SASOL NEW SIGNATURES (article first published : 2007-04-5)

Sasol invites emerging South African visual artists to attend the Sasol New Signatures Competition workshop in Durban on April 1.

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.

“We encourage all emerging artists interested in entering the competition to attend the workshop. 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,” explains Franci Cronjé. “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.”

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

KwaZulu-Natal based artists are invited to submit one or two art works at artSPACE Durban, 3 Millar Road, off Umgeni Road, Durban on June 5 or 6 between 10h00 and 16h00. Internet entries may be submitted from May 2 to June 6 at www.sasolsignatures.co.za

This year’s competition carries total prize money of R100,000, comprising an overall first prize of R60,000, a runner-up award of R15,000 and five merit awards of R5,000 each. The winners will be announced at the opening of the competition exhibition at the Pretoria Art Museum on August 1 2007.

The Sasol New Signatures Competition workshop will take place on April 18 between 10h00 and 13h00 at artSPACE Durban, 3 Millar Road, off Umgeni Road, Durban.

Attendance is free of charge and to reserve a place, bookings can be made through Nandi Hilliard on 083 288 5117 or on email at artspta@mweb.co.za

More details and entry forms can be obtained from Nandi Hilliard on 012 346 3100 or on www.artsassociationpta.co.za or www.sasolsignatures.co.za
