Vula Amehlo Art is proud to present a visual art exhibition by 12 South African-based artists: 
Layziehound Coka, Rhona Gorvy, Jemmiro (Mozambique), Lehlogonolo Mashaba, Tshepo Masopa, Neo Matloga, Ephia Mmbidi, Pebofatso Mokoena, Petros Mwenga (Zimbabwe), Mongezi Ncaphayi, Bambo Sibiya, and John Taouss Tuyisabe (Rwanda/Uganda) 

Their wonderful and inspiring artworks include oil and acrylic paintings, charcoal and pastel drawings, ink drawings on canvas, collage (from recycled prints, traditional African textiles, etc.), original prints (etching, drypoint, linocut, aquatint, screenprints, monoprint) and multi-media work. All of these artists have participated in successful shows in South Africa and the United States (Washington and New York), as well as other countries.

This show is dedicated to Rhona Gorvy, a life-long artist and humanitarian, who sadly passed away at the age of 94 in July 2016 – a huge loss to the South African arts community.
