Lifestyle asked up-and-coming celebrity chef Nazira Moosa of the lifestyle brand, Zira, to create Christmas breakfast, lunch and supper tables with the goodies at the gallery
Many of us have family dispersed across the country and indeed the planet, so if you can’t be together for that all-important Christmas lunch, why not send something special in your place. The KZNSA Gallery has a variety of proudly South African, tableware to choose from.
BUZZART 2015, the Christmas Fair at the KZNSA Gallery in Glenwood, opens at 5pm on Friday and runs until January 17.
All of the arts and crafts are produced in KwaZulu-Natal and range from jewellery, textiles and Christmas decor to lighting and fashion – clothing, shoes, bags and accessories.
Angela Shaw, the gallery’s director of retail and craft development says also among the gifts and collectables are Christmas and back-to-school stationery, wirework, beadwork, ceramics, art and more.
“We’ve famously couriered our goods across the country and world as it’s always authentic and of a high standard,” says Shaw.
“Makers to look out for this year are: Elppag Fashion, AAArt Textiles, Usisi Wirework and jewellery, Zulu Beadwork Project, Zimele, Sthenjwa Luthuli and Everaldo Matonse prints, Ifundiso wirework, Congo Rose, Rootz shoes and bags, A Love Supreme stationery, Amanda Laird Cherry and Holmes Brothers fashion, plus many more.”
BUZZART special projects this year are the Ceramic Mug and Bowl exhibition and the Art Block Project.
Local ceramic artists have made original and functional bowls, mugs and ceramic homeware for a massive exhibition that will fill the Park Gallery.
Local visual artists working in all mediums have created work on standard 30x30cm ply blocks supplied by KZNSA.
There are more than a hundred submissions with many renowned artists participating.
Also on show is a selection of collectable art from Arts for Humanity with prestigious South African artists’ work available in a silent auction.
Artists include Sue Williamson, Diane Victor and Mduduzi Xakaza.
