The University of Northwest, NWU Gallery will host exhibitions titled THIS IS ME Group exhibition at the NWU Botanical Gardens Gallery 27th of April 2023- the 7th of June 2023.


‘THIS IS ME’ is a visual arts commissioning and artist development programme that is designed for recent graduates and artists that have been practising professionally for over 2 years, living and working in the Northwest. It is a 4-month programme that unfolds and extends the subject matters about identity, expression, independence and equality. This programme is an opportunity to define self, to create new works of art within the stated subject focus areas and the expansion of one’s portfolio, professional profile and experience through mentorship, business in the arts facilitations and a group exhibition.

‘THIS IS ME’ Group exhibition culminates from a 4-month programme that features North West-based artists who practice in the disciplines of drawing, painting, photography and mixed media. The common thread in the artists’ works of art, shows the essence of self that reflects and attaches itself to the relatability of the subjects that are an integral part of their everyday lives. The splendour in this is the different methods and mediums used for this artistic presentation.

The exhibition alludes to the opportunity to experience new emerging artists that stem from:

A province that is still establishing its art landscape, presenting rough diamonds that continue their journey of polishing and refining their skills and signatures. These 12 artists are showcasing 2-4 of their commissioned work in which they’ve invested time, passion and talent into, with the yearning to share their message with you.

Featured Emerging Artists include Tshegofatso Segotso, RethabileWeevirs, KoketsoTube, Evodia Selwane Melamu, Thabang Rampai, Nkuly Nkosi, Goitseone Mokonoto, Amogelang Ngake, Laura Molokomme, Zawadi Mashego, Thuso West Modikela, and Justice Wander.
