Send your art to Anova

The Anova Health Institute is inviting local artists to take part in their Art for Anova initiative.

In a bid to support local artists, Anova, an NGO dedicated to improving health of all South Africans with particular emphasis on HIV, is inviting aspiring, local artists to upload images of their paintings, drawings or photographs (anything that can be hung on a wall), along with their dimensions, to the organisation’s Facebook page.

Anova will then curate a selection of their favourite pieces for display at their offices, and to a broader audience at an unveiling event. The artists selected by Anova will be offered between R 1 000 and R 10 000 (in addition to framing and couriering costs) for their creations.

According to Anova’s head of marketing Nina Morris Lee the organisation has decided to offer an opportunity to unknown artists instead of sourcing art from a gallery.

The ‘Art for Anova’ initiative, running up until the end of October, is open to artists who have never before been represented by a gallery. Artists wishing to take part should post their image on the wall of Anova’s Facebook page and reference it as ‘Art for Anova’.V
