Time running out for artists

It is nearly time for Free State artists to be brave, be bold and enter the Phatshoane Henney New Breed Art Competition 2018.

Now in its third year, this visual arts competition, aimed at dis­covering new and upcoming Free State artists, can be entered.

Of the R100 000 in prize money, R50 000 will be awarded to the winner, R20 000 to the runner-up and R10 000 each to two merit award winners, as well as R10 000 to the artist who wins the public choice award.

At the official competition launch in March this year, Les Cohn of Art Source South Africa stressed that even artists who enter but do not win, could still have their entry selected by the competition judging panel to be exhibited as part of the public competition exhibition at Oliewenhuis.

“This is a prestigious profile builder, as only artists mature in their careers are usually selected to have their works shown in a museum,” said Cohn.

The public choice award in­creases the exposure the selected artists receive, even further.

The public will be able to vote for their favourite artist on the official competition website (www.phinc.co.za/art) and thereby determine a winner.

“All this allows you to engage professionally with the art industry and to get your work seen by the public, selectors and art experts alike, not to mention buyers and collectors – all of which creates greater public awareness of you as an artist. So, grab this opportunity and make sure you enter.”

Artists must note that a complete entry (a work, a completed and signed entry form and supporting information) must be submitted at the reception of the Oliewenhuis Art Museum from 10:00 to 16:00 on any day until Sunday (16/09).

No entries will be received after this date, or outside the hours of 10:00 and 16:00.

The entry form is available at www.phinc.co.za/art and artists can dial 051-011-0525 (ext. 611) for queries regarding the submission of entries.
