Join artSPACE durban for the fourth of their exciting art exchange exhibitions.

"This is an artist-orientated event. We have fun and pay tribute to ourselves as artists. With most awards, the decision is made by a panel of judges and often strangely influenced and rather baffling,” explains Karen Bradtke, founder of artSPACE durban.

“With our Artists’ Choice Award, only the participating artists can vote for the best work on show. We believe this gives a respectful ear to you, our artists, so your voice and choice can be heard. This year we will have a Jury award a prize. The prizes on offer, besides the winners of the Artist’s Choice Award and the Jury Award, will be Lucky Draws of R750 and R250, and once again numerous lucky draw prizes. Last year we had gift vouchers from Classic Canvas, Spectrum, and Village Hardware,” she adds.

Each participating artist pays an entry fee of R200 and can collect an entry form and 40 x 20 cm canvas (one per person) from the gallery. Other media are welcome, but are required to fit into the size criteria. In this case, the entry fee will be less the canvas cost of R50, i.e. R150.

The theme of the exhibition is Pool.

The exhibition will open at artSPACE durban on October 15 and it is up for a week until October 22, so artists need to look carefully and cast their vote by 16h00 on October 20. The draw and award event is on October 20 at 18h00.
