SASOL NEW SIGNATURE 2014 AWARDS | Until 19 October | Henry Preiss Hall, North and South Galleries
The annual competition, established by the Association of Arts Pretoria in the late 1960's, is the longest running national art competition in South Africa and this year Sasol celebrates its 25th anniversary as a lead sponsor of the Sasol New Signatures art competition.

PHOTOGRAPHY | Until 7 September | East Gallery

The exhibition features photographs from the Pretoria Art Museum’s permanent collection – from traditional film photography to modern digital print.

 Arguments against photography being an art form date back more than a century. Many photographs have been recognised for their high artistic value, with the camera used like a painter’s brush and artistic merit attributed to factors such as composition, exposure, tonal values, ingenuity and creativity. Well-known photographers such as Zwelethu Mthetwa, Constance Stuart-Larrabee, David Goldbaltt, Ismail Farouk and Nataniël Stern are included in the exhibition.


INTERNATIONAL PRINTMAKING | 9 September to 23 November | East Gallery

A selection of artworks from the Pretoria Art Museum’s international printmaking collection will be on display. This selection includes works of well-known 20th century artist like Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore.
