NEWS: Art Night; Overview of South African art in the nineties: Part III

This week, ArtThrob notes with sadness the passing of one of the country's most celebrated artists, Tito Zungu from KwaZulu Natal. A person of infinite charm and immense dignity, Zungu originally rendered his exquisite drawings in coloured ink on envelopes for his fellow workers. These are now sought by museums worldwide. Virginia McKenny writes an obituary.



Karin Dando opens at the AVA as part of Art Night in Church Street, and the Greatmore Studio launches its opening exhibition.


The Goodman Gallery starts the year with new work from Durant Sihlali.


Advance notice on Redeye at the Durban Art Gallery.
