In KwaZulu-Natal we worked at the Durban Art gallery. Here Charles Nkosi, Ezekiel Budeli and Lionel Davis were the guest artists, assisted by Athi Mongezeleli Joja. Our host was curator Musa Mncwabe, and education officer Witty Nyede participated in the lectures.
In this workshop the participants were shown some techniques of abstract painting and then used these collectively and individually using acrylic paint on canvas.
We were touched by the participation of a number of senior artists from
the Durban art community, including Thami Jali (print maker, ceramicist), Bongumenzi Ngobese (mixed media, 2010 Absa L’Atelier Award; Gerard Sekoto Prize Winner), Lindelani Ngwenya (sculptor and painter), Sbusiso Robert Duma (painter), Mondli Mdanda (sculptor) and Welcom Danca (painter).
