At the close of this year, ArtThrob wishes all its readers very happy holidays. Thank you for your support during 1999, for your news, views, images and letters. Please keep them coming. Say goodbye to '99 by watching artists 'wrap the world' at the Rembrandt in Jo'burg, or 'looking like someone who cares' at the pm inc. art event in Cape Town. The New Year in Cape Town will open with a bang with a New York/South African all-woman show, 'One Night Stand' at the Joao Ferreira Fine Art, and a solo show from Dorothee Kreutzveldt at The Castle.
