The Art Bank of South Africa’s annual exhibition of the best artwork by local artists is still open to the public for free viewing at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum.

Held for the second year in Bloemfontein, the exhibition will close on 3 May, having opened on 20 February.

The exhibition showcases a proudly South African collection of paintings. The theme is “Becoming: what is and what is not”.

This is a national programme of the Department of Arts and Culture and is hosted by the National Museum Bloemfontein, an agency of the department.

The vision of the Art Bank is to promote, foster and stimulate a vibrant market for the collection of South African contemporary visual art as part of the Mzansi Golden Economy (MGE) strategy implementation.

A total of 40 paintings on view were purchased by the Art Bank of South Africa. This is the work of talented emerging artists. The paintings were purchased from the over 229 submissions received for consideration in August last year.

These artworks can be purchased or leased to South African government departments, private companies and private individuals.

Viewing is open from Mondays to Fridays from 08:00 to 17:00, Saturdays and Sundays from 09:00 to 16:00.
