TREVOR MAKHOBA ART COMPETITION (article first published : 2004-11-3)

There's only two weeks left before submissions for the Trevor Makhoba Art Competition close. The competition is open to artists aged 18 and those working with the medium of paintings are reminded to submit paintings not bigger that 1 metre, using any medium like watercolour, acrylic, oil, powder paints, etc. The top three prizes are R5,000, R3,000 and R2,000.

This competition seeks to promote and cultivate the talent of young artist of KwaZulu Natal. It has been initiated to compliment the touring Retrospective exhibition on Trevor Makhoba that is to take place at the Durban Art Gallery later this year.

The BAT Centre wishes to honour the late Trevor Makhoba as one of KZN’s most important artists. It aims to provide a platform where artists from different training background can compete equally integrating different ideas in one spectrum.

“We envisage these kinds of projects to encourage artists to produce more artworks as competition aims to encourage development of painting skills amongst the artists of KwaZulu Natal,” says Nontobeko Ntombela of the BAT Centre. “Trevor was well known for his outstanding painting skills and authentic ideas found through the use of his subject matters. This is one of the criteria for artistis to consider - to produce something authentic and true to their own identities. We are looking for new ideas on any theme and conceptual, landscapes, figurative, abstract, pointilism, realistic paintings, etc are all welcomed for entry.”

Artists working in Pietermaritzburg region can collect application forms from the Tatham Art Gallery with submissions accepted only on November 15. Those working the region of Port Shepstone can collect and submit paintings to the Margate Art Museum from November 1 to 15. The Ulundi region can collect and submit paintings to the Indonsa Art Centre from November 1 to 15. North coast and Empangeni region can submit to the Empangeni Art Museum.

Application forms are available from any of the above venues as well as from the BAT Centre Trust website at www.batcentre.co.za
