VULEKA COMPETITION (article first published : 2007-07-22)

Calling all artists! If you are yearning to see the real Mona Lisa in the Musée du Louvre, stroll down the Champs-Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe or gaze down onto the city of Paris from the Eiffel Tower or Montmartre, etc. the first thing to do is to enter the 2007 Vuleka Art Competition.

By doing that you will stand a chance to emulate painter Marlise Keith from Cape Town who will soon depart for Paris on the free return flight she won in last year’s Vuleka competition.

Vuleka is the Xhosa word for ‘open’ and this prestigious national art competition is open to any artist (18 years and older) who has not had a solo exhibition in the past three years. There is but one proviso: Only original works of art completed during 2006/2007 may be entered.

Vuleka is hosted annually by The Arts Association of Bellville (art.b) in conjunction with the financial services group Sanlam. It is aimed at encouraging creativity, innovation and adventurous art from all cultures. Selected artists from the competition will also participate in an exhibition in Bellville’s art.b Gallery.

Artists may enter unlimited artworks in any one – or combination - of the categories. These include paintings in oil, water colour or acrylic; three-dimensional works; ceramics included, and works in any other medium, including photography.

Apart from a winner in each of these categories, the best artwork overall will be selected.

The overall winner will receive a cheque of R7,000 and a return flight ticket to Paris. Prize money of R2,000 is at stake for each category winner. The artists may also offer their works for sale.

The closing date for entries is September 19 at 15h00.

For brochures/particulars contact Maxie Oosthuizen at 021 918 2301 or e-mail: maxie.oosthuizen@capetown.gov.za.
