VULEKA ART (article first published : 2006-05-20)

Vuleka is the Xhosa word for 'open' and this year the prestigious national Vuleka Art Competition will be wider open than in the past. Any artist (18 years and older) who has not had a solo exhibition in the past three years may enter.

Hosted annually by The Arts Association of Bellville (Art.b) in conjunction with the financial services group Sanlam, the competition previously excluded all artists who have exhibited some of their work during the preceding three years.

Vuleka is aimed at encouraging creativity, innovation and adventurous art from all cultures. Selected artists from the competition will also participate in an exhibition in the Art.b Gallery, which is well-known for its versatile exhibition space.

Artists may enter any number of artworks in any of three categories, even all of them: Best painting in oil, water or acrylic; Best three-dimensional work; ceramics included, and Best work in another medium, including photography. Apart from that the best artwork overall will be selected.

For the overall winner a cheque of R7,000 and a return flight ticket to Paris are waiting. Prize money of R2,000 is at stake for each category winner. Last year Pamela Stretton was the overall winner with an exceptional installation Size Matters.

The closing date for entries is 13h00 on September 6, 2006. For brochures/particulars interested parties can contact Maxie Oosthuizen at 021 918 2301 or e-mail: maxie.oosthuizen@capetown.gov.za
