2009-03-18

 
 The 24th Annual ABSA L'Atelier Art Awards winners of the central region were recently announced at the Johannes Stegman Gallery at the University of the Free State (UFS). Tax-C, an earthenware sculpture by Helena de Waal, ceramic lecturer at Motheo College in Bloemfontein, was selected as the best artwork for the central region. Other winning artworks were Memorial of Memories by Pauline Gertruida Gutter, The Disciple by Itumeleng Benette Moloto and Possession Walkway Interior by Marguerite Elizabeth Visser. The ABSA L'Atelier Art Awards Competition is South Africas most prestigious art competition. The competition is held annually for artists between the ages of 21 and 35 and it aims to recognise South Africa's young and upcoming artists and to afford them the opportunity to develop their skills abroad. Eleven prizes are awarded and the overall winner receives R100 000 in total from ABSA as well as a return air ticket to Paris, France. Pictured is Ms Helena de Waal with the winning artwork, Tax-C.
