submitted by

The province’s foremost contemporary art gallery – the visionary 108 year old Kwa-Zulu Natal Society of Arts (KZNSA) Gallery in Durban’s Glenwood is proactively undergoing a process of extreme restructuring and radical transformation to ensure its future in a recessionary environment.

Anele Mhlahlo, a 21 year old young man, has grown up in Imizamo Yethu, an informal settlement in Hout Bay. He is a music student currently working towards his Teacher’s Licentiate Diploma through Trinity College of Music, London.

South African businesses continue to show their support of the local arts scene, with the staging of an exhibition of legendary South African artist Gerard Sekoto’s work, life and times. SONG FOR SEKOTO – Gerard Sekoto 1913-2013 will be presented at the Wits Art Museum (WAM) in Johannesburg from 26 April to 2 June 2013, in celebration of the centenary of the artist’s birth.
