HAPPY NEW YEAR! (article first published : 2005-12-31)

As we zoom into the new year – whatever happened to 2005, it surely passed through in record time? – I would personally like to thank all artSMart readers for their support and interest in the site and thereby the arts in KwaZulu-Natal.

I carefully watch the statistics each week and we have risen from an average of 25,000 hits a week at the beginning of the year, to 30,000 mid-year and, as we come to the end of 2006, the figure is in the region of 35,000 a week.

Considering the identity of those sourcing information on the site, it seems that artSMart is a valuable and viable research tool. This is good news as it means that the work of the province’s arts practitioners is being recognised on a wider scale.

My heartfelt thanks are due to Colin Muller who designed the site and keeps it in pristine condition.

Thanks are also due to artSMart’s regular contributors and to the Mercury and Witness newspapers for allowing artSMart to carry reviews by Billy Suter and Margaret von Klemperer respectively.I wish you all the best for 2006 and may the arts in KZN go from strength to strength!

I wish you all the best for 2006 and may the arts in KZN go from strength to strength!

Caroline Smart, Editor of artSMart.
