, Clementina van der Walt, Evette Weyers, Martha Zettler and The Potter’s Shop.

Kim Berman says of her work: “In the past, I have used earth, fire and sky as metaphors for social disparities. Water is a new element for me. My struggle and discomfort with the unfamiliarity of this element reflects my growing dismay at the lack of action around the exploding pandemic of HIV in Southern Africa.”

Also being exhibited will be fabric work by Zimeleni, a self-help women’s group working under the direction of Leonie Malherbe and hand-crafted jewellery by young Durban designers.

Collection 2006 runs through to mid-January. Gallery hours from 10h00 to 16h00 daily. More information on 031 368 5547
