The Free State Art Collective (FSAC) has partnered with the New Breed Art Competition, increasing the exposure and benefit to entrants of the visual arts competition.

Artists selected to participate in the New Breed Art Competition Exhibition at Oliewenhuis Art Museum, including the final winners, automatically qualify for consideration and possible inclusion in the exclusive FSAC, founded and headed up by Karen Brusch.

“The New Breed Art Competition gives artists an open door for telling your unique stories, stories your ancestors have shared or stories witnessed in the unfolding present. By the retelling of everything you are, ideas you are passionate about, and reweaving it in whatever medium you feel at home with, and doing this well, you will have an artwork to enter this competition with,” says Brusch.

According to Magdel Louw, Competition Coordinator and Marketing Manager at Phatshoane Henney Attorneys, they are extremely excited to partner with the FSAC in order to leverage the growth and development of Free State art and artists.

“Working with the FSAC certainly takes this competition to the next level and holds enormous value to all entrants in that it allows for the possible opening of a very important door to opportunity, one that’s unique to the FSAC. As former judge and mentor to the competition, we thank Karen for her long-standing support for the competition and her investment in our local artists,” says Louw.
