Bouchard Finlayson is inviting entries for the 2019 Tollman Bouchard Finlayson Art Award as part of the Hermanus FynArts Festival. The Tollman family, owners of the Bouchard Finlayson Wine Estate, have long been great supporters of the arts in South Africa and are sponsoring the competition for the sixth consecutive year.
This unique national art competition awards a first prize of R20 000, second prize of R10 000, and two merit prizes of R5 000 each. The theme this year is ‘Harmony’ and artists are invited to submit their work in a tondo (round) format with a maximum diameter of 60 cm, including the mount or frame.
A variety of media will be accepted including paper, canvas, board, perspex, fabric, embroidery, collage, mixed media, photography, digitally/mechanically-produced and photo-based works. The deadline for entries is Friday 17 May 2019.
Once the winners have been announced, the works of between 50 and 60 finalists will be for sale and on display in the Bouchard Finlayson cellar as the ‘Tollman Bouchard Finlayson Barrel Head Exhibition’.
