The 1990 Sasol New Signatures finalists' exhibition

23 August 2019 to 11 September 2019

Over the years the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition, being the longest running competition of its kind in South Africa, has provided a platform for unknown artists to break into the mainstream and has in turn produced many deserving finalists.  The first competition sponsored by Sasol took place at the HSRC Conference Centre from 20 August to 13 September 1990.  2019 therefore marks the 30th competition under the Sasol banner.
As part of the anniversary celebrations the Association of Arts Pretoria is hosting an exhibition of works by artists who were finalists in 1990.  The exhibition will run from 23 August to 11 September 2019, concurrently with the 2019 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition Exhibition which takes place at the Pretoria Art Museum from 22 August 2019 to 29 September 2019.
