GARRET ARTISTS AT TATHAM (article first published : 2008-08-10)

Celebrating drawing for 20 years with Jeanette Gilks 1988 – 2008 is the title of the Garret Artists’ Retrospective Drawing Exhibition to run at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg from August 14.

The Garret Artists is a group of artists and art teachers, some of whom have worked under the guidance of Jeanette Gilks for the last 20 years.

“More transparent than painting, drawings can track a thought process, revealing flashes of feverish activity punctuated with gaps and pauses,” Jeanette Gilks explains. ”Drawings frequently explore essentially private, incomplete visions, unmoored from the constraints and restraints of `frames’.”

“Garret Artists exhibitions are consequently not (generally) selling exhibitions,” she adds. “Instead, they provide an opportunity for the public to gain insight into how drawn images can germinate and evolve. The aims of the workshops are therefore not to teach new skills per se but to explore some alternative approaches to drawing in order to liberate unforeseen visual and pictorial potential.”

The official opening on August 14 will be conducted at 18h00 by Joy Preiss. The exhibition closes on September 28. More information on 033 392 2801
