Art for the table and to wear

2009-11-26 00:00

MIDLANDS Arts and Crafts Society (Macs) will be showcasing the work of local artists in two end-of-year ­exhibitions.

Art To Wear will feature work ranging from the predictable, the kind of thing you put on and forget about, to pieces that are more sculptural, ­extravagant, and push the boundaries of what can be worn in the ­traditional sense.

Many different media have been used and many of the pieces will take their place on walls while waiting to be put on a human body.

The Art To Wear exhibition will open on November 29 at 10.30 am. Join artists and other Macs members and their friends for refreshments.

The second exhibition will open a week later, on December 6, with the public showing starting at 11.30 am. The Banquet exhibition will include functional as well as decorative works used as table decoration in the widest sense.

It will also include real food, and visitors will be able to enjoy a Macs vegetarian buffet lunch, while looking at the art on display. Kirby McCall will provide gentle music. Lunch will cost R25.

Both exhibitions will be at the Macs Art House, 23 Haldane Road, corner of Ritchie Road, Pietermaritzburg. For further information phone 033 386 6500.
