Rather than sending out an e-vite featuring our customary, monthly Artist of the Month, we have chosen, this time, to invite our readers to view an exciting cyber group show of eight contemporary South African artists, under the title, Some South African Voices.

There is no particular theme linking the works of these artists, nor is there a common style or medium that unites them. Rather, we are showcasing these eight artists, whose works, in one way or another, emphasise their deep South African roots and commitment. Included are Willie Bester, Paul du Toit, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Sam Nhlengethwa, Selwin Pekeur, Sophie Peters, the ceramic artist, Yvette McGee and the Makhubele family, renowned for their fine examples of contemporary Tsonga-Shangaan beadwork.

The variety of works to be seen here is proof of how dynamic and innovative the contemporary South African art scene has become. "The new democratic circumstances of the mid-1990s," writes art consultant, Gilfillan Scott-Berning, "have allowed South Africans to acknowledge an individuality and to provide a new energy on a new stage, as it is not only the social, political and economic issues of apartheid that define us."

"The cultural isolation of the apartheid years," Scott-Berning adds, "has given way to the reality of social change and the real challenges and economics of everyday life."
