Online-Only Auction, 22 - 29 November 2021

About the Session

The Fabulous Picture Show  is an annual fundraising auction held by the Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery, to raise funds for the purchase of new art works for the Tatham Art Gallery permanent collection.  It is essential for an art museum collection to grow on a regular basis, in order to reflect the dynamic nature of South African artistic production.  Without a purchasing budget and ongoing acquisitions, the collection would remain stagnant.
