The KZNSA is a member-based organisation that has been in existence for over a centuary. In this time, it has grown from a non-formal association of artists (who met to discuss, exhibit and market their work) to a public-benefit organisation that today is home to one of the leading contemporary art gallerys in South Africa, a shop that stocks important local and national craft and design, and a number of outreach programmes that sees the love for and benefit of arts and culture nutured with a range of communities, especially young people.
The cornerstone of the KZNSA is its member base from which, annually, the KZNA council and working group committees are selected. In appreciation for the support by its consituency, the KZNSA hosts an annual member’s exhibition, presenting members with an opportunity to produce and exhibit artwork according to a theme. This year, the theme is THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. Expect an eclectic and exciting mix of submissions from some of the province’s leading professional artists, and also work from emerging young talents.
