d’Urban d’Art Exchange


the artSPACE durban Artists’ Choice Award 2013

Works by Andrew Verster

Join us at artSPACE durban for the second of our exciting art exchange exhibitions. This is an artist-orientated event; we will 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.

With our Artists’ Choice Award, only the participating artists have a 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.

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 winning piece!) and b) to vote for the best work on show. We want all artists to sign their works, but then have the signatures covered.

 The show will open at artSPACE durban on Monday 29th July; it is up for two weeks, so artists need to look carefully, and cast their vote by Thursday 8th August. The draw and award event is on Thursday, 8th August. All artists must be present to make their draw and collect their new work; and the three prizewinners must be present to receive their awards. No artist, no award! But remember: each participant will win/receive another artist's work (could be the winner, a known or unknown artist)!

At artSPACE durban we (the participating artists, that is) will thus vote in the artSPACE durban Artists’ Choice of 2013. Well done to the 2012 prize winners voted by the participants, Nicole Pletts, Julia Forman and Jane Digby. We love the fun everyone had (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!

There will be a cash bar and car guards at the opening and prize-giving nights.
