Exchange 2017 @ artSPACE durban
Dear Artists of
Durban and Surrounds,
Join us at artSPACE durban for the sixth of our 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, but 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.
Prizes include: Artist’s Choice Award of R1000, Lucky Draws
of R500 and R250 and some lucky draw prizes and vouchers.
How it works:
Each participating artist will pay an entry fee of
R200 and collect a 30 x 30 cm canvas (1 per person) from the gallery from
Friday 4th August 2017. Other media are welcome, but are required to
fit into the size criteria and needs to be able to be and ready to be hung. In
this case, the entry fee will be less the canvas cost of R50, i.e. R150.
The Theme: ‘Border(s)’
In terms of
definition, the obvious one is the border between two countries, but could also
be the border to the edge of a space or knowledge. It is also used in textile
as a strip or even in a social context as in “bordering on an insult”.
Each artist on entering agrees to:-
a) take part in the draw that will see each artist
take home one piece of work by another participating artist (you may draw the
b) vote for their favourite work on show
Participating in the exhibition:
1) gives you the right to vote for the artwork of
2) guarantees you an original artwork in exchange for
3) gives you a chance to receive one of the cash
prizes, vouchers or lucky draws
Each artist must sign their works, but the signatures will
be covered or you could sign on the reverse.
Entries must be delivered to the gallery by latest 4pm
on Thursday 14th of September. The exhibition will open at artSPACE
durban on Saturday, 16th September and it is up for 1 week. Voting will close at 4pm on the 21st September with the Awards Evening starting at
Participants do not have to be present at the Awards
Evening, but may nominate someone to make their draw, collect their new work
and/or receive their awards. Remember: each participant will win/receive another
At artSPACE durban we (the participating artists, that
is) will thus vote in the artSPACE durban Artists’ Choice of 2017. We love the
fun everyone has (especially first time exhibitors), and the discernment of the
artists in voting, and we really love the dissemination of the art – that every
single piece goes home with someone. So, cut loose….Let rip….Have fun.
