YOUTH ART (article first published : 1999-05-25)

The National Creative Arts Youth Festival is full of energy, colour and vibrant images. Running at the Technikon Natal Art Gallery until June 4, itís well worth a visit. There are works from the `tiniesí at pre-primary schools right up to entries from those who qualified for the under 21 age limit on January 1.

What impresses is the variety of mediums involved. Some of the clay pottery is very well-produced, there are some excellent fabric pieces and the quality of drawing is good. In the middle of the exhibition space is a large wire gumboot, a sculpted dragonfly seemingly hovers on a pedestal and many portraits watch you with their eyes, obviously the result of a self portrait class! General consensus of a favourite work at the opening of the exhibition was a delicious little cat that looks as if itís dressed in one of those striped woolly jumpers well-meaning grannies make for their loved ones, using up all the scraps of wool!

The Technikon Natal Art Gallery is situated on the Berea campus in Mansfield Road. It is only open on weekdays and closes at lunchtime on Fridays.
