THE MARK GROUP EXHIBITION (article first published : 2007-02-26)

Running in the Schreiner Gallery at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg is The Mark Group Exhibition.

Originating in the life drawing classes run by the Midlands Arts and Crafts Society, The Mark Group has met regularly for the past three or four years. The core group, which draws from live models at a memberís home, meets with the expanded group at a community hall once a month.

The exhibition consists of drawings in various media, including pastel and water colour, all based on the human figure. It highlights the process of art-making and shows the journey of a group of artists travelling together.

The variety of creative backgrounds, such as painting, collage and fibre art from which the artists come, seem to influence the way they respond to a live model. Sessions are untutored, but group members comment freely on each otherís work. These consistent group experiences are subsequently used by individual artists to inspire further work in their respective fields.

The Mark Group Exhibition runs until March 11.
