ARTFLUX 2013  |  1 June to 4 July  |  East Gallery
The Artflux 20 3rdTeen exhibition showcases a selection of artworks by youths from schools coordinated by the Tshwaga Cluster, Gauteng Department of Education. The exhibition is part of the Pretoria Art Museum’s Youth Month celebration and its Education and Development Programme, which aims to make the visual arts accessible to everyone.


LANDSCAPE PRINTS  |  Until 29 May  |  East Gallery
In this exhibition we find landscapes from the permanent collection, made from different printmaking techniques such as etching, linocut, silkscreen and lithography. The word landscape derives from the Dutch landschap, originally meaning a patch of cultivated ground, which later came to mean an image. The word entered the English language at the beginning of the 17th century, purely as a term for works of art. Landscape art is a term that covers the depiction of natural scenery with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.
ABSTRACT AND SEMI-ABSTRACT ART  |  Until July  |  North Gallery and Henry Preiss Hall
A large selection of abstract and semi-abstract artworks ranging from the early 1960s up to 2001, including artists such as Larry Scully, Anthony Nkotsi, Kenneth Bakker, George Boys, Sidney Goldblatt, Dirk Meerkotter and Cecily Sash.
A STORY OF SOUTH AFRICAN ART  |  Until July  |  Albert Werth Hall
This selection of artworks from the permanent collection of the Museum briefly reviews South African art.

The exhibition is based on the secondary school syllabus and artworks are rotated regularly.

A selection of ceramics is on display, representing the development of studio ceramics and the work of traditional rural potters of South Africa over the past 30 years. Newly acquired ceramic pieces are added throughout the year.
