This group exhibition will feature eight young emerging artists who are all part of the Education and Development Programme of the Pretoria Art Museum.

The participating artists include Noko Mello, Mary-Jane Letsoalo, Nalize Venter, Themba Msiza, Thato Seboko, Refilwe Phetla, Siphesihle Biyela and Eve Bodirwa.  These artists come from different backgrounds; they all have their own personal stories and “lived experiences” that they communicate through their art.  For most of these artists, technique and skill plays an important role in communicating ideas about their different life experiences.
