Art fair to showcase Joburg to those on South Africa holidays

Some 20 artists are to participate in a new scheme that will see them produce a body of artwork.

The FNB Joburg Art Fair – which could encourage people to go on holidays to South Africa – takes place from September 23rd – 25th.

Two groups – the Bag Factory Artists' Studios and the Artist Proof Studio – are coming together to produce an artwork entitled 20 Fine Years.

It will consist of a portfolio of prints that will try to showcase the urban landscape of Gauteng.

Sara Hallatt, director of the Bag Factory Artists Studios, said: "This project is an important collaboration between the Bag Factory Artists' Studios and Artist Proof Studio, reinforcing our ethos of creative exchange and innovation."

She continued by saying she is excited by the opportunity to showcase the visual arts community.

The FNB Joburg Art Fair is the only event of its kind in the African continent.
