GEORGE NEWS - Three local artists, who have no connection to Scava, have volunteered their time to ensure absolute fairness at this year's Vibrant Visions Scava art competition, which takes place at the George Museum on Tuesday
11 August. A total of R10 000 prize money will be awarded in the different categories.
The South Cape Association of the Visual Arts (Scava) is thankful for the services of dedicated judges, said Chairman Ken Smith this week.
Ian Tainton has worked as an art teacher and print tutor for Strydom Gallery for 16 years and lately as full-time artist. He has his own Studio in George.
Sitythitlo Beza studied fine art at the University of Fort Hare and has worked as an art teacher at Thembalethu High School for seven years.
He is a full-time art educator.
In 1990 Bernard Roe was the founding chairman of the Sedgefield Art Society and served in that capacity over three years.
He has had a long association with both the visual arts and music. He is a part-time artist.
These three men are scrutinising every entry in the five categories of Landscape/Interior, Floral/Still Life, Portrait/Figure, Abstract/Experimental and Animal/Wildlife so as to select the best three paintings in each category. Fifteen awards will be given at the awards evening.
Eighty exhibits will be displayed within the Sayers Hall for public viewing and will be for sale from 12 to 27 August.
