Bheki Gumbi from Nongoma with one of his painted wood sculptures of a rugby player. Gumbi is one of the artists from rural KwaZulu-Natal exhibiting at the Jack Heath Gallery in Ridge Road in a celebration of rural art, including basketware, carved spoons, headrests and sculptures. Opening the exhibition on Tuesday evening, Juliette Leeb-du Toit of the Centre for Visual Art on the Pietermaritzburg campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal said that one of the main aims of the exhibition is to expose the largely unsung rural artists to a broader market. The exhibition runs until May 22. Gallery hours are 8.30 am to 4 pm on weekdays.
