Much needs to be said about my favorite gallery in town, the KwaZulu Natal Society of Arts (KZNSA). In the two times that I have been here, I have seen a number of excellent pieces created by talented local artists. Below are a few of my favorite works from the latest exhibit.
In addition to the impressive gallery, the KZNSA offers a host of exquisite paintings, crafts, and jewelry for sale at their gift shop. Each gift that a customer purchases comes with a short bio or article about the artist. Many of the featured artists began doing freelance work from a young age. A few of them unfortunately died young, but the gallery cherishes their legacy and the artwork they left behind. I am already so impressed by all of the artistic talents I have become acquainted with in South Africa thus far, and I can’t wait to see more great artwork soon!
