ARTSPACE DURBAN NEWS (article first published : 2008-01-23)

artSPACE durban is the collection point for KZN again this year for the ABSA L'Atelier Art Award, which is a competition for 18- 35 year olds. The collection dates are from March 3 to 7 and judging will take place on March 14.

As a run up to the 2008 PPC Cement Young Concrete Sculptor Awards to be held later in the 2008, aspiring artists "young in the art of sculpting" will have the opportunity of attending one of a series of workshops to be held at venues around the country. The workshops will be presented by members of PPC Cement's technical team and will cover some of the technical aspects of working with cement, lightweight concrete, pigments, colourants and extenders. Delegates will gain both theoretical and practical knowledge of working in this medium.

The PPC workshop held at artSPACE durban takes place on May 27 from 09h30 for 10h00 to 15h00. Each workshop can accommodate 30 people on a first-come-first-served basis and bookings can be made through Nandi Hilliard at the Association of Arts Pretoria on 012 346 3100 or 083 288 5117. The cost per person attending is R60 which is payable to the Association of Arts Pretoria.

And again artSPACE durban will be the collection point for KZN for the 2008 Sasol New Signatures competition. The gallery will receive works on July 2 and 3 and selection will take place on July 8 (artists to collect on July 9).

In the run up to the Sasol New Signatures competition, a workshop will be held at artSPACE durban and 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. The date and time for the workshop is: April 29, 09h30 for 10h00 to 15h00.
