WASTEART 2004 (article first published : 2004-05-30)

Enviroserv has announced that 13 top South African artists will be participating in the inaugural EnviroServ WasteArt 2004 Expo.

Running from June 23 to 27 June at Nelson Mandela Square (previously Sandton Square), in Johannesburg, this five day art event is set to showcase not only artists and crafters exhibiting their wares made from recycled waste materials but also the works of 13 of South Africa’s top artisans.

These are Walter Oltmann, Richman Buthelezi, Retief van Wyk, Jan van der Merwe, Carla Wasserthal, Wilma Cruise, Antoinette Murdoch, Dianne Victor, Gordon Froud, Bongi Dlomo, Patrick Mautloa, Fiona Kirkwood and Stephen Maqashela. Fiona Kirkwood is a Durban based fibre artist.

In a generous display of support for emerging artist and art entrepreneurs in South Africa, the leading artists will produce unique pieces made from waste. These works will be auctioned and the proceeds will be placed into a Trust Fund to assist in developing emerging artists in South Africa.

All art lovers are called to visit the event to witness not only the abundance of talent in local communities who are utilising waste material to create beautiful displays and functional art but also to participate in the exciting auction of top-notch works by renowned artists.

For event information contact Samantha van Rensburg on 011 884 7700 or visit www.wasteart.com
