Bouchard Finlayson is inviting entries for the 2017 Tollman Bouchard Finlayson Art Award as part of the Hermanus FynArts Festival. The Tollman family, owners of Bouchard Finlayson, has long been great supporters of the arts in South Africa and is sponsoring this competition for the fourth consecutive year.
Artists are invited to submit their entries, in tondo format (circular – at a maximum of 60cm in diameter) under this year’s theme ‘Reflections’. The works of about 40 finalists will form the Tollman Bouchard Finlayson Barrel Head Exhibition that will be exhibited in the Hemel-en-Aarde wine estate cellar, where they will also be available for sale for the duration of the Hermanus FynArts festival (9 – 18 June 2016). The competition closes on 19 May 2017. Judges will include Stefan Hundt, curator of the Sanlam Art Collection; Michael Godby, Professor Emeritus of History of Art, UCT; and Lien Botha, artist, writer and curator. The winner will receive a cash prize of R20 000, followed by a second prize of R10 000, and two merit prizes of R5 000 each.
