FNB CRAFT NOW 2006 (article first published : 2006-04-8)

FNB Craft Now and the Craft Council of South Africa invite all craftspeople to enter the FNB Craft Now 2006 Exhibition to be held at the KZNSA Gallery in Durban, from July 20 to August 13.

First National Bank (FNB) has been a proud partner of the Craft Council of South Africa since 1995. Through this partnership, the FNB Craft Now has become the most prestigious exhibition of its kind in South Africa, attracting the best craft from all sectors of the craft community, both individuals and groups. This year the exhibition takes place from July 20 to August 13 at the KZNSA Gallery in Durban.

The Craft Council is looking for exciting, innovative work that reflects a celebration of craft. This includes cutting edge, contemporary designer wares that show where South African craft is today. Products must be made mainly by hand using traditional or contemporary skills and the quality of the workmanship must be very high. Products should have reference to South African culture, environment or social structure, thus creating an "African Style". The work must not have been previously exhibited.

Selection for the exhibition will be from photograph or e-mail photographs (not slides) and the work must be well photographed so the image can be seen clearly. The photographs, entry fees and forms must reach the CCSA on, or before, May 20, 2006.

No late entries will be accepted.

Successful entrants will be advised by letter when their work must arrive in Durban and all details regarding delivery will be included in the letter of acceptance. The selectors' decision is final and the selectors have the right to withdraw any work from the Exhibition that does not meet expectations. The entry fee is R20 per item entered by CCSA members (R25 per item for non-members).

This year there is a new exciting addition to the FNB Craft Now Exhibition. The sponsors, FNB will include a prestigious auction after the exhibition. The 20 best pieces, which will include the work of the prizewinners, selected by the Award Judge will be sent up to Johannesburg for auction. A Merit Award Certificate will be given to craftspeople whose work is selected for the auction.

Entries close on May 20, 2006 and for further information and application forms call: Craft Council Of South Africa on 011 834 9569 or e-mail: eunicem@craftcouncil.co.za
