February 6, 2015 - Comments Off on CALL FOR PAINTING SUBMISSIONS: The Claims of the Land


The AVA would like to announce that it will be accepting submissions for a small curated painting exhibition titled ‘The Claims of the Land’. The exhibition which will run concurrently with a larger exhibition of the aerial photography work of Paul van Schalkwyk entitled ‘The Pristine Land’.

‘The Claims of the Land’ can be interpreted as broadly as artists wish but issues such as what claim we have to land, as well as what our intervention into the land demands of us, can be used as a point of departure. Inherent within this are ideas of local politics as well as broader environmental and ecological concerns.

Artists can submit, in the medium of paint, one work only. The size of the work can vary but should not be bigger than one square meter. All work must be submitted to the AVA Gallery by the 4 March 2015.

The work will be evaluated by our selection committee and curated into an exhibition for sale that will open on 24 March 2015. All work will be priced in consultation with our director and be sold with the usual AVA commission.
