VITA CRAFT NOW (article first published : 2000-05-16)

The FNB Vita Craft Now Millennium Awards Exhibition opens at the African Window Gallery, 149 Visagie Street, corner Bosman & Visagie Streets in Pretoria on July 16. This is the fourth FNB Vita national craft exhibition held in collaboration with the National Crafts Council of South Africa. The aim of both the regional and national FNB Vita Craft exhibitions is to build on the unique South African tradition and heritage and to promote public interest and appreciation in the various areas of the crafts.

The sponsors will encourage the creation of works of fine craftsmanship and design across all major craft disciplines such as wood, metal, fibre, glass and recycled materials. Craftspeople from all over South Africa were invited to submit works for this prestigious exhibition. Over 560 entries of a high standard were received, 250 of which were selected by the jury to go on exhibition. Prizes in several categories totalling R25,000 will be awarded.

In addition to the main exhibition, there will be two special displays of work by participants of workshops held recently by under the auspices of the National Crafts Council, sponsored by Telkom and the Handwerkskammer des Saarlanden. These will include innovative, contemporary jewellery and telephone wire designs.

The exhibition closes on August 25. More details from Wendy on tel/fax (011) 728-3070 or e-mail henwen@onwe.co.za
