SASOL NEW SIGNATURES DURBAN WORKSHOP (article first published : 2008-04-24)

Sasol invites emerging South African visual artists to attend the Sasol New Signatures Competition workshop in Durban on April 29. Presented by the competition chairperson, Franci Cronjé, the workshop aims to help artists understand the competition philosophy, the judging process and provide advice on conceptualisation, display and presentation of works.

The workshop will take place on April 29 between 10h00 and 15h00 at artSPACE Durban

“We encourage all emerging artists interested in entering the competition to attend the workshop,” explains Franci Cronjé, who has been the chairperson of the Sasol New Signatures Competition since 2002. “Talent and hard work alone will not secure an artist a space at the competition exhibition. Considerable attention should also be paid to planning and presenting an entry. The workshops will provide practical insight to help young artists avoid some of the unnecessary mistakes that could detract from their works during the judging process.”

A permanent member of the selection and judging committee, Franci Cronje has been an artist and photographer since 1980 and has also worked as a television film maker, producing and directing inserts for local television. She is currently studying towards her PhD degree in Media Studies.

The competition is open to South African artists, 18 years and older, who have not yet held a solo exhibition (apart from academic purposes).

Attendance is free of charge and to reserve a place, bookings can be made through Nandi Hilliard on 012 346 3100. artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road, off Umgeni Road, Durban. More details and entry forms can be obtained from Nandi Hilliard (012 346 3100) and at www.artsassociationpta.co.za, or www.sasolsignatures.co.za.
