Edendale Excels booklet

Edendale Excels, an exhibition to celebrate four artists from Edendale, near Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, shows some changes and developments in South African art. This introduction is an attempt at making learners aware of the diversity of issues tackled by these artists. The inclusion of Bhengu and Zondi in the academic syllabus demonstrates the value of their contribution to the changing South African Visual Arts Studies.
